    By the way, the talented UK journalist Kevin Ash died in an accident on this South Africa press event. I for one will miss his brand of irreverent and knowledgeable writing. My thoughts and in prayers go with his wife and three daughters.

    So heard second hand that I.S. is expecting 4 GS' in their first shipment, one of which is a low suspension model. I think I'm #2 on the list...didn't you say you were #3? So looks like there could be a bike for us early on, provided the color/options are to our liking.

    Nice videos Tallguy. I'm a little confused on how that BMW one world tour works. I thought there were five riders riding together, but I only see one in this video. So does each rider only ride one continent of the five listed and rides solo? :ear

    I have no clue either, BMW is doing a good job with all these video and pictures, there seems to be no shortage of them.

    Yep. There are five winners and each rides a selected route on one of the five continents. They have a small back up/camera crew but they are riding solo.

    I see, thanks. That's fantastic marketing. The motorcycle you get for free but you pay for the lifestyle when going with a BMW, the ride of your life..., I just wish my Sunday morning rides were that great, I'm afraid they are mostly boring compared to what I see here :(:

    And in my opinion, better is yet to come. I am familiar with some of the routes they will be taking on some of the other continents and cant wait to see their pictures and videos.

    I'm very concerned that that LED headlight is a sideways horseshoe. How then can good luck not fall out? Not good. Not good at all. :rofl

    All kidding aside. Why do GS riders immediately stand up when the road has only pebbles on it? I just rewatched On Any Sunday (for the 48th time - more or less) and Malcolm Smith remained seated unless there was a big obstacle in front of him. Was he wrong? Is the GS really that demanding?

    Sorry. Bored and just passing time. :1drink

    Oalvarez, have u ridden a Diavel? I think the WC GS and a Diavel would be great stable mates. I'm considering the new GS or the 1190 ADV to go along with my Diavel.
