I'm looking for a new bike to do a South American Trip in May 2014, I've never owned a BMW and after covering 80,000 touring miles on two Vstrom 650's (different continents) in the last few years (zero problems with them) I'm eager to try something different. I like the sound of the new GS but I have one problem with them and that is the odd tire sizes the new bike runs. At times on the road I had trouble finding the tire I wanted for the Vstrom and had to compromise. Considering that the Strom ran a fairly common tire size I can't imagine the difficulty one could have finding a special Metzler 120/70/19 in out back Peru. Any comments....???
