When I had my GS crated for a move, the dealer used a crate from a newly delivered GS (no charge for the crate). I saved the crate and made a workbench out of it.

If you want some fine lumber, ask for the crate...you paid for it. If the dealer refuses, tell him to deduct for the crate cost.

Take it home and make a table out of it.

That thing needs an underseat exhaust system. The muffler looks like someone bolted a Dyson vacuum cleaner to the RH side. It is just downright ugly.

Also, I have noticed that BMW is hanging more plastic on the GS as the new models evolve.

Congratulations on your new GS. Most of us here in the colonies cannot afford one any more....they're just too expensive.

If I ever buy a newer model (mine is a 2001), I'll likely buy a used one.

It appears much larger in pictures, the exhaust is actually quite narrow in person. Not that it changes the look (which I am fine with) but it is not canister shaped like the side profile would suggest. Personally, I hate underseat exhausts, so I am glad they didn't go that route.

Where is the bike picture located? Just heard from my dealer that mid-May is when the northeast USA is probably going to see the new machines. :eek1

They have arrived here in Newfoundland in Eastern Canada. Local dealer has a snazzy new red one on the floor.

That's about the time - the snow is melting there. I think California should get them first, so we can get some 1200 GS action pictures fast. :-)

And congrats to all the new owners - it looks like you are going to own an amazing bike.

Hope to see some of you soon on the road

I'm pretty sure it will be a LOT sooner than that. In fact, I know that they are already in the US and have a team of technicians fixing a recall on them as we speak. Those should be ready shortly. Last I heard, late March is the release date.

Has anyone been killed yet by a tank slapper as they uncrated their new bike?:evil
