    Just got home, 970 miles, fully broken in and over due for an oil change. Ran prefect, from showroom new to gravel dirt roads in under 100 miles from new! Thanks to my GPS misdirection, was a fun detour.

    Finally got to ride my first ever GS at the ripe old age of 58. Why didnt you feckers tell me it was so good. Now I see what the fuss was all about. Wife absolutely loved it on the pillion (anything is better than the Rocket I suppose!)
    Will be ordering an Exclusive in early July. Just waiting to see if any tax breaks come through in the UK to stimulate the economy. Many rumours that they will need to come but wont be hanging on too long to purchase

    Finally BMW makes bikes that don't make me look like an old man.
    So now that I'm old (63) I bought my first one :nod

    You sounding pretty young to us!

    "Age is but a number" is what I hear often..
    At least that's what girls at the men's club keep telling me.

    I agree with Exodus rider and got my GS at 35. I knew I was going to get one eventually but might as well get it now. It's better now than wait.

    Good looking bike there, Speedkelly. I see you got the billet option too. It's worth it for the looks and I haven't regretted it.

    Upgraded a few months ago & finally stopped for a pic. Bike is absolutely fantastic - previously on an '01 1150GS

    Great videos. I may have to consider those tires for my next set.

    No, they won't. They are part of the luggage prep for the standard GS. It really depends on the local market what is available.

    Let me be clearer. If the bike is not equipped with the GSA racks, it will come with GS footpegs. That means they will fit for the GS Vario luggage.

    That might be true in the US as far as I know, but not in the whole world. The amount racks are non-standard, and the adventure is not “meant” to run Varios. They do come without Vario lugs as base model in some countries.
