Congratualtions on your new ride
Glad you are enjoying it!
Well my evil twin ticked over 120,000kms today
Bought new in Jan 2011, it has spent about 18 mths in transit around the world, or in storage as I rode other bikes here in Oz and OS.
Only problems have been replacement of a fuel pump at 75000k's and a stator at 110,000k's, oh, and bent rear shock bolts.
Can't complain about that.
Didn't know that you get a /!\ when you reach that kind of mileage. Maybe your engine is going to explode now o0
I love seeing that....120,000km....that means my bike will last at least another 5yrs:)
I normally do all my own servicing, but recently had an electrical issue I just couldn't find...and the bike was running in emergency mode.
Still just in warranty, so bit the bullet, and had BMW in South Melbourne (Australia) service it. Felt like bubba had bent me over and had his way with me when I got the bill, but to their credit....it is "brand new sweet!" all over again.
25000km, valves required quite a bit of shimming (4.95), but it is silky smooth again now. 2 weeks ago I was trading this bike for a new one....now it has definitely shifted back to the "keep for ever" side of the garage....assuming I can find a HP2e to keep the km down on this thing. Anyone got a HP2e in Aus?
We modified the stock low seat by adding two strips of foam to level it out, add a bit of cush for the tush and left some space for the family jewels. After the foam was shaped we laid some finishing tissue to smooth it out make it nice. This is the third and final iteration.
I actually didn't have two many complaints with the stock low seat. It's a bit thin on the padding, but the shape is good. We are leaving on a two week trip tomorrow so I thought I'd play around with it.
This is with the tissue before putting the cover back on.
Well, I just added a touratech Extreme rear shock.
The first two miles were glorious! And then I had to get back to work.
Yeah no kidding right?
But it really WAS a great two miles! And even more sad...no rest for me this weekend...down to work on the vacation property and I need my tools. Storage on the GS only goes so far. Good times!
She traded herself. Never thought she would, but she did. Now tasked with taking off all the stuff, I put on her.....
She grew tired of CF and moved on.
When shall we look in the FM?
.... Perhaps your right. All of the extras are going. Hoping to begin posting them this afternoon.
I ended up with a 2014 R1200GS..... I had driven many 12 GS, and have never considered it my bike, until their new WC premiered. Very surprised.
I've been holding out on spending more money on mine. Thinking the wc 1200 is for me as well. Did you get esa?
I did, about as loaded as you can get it.
Mine spat a front brake calipre....
Out in a trail, on a short ride where I didn't take spares or tools!
I know....I know.
Magyvered it with some bolts from my engine guard.
