+1. Put your drink down and give us an update
To ease the waiting. First news are starting to leak http://www.motorcyclenews.com/MCN/N...anuary/jan2213-bmw-r1200gs-first-impressions/
"Were just about to head off-road and try out the new endure mode"
I don't want that mode, how do I order a bike without it?
I'd rather have it called Press On Regardless mode.
There have been a couple riding around South Island as part of the "One World, One R1200GS" campaign. Very, very impressive!
I will take a guess. The best thing since sliced bread. Right?
I find sliced bread pretty ordinary. It's a bike that will again put it at least five years ahead of the opposition IMHO. And I will admit the opposition have been doing a bit of catch up of late.
Yeah, especially with that new-fangled water-cooling!
It's competitors will be wishing that it was only the water cooling that defines this new model

Don't forget to use genuine BMW water in that thing.
I don't doubt it will be a great bike, but I don't see anything revolutionary about it that hasn't been done on the MS already. And too much tech gadgetry is not necessarily a plus in this class if you lean on the adv side of the riding spectrum.
Is a street bike. Different as apples and oranges. 17 inch front wheels don't cut it in the dirt world. The GS is a real Adventure Bike as is the 990 KTM Adv, Yamaha S10, Triumph 800s etc.
Repost from the boxer forum. One of the journalists on the press launch event had a fatal accident.
Kevin Ash, oh no!
Oh no indeed. One of the most independent, accurate and entertaining voices in the bike writing business. I hadn't realised until I saw this that his was the report I was looking forward to most. He'll be missed, a lot. Thoughts for his family.
Agreed, I have been constantly checking his site the last couple days for any thoughts from him on the new GS. Terrible news.
What a shame, thoughts go to his family.
Very sad, prayers for his family.
