    That's the first one I have ever seen with the rear mudguard removed. Looks excellent / much better. I might remove mine! Does it throw up a lot of dirt at the back?

    Sweet lookin' bike. I went back and forth between the blue and the black. In the end I chose the black because I was coming off a Rallye.

    How are you liking your Bridgestone AX41's? I just bought a set and have not yet spooned them on.

    I like them. I got about 400 miles on them now, 30 of which were off road. They're fantastic in the slop and a good sand tire. Just need to experiment a bit with tire pressure. On the street they're a bit better than I'd expected...a bit of noise, that slightly "loose" feeling you get from knobbies but its not near as bad as their appearance would suggest. They appear to be wearing well so far.

    Massabusa, good looking Exclusive. Curious which Touratech seat you have. I had their “Breathable” seat on my F800GS and thought it was terrific. Considering their “DriRide” two part seat for my R1250 GS, hoping it’s as good as my previous one. Want to hear some feedback on it before dumping that kind of money on it.

    Thank you!
    I love this bike!
    The seat is a- http://www.sargentcycle.com/Seats-Accessories/BMW-R1200GS-R1200GSA-2013-Low-No-Heat/ bought it on sale this winter. I like it. I put 2500 miles on it in 7 days or so of riding- didn't think much about it! My 1250 is a low, this seat is wider and firmer than the stock LOW seat that comes standard on a LOW suspension bike.
    I have had the Touratech seats on other bikes- and I liked those as well. Most recently on my KTM 950.

    Is there a reason why all the standard GS's I've seen so far all have spoked wheels and not the cast? Is that just the american bikes?

    My dealer only orders them with the spokes.

    Because Americans think they look tougher with spoke wheels

    Yeah but, as hammick says below...

    The HP style with black cast wheels would be very nice.
