    I agree, except for the instrument cluster. A work of art, it seems to blend german engineering, swiss watch crisp dials and italian style. Sweet.

    I must be in the minority here. I really like the looks of my current '12 GSA, and I love the looks of the new bike (except maybe the spork on the front). I'll own one in 2-3 years, once the GSA is out and they've ironed out the freshman bugs.

    I think so, and I imagine you still need to lube those. Not a big deal.

    No, I was talking about the transmission input splines that cause you to have to take the back of an oilhead apart to apply a dollars worth of grease.

    Driveshaft splines on oilheads are easily accessible by comparison.

    I wonder how long it will take Touratech or Wunderlich to start offering the new LED lights as a upgrade for the current GS. Put me on top of the order list!

    I wonder why not put some kind of grills in front those big radiators. And wonder how hot would be having the headres so close to the feet?

    I think BMW hit this one out of the park. I must be in the minority because I think it is absolutely gorgeous! The refinement of the design details really stands out to me. They've refined the old GS without ruining it or making it a blvd queen. It looks refined but aggressive. It actually seems MORE offroad capable while being better on-road. Perfect. This is the first time I've ever thought about parting with my beloved '06 R1200GS but I've also contacted the local dealer to let them know I'm interested in one. I can't wait to see this bike in person. I've not been so excited about a new bike in years. :clap

    The euro bikes have had those turn signals for several years. You can put them on a '07+ bike. They have beeen on mine for 4 years and I have never had a problem with them.

    They gotta leave something for Touratech to sell... :lol3

    Heat from the jugs has never been an issue with oil/air cooled boxers. I'm sure this one will be no exception.

    I've read somewhere in the last 48 hours that it will be available but I can't find it. I think BMW would be nuts to exclude the US for this feature. Can someone post where it's official that we're getting it?

    I'm number one deposit at my dealer but if it's not there I'm sticking with my '10 GS.

    I agree 100%. I figure I'll trade up once my warranty runs out. Unless of course I'm still smitten with my '12 GSA - which I currently am...


    This would be completely ludicrous!!! There's no way they've left out cruise control...it can not be!!

    Then again.......................................
