Intermot & a new GS
Am i the first person from USA to sit on the new GS????
Exclusive closeups not available anywhere - u r welcome :)
yes its on the other side - your old luggage just became useless ( kind of like the new plug on the iphone 5)
It's purdy, but I could also buy a car for what it costs :D
It will be
"Bike of the Year..." That is my prediction anyway. I am surprised they threw the exhaust on the right side, now they need to re-tool all new luggage- not just at BMW, but ALL the aftermarket companies...!
I like what they did, I just don't understand the exhaust thing- plus it mucks up the beautiful FD view!
I mostly like it better than the current version but it's just too busy.
Is that the oil level sight glass I see behind the exhaust on the same side as the filler?
Where's the 50. As in 1250. Maybe I just can't see it. No coolant lines that I could see, pretty edgy looking machine. I hope the market gets flooded with lightly used 1200's. :evil
I just can't figure out how they're gonna put a big gas tank on the ADV models - if they even produce them in the future. I guess they'll figure something out though.
Still glad I went with a '13 GSA TB at this point though - better the devil you know, IMHO! :evil
FWIW, I really do like the looks and all of the new features (if they don't cause more problems than they supposedly solve) of the new GS except for that "spork-beak" and the headlight, which to me are just downright hideous.
i've got brake and LED envy, lol
Just seems like way too much is going on. There doesnt seem to be a line for the eye to follow. Bike seems chopped up and hard to focus on. Also dont like how you can see a screw right on the air scoop. Couldnt they have hidden that or designed differently to avoid seeing it?
Thanks for posting...so what do you think after sitting on it and seeing it up close?
Im liking it alot. Thanks for the pics.
The more you look at it the more you like it. Im sure its a different bag in person.
Alot of redesign and I think it was time. Theres only so many different shades of lipstick you can slap on the gs before colors begin to recycle.
I do like the new gs in white tho:norton
I am looking forward to seeing the gsa...o and long term abuse reports of the gs.
having said that, i am really liking what i see.
I'm assuming that the new bikes have the same 36,000 mile limitation on the warranty? I wonder how much those new electronic shocks cost when they have to be replaced? The ESA shocks on the current model are around $2000 each I think. Maybe $3000 each for these new ones? Hopefully Wilbers and/or Ohlins will have come up with repairable units by the time the OEM's start to wear out.
