    Rather than doing stunts or performances with a GS I rather enjoy the places she can take me to.

    That's just suspension and new dashboard buttons testing before hiting the road with new GS for first tour... :)

    I can't even do wheelies... Poor me...

    Yeah right.
    I say that to myself many times.
    Wheelies are by accident too.

    Eh bien, Vous pouvez dire des choses comme ├ža... :bmwrider

    But I'm only trying to enjoy my kind of riding, as I'm sure you will enjoy your kind of riding. With the greatest respect I admire your adventure style... For me, the greatest fun will be in the Belgian Ardennes, French Vosges, German Eifel and Sauerland, chasing down wannabe racer boys or just having fun in the twisties :D

    Does anyone know if the front mudguard on the new GS is the same as on the old one? I've taken my fender extender off as the bike is going later this week, and will keep it if it will fit. Obviously, someone that is in close contact with one already will know the answer.:D

    Really doubt it.
    Nothing at the front is the same.
    Wheel is wider (most importantly), forks are thinner, break assembly is different, there are fork aerodynamic protectors etc.

    Does the 2013 gs have an obd2 connector or are they still using their proprietary crap?

    I just got my hands on some of the BMW accessories. While the varios are similar to the current ones the crash bars seem like they will cover more and the tank bags look really well built. Definitelysome cool accessories like adjustable footpegs. If anyone has any questions feel free to pm me and Ill try to help or send pictures if I can.

    I think the Tuono mirrors are confusing him, making him think he's on a hooligan naked. :)

    Well first Tuono had the same HP. Even last Tuono didn't have the torque of GS.

    Hehehe...

    Anybody know if there is anybody making a black version of the crashbars?
    I have H&B black on my (black) GS, but seems that H&B hasn't any news about new GS yet.

    Yes someone can always paint them... Anybody with free time to do the photoshop work for BMW and Touratech versions?
    Maybe they don't look good in black on the new GS.

    Also has anybody found nicer looking cooler grids than Touratech version? I prefer thin chicken wire grils (that make it still look like a cooler).
