OK, now we need the R1200 GS LC TURBO!
all this viedo needs are the guys from american chopper in the back ground.
MHZ or MIA will be your plate, depending upon the speed of request... I had my papers on Tuesday and the bike was probably delivered at the dealer on Wednesday.
BTW, it just started snowing here as we speak.
Has anyone here installed the 2" Rox risers on the new GS yet? If so, did you have to reroute the cables?
2" Rise x 1 1/8" Stem Clamp x 1 1/8" Pivoting Handlebar Risers
I knew someone was going to chime in with this...but you've seen many posts on here of people saying that theirs didn't, right? With a 5amp max, the most you can draw from that plug is about 60watts. Most heated gear will exceed that.
Wasn't there a limitation to 5 Amps on the system before it shuts down? One vest might work but not the other.
CanBus is the network protocol exchanging data between the controllers. We use it as a synonym for everything bad, it's a BOSCH product and most vehicles use that protocol also to reduce wiring to a great extend. Ultimately it's a good thing I'd say.
I agree...canbus gets blamed inappropriately...yes the system only allows a limited Amp draw from the power adapter and many people have run into issues using it. I assume the new GS has the same limitations but don't know for sure.
Yup, I believe Rich was referring to the "key fob".
Since we are on the topic of heated grips being not warm on the LC GS. I may add, that on my 2004 R1200C, the left side heated grip is quite less warmer than my right side. Although my bikes heated grips have nothing to do with LC GS, but it does create a question as to how BMW routes supplied heat to them.
Has anyone noticed any difference in warmth between the left & right grips? Are they at the same level?
Nope. On a treadmill
Bought mine in Antwerp too, mid of january and delivery stiil scheduled on time: end of april.
haha, the testers strapped the bikes to treadmills to run up the odometers while they went to the bar and drank Seems like they would have been better off giving a few bikes to ADVers and journalists and let them do the testing!
I was told when I collected the bike that there would be an alarm remote, but they were waiting for confirmation from BMW. If your dealer heard that there won't be one two days ago, then go with that. It's a bit if a shame though, as I like to have both options.
I went with the new Touratech risers, as they don't involve chopping up cables. They didn't offer the 2" version of their risers for this reason.
...should have extended the water cooling loop to include the handlebars, would have kept them nice and comfy if you ask me
Mine was deliberately bought prior to the autoshow. Officially ordered min on Jan 2.
Does anyone know or can predict when the GSA liquid cooled version will be available? Thanks in advance. Spook
Yup, snowing again here as well :huh
Hell no, that would be a disaster in summer (even though summer seems so far away).
The pre-enjoyment of waiting should still be on your site
