    Last one with the standard seat height.

    Rode the 2021 Ducati 950S Multistrada and this 2020 R1250GS back to back, and the GS won me over.

    I came close to buying a 2020 GS but opted for a 2020 GSA instead, I like that paint color and it goes really well with the gold rims. Enjoy and ride safe brother

    Congrats! RL, didn't you use to have a k1600? I was Wine Emperor on that forum. I didn't post much, but I did buy a crankcase plug from you! I like this bike way better than my k1600GTL except for the sound of the engine!

    I love that color scheme with the gold rims. It looks way better then the HP color with gold rims.

    I'm now an unpaid Administrator for the K1600 forum.

    Not so good for backroad U-turns. A little slip and the "safety" systems kicked in and killed forward movement. Once that beast starts to fall, best get out of the way.

    Been there, done that with the old k1600. At least the GS/GSA is usually not damaged in a tip over, unlike the k1600.

    Welcome back... can’t believe I’m on my 4th GS myself, after primarily being a Goldwing rider.

    I almost went with the same color as yours but went with the HP instead. Kind of had a hard time deciding from all the colors available. Congrats

    That's a beaut. I dislike the gold rims usually, but the black/gold trim scheme nails it.

    Enjoy.
