    Love the Tiger and I'm very likely not getting rid of it. Just too many bikes out there to try. I'm on a crazy schedule there to offset my crazy work load and schedule a little bit I guess.

    Is that dongle provided with the bike, or do they want extra money for it?

    about the Multi-controller, I really think the GS have the same as the 2011-2012 RT and in the GS case is not going to be a Multi-nothing just the GPS :cry also the GS didn't have the K1600 color TFT where you can control the heated grips, ESA and almost everything in the RT it's only for Radio and GPS and for us just the GPS no radio no grips no nothing!

    Sure, you really badly want that new German Boxer, admit it :D
    ...just like the rest of us, there's simply nothing that compares with it right now, right?

    I do admit that I like what I read. Still, the Tiger is an absolute blast to ride, and in some ways better for me than the GS was. The suspension on the GS was too harsh for me - 72kg isn't the typical Bavarian build ... :lol3

    The Tiger is better adjusted to my taste at this point, but I have high hopes with the new suspension on the new GS and the new windshield also looks a whole lot more thought out than the old POS.

    So, yes, the GS is a hard to beat package, the Tiger was better for me personally, but I think the new GS can surpass it and I also learned my hatred for chains all over again. I plain hate the idea of chain drive on my main ride. I'd take belt over chain any day for my style of riding.

    I like "Wasserboxer" better, what's a wethead?
    The BMW marketing dude said that the new engine is "precision cooled" and not merely water cooled, haha...

    Sadly 110kg aint a regular size either..... if you're not in that sweet zone, ESA's a bitch as it means I ride around with single rider and luggage mode on....

    Be nice if you could option for a stronger preload.....

    *(yes I know, lose weight, but I bench more'n I weigh, got to, just to get the GSA upright!:D )

    OK, I put together a table using values from the above chart and the Woxer torque curve I previously posted. Here are the torque values for each and the % increase for the Woxer engine:

    I've been reading this thrad for a long time now, I now believe BMW have released a youtube video brain washing you all. "ze stupid peoples vill never know Vy zay shtopped liking ze Triumph, he he"
    Don't get me wrong I'm a GS fan and have ridden boxers almost exclusively for the last 15 years. But Jeez the hedonism in this thread is driving me away. Lets get some real world tests before anouncing it has taken over from sliced bread.
