New 1200GS-Adventure in the Garage
 
Oh Yea......I just got home from the dealer with my shiny new 2013 R1200GS-Adventure. 3 miles on the clock when I rode it out the door of the show room.

Yea I know.....No picture = no bike

Here's the deal.....I could get into a long drawn out fight with smugmug trying to figure out how to post a picture or I could go out and ride. Take a guess what I'm doing?

Pictures tonight after I slather some mud on the thing.

:rayof

Congrats, mine is two weeks older.

What color is it, and most importantly - what oil are you going to use?

Mine is just shy of 2 months old, triple black 90th. Wife and I were on vacation in Hawaii and she knew I was thinking about it. She tells me one day, just call the dealer and put a deposit on it, then u can focus on vacation and having fun. Best wife ever!!!! :clap

I won't be able to figure out what oil to run till I determine what tire pressure to use in my rear tire.

As for the color, its the Sapphire Black Metallic 90th Anniversary bike.

Now I just need to figure out how to point this thing to a smug mug photo.

3 miles on the clock with the take off tires strapped down for the ride home.

The old ride looking lonely in the parking lot headed in for service.

Another 150 on the clock this morning. It was kind of a hazy day looking down on the Columbia River from Old German Town Road. I'll see if I can get a better picture of the Columbia on this afternoons break in ride. 41% to my way to the 600 mile service. I'm trying to get the bike in for a service early next week so I can try and make the Touratech Rally on 27th.
