Thought that was the oil seal ring. :huh
Nope, that was about 20 pages ago
Too bad. You are missing a good part of pure motorcycling. :)
(esp. when you realize you can ride almost the same when others can't)
I ride even in snow (within reason). I don't do seasonal riding.
Here's some GS porn for you guys.....................
If you're seeing it in person, can you tell me if there's a good place I can mount my flesh light? That's how much I love the new bike.
Still pondering if i should get an aftermarket exhaust. Remus or akra.
The akra looks awesome, and probably sounds epic, but its over £800 in the uk:huh
Indeed, it is on the expensive side. For the regular akra the price is not yet known. See and hear before deciding.
I'll take a Remus please.
It is a bit cheaper, but not sure on the lloks just yet, but a carbon(look) hexacone is a possibility.
Sucks that there will be no Premium plus models at launch for the US bikes (or at least it is unlikely). I guess I will be waiting until April/May when the first non-launch shipments come in.
I do prefer the european system. Mine should be on the production line this week or next week. With all the farkles.
Good thing is that LC has the exhaust on the "proper" side (as 90% of bikes and unlike BMW), so it will be MUCH easier to find one.
That said, for once the Akra by BMW looks very good this time.
Is it just me or do these engine guards look like they'd have to come off to check the valves?
The front does not look right it looks heavy. What I really want is another HP2 but that will never happen now BMW have decided to became "Urban" in their bike designs.
Ummm, what did I miss? Who said no Premium plus models in US until April/May?
I think I read that BMW consciously moved the optical weight forward, I like it, depends a bit on the camera perspective as well...
BMW rep at Charlotte IMS said that no Premium Plus would be available with the 4-5 bikes each dealership is getting for launch (which will probably be in dealerships next week). This is speculation but the reason may be due to the LED light still getting DOT approval back when the bikes were being assembled, which was several weeks ago.
Stopped by my dealer today to take care of some other business and they said the same thing. They said you can never know with BMW and a few might end up as the Premium Plus models but they wouldn't hold their breath. Told me that bikes would be in the buildable phase soon and would be built in March/April with a delivery in April/May.
That's probably because they have seen the behinds of the typical riders ...
Wow- Thanks Bazgab. Heard about the LED approval speculation. My dealer also reported the 4-5 bike expectation... Sounds like my dealerships GM might be banking on the "you never know with BMW" option as he's told me my farkle rich option I dropped a deposit on was due with the first delivery. Either that or he's just feeding my anticipation... either way, I think I'll invite him to my next poker game. (unless of course he proves to be correct next week).
Could it be that they're uploading a software update for the premium plus? I just don't understand why you wouldn't want to put a wide range, including a full option, of models on the floor.
