    Now that looks awesome! Thanks for taking the effort to create the chart. It looks even more impressive on the graph than it did in a table. :D By the way, as long as you are photoshopping, can you fix the axis labels which Web Bike World screwed up?

    Seriously guys type in Wethead in Google images and see what kind of pictures come up, then try the same for Wasserboxer. Wethead doesn't make any sense at all if you ask me; at least Camhead made sense :wink:

    Actually my suggestion was Woxer (pronounced Voxer), but I don't really care, just wish we could get back to some real talk about the bike itself.

    Now again , if you combine this chart that showed up in BMW literature

    [​IMG]

    and then use same chart for older model from Web bike world

    [​IMG]

    and then

    first correct mistakes that they did by swithing labels on axis ( thanks EJ 92606 .. )

    then

    adjust for diferent spans of rpm , adjust the scale and do it just a bit more precisely than I tried before

    it looks something like this

    Me like it !!! :evil

    I just ordered a new GS 3rd on the list at San Jose BMW :clap. That said: Anyone looking for an HP2? New Ohlins and fork springs (Aftershocks set up for 250lb rider), custom triple clamps, under-seat tank, Highway dirt bike switches, electrical panel with spares to front of bike (wired thru HWDB switches with LED) Full exhaust, skid plate, new foam filters, stainless steel kickstand mount. some new plastic, new engine guards, about 6K miles looks great, have all the old parts that go with it. asking around 14K in San Jose CA PM me if interested.

    You guys are hung up on the three letter prefix. AIR, OIL, HEX, and CAM are all nouns. WET is an adjective.
    Therefore, my vote is for WATERhead :deal

    It could be an acronym, too.... such as Why Even Try?






    (this should ring a bell for any Reality Hackers in the Bay Area, circa late 80s...)

    I'm about to order one bu when out driving today with 5C and some rain I was eminentely comfortabe on my GSA with an Aeroflow.
    The new GS does not look like it would protect as well against the elements as my present machine.
    Suggestions please wait for the new GS for 6 months of pine for the GSA for year and a half ?
    Or buy a GS now and a GSA when it comes?:clap
