    Oh, he doesn't hate the GS, he is just a ludite that thinks the pinicle of the GS was the 1100!:deal

    He is also a little bitter at times that BMW had the nerve to change his beloved perfection of an 1100GS!!:lol3

    Awwww. I thought the post was clever.

    I love the boxer riding experience.

    The boxer ownership experience, not so much.

    Let's just hope that BMW does better with it than Volkswagen did. Or maybe they will copy Subaru or Honda...

    Quite the opposite. I embrace sound technological innovation. "If they will buy it, then we will build it."

    You can't blame the marque for maximizing its profits. In the bygone era, riders were not returning often enough to their dealers. They kept their machines much longer as well. The technology exists to build a highly reliable machine that will last 300,000 mi without bizarre, expensive failures. Not enough profit in that. Longevity, owner-serviceability, low cost of ownership are no longer driving new purchase decisions.

    As consumers, it is we who are ultimately responsible for what is produced. If the marque is different today than yesteryear in its design philosophy, then that is only because they have zeroed in on their chosen market segment. I'd love to see a fresh, innovative, totally redesigned touring "GS" even if we had to leave the boxer behind. It may come when the market is ready.

    BMW will be at only two International Motorcycle Shows this winter...it would be something to see a water cooled boxer debut in Los Angeles in December. Still won't matter much to me personally as I currently own the best BMW moto ever built!:clap

    Cheers,

    Maybe somebody should sneak into his garage and flash new firmware on his R1100...:freaky
    Now that would be something, BMW updating our bikes whether we want it or not!

    Making fun of an unreleased, unannounced, vaporware bike takes some of the fun out of the wintertime daydreaming. Puh.

    If BMW shows it in Long Beach, I will go to the one in NY.
    Chances of that happening? Nil.

    Not even close. The water cooled bike is reported to have the intake at the TOP of the cylinder, not the rear. The exhaust at the BOTTOM, not the front. That pic is of a standard '10~'12 model year camhead. The first picture was of an '04~'09 hexhead.
