Fast forward to 2014!: Seriously considering new 1190 Adv standard model here in the US of A, and hoping to hear about reliability you all have experienced so far. Put 40,000 miles on 2011 R1200GS and had no issues - also BMW support system is tops, not inexpensive, but dealer network is extensive.
Any updates on annoying issues such as sore wrist due to fly-by-wire throttle, undue heat and hard seat?? Anything else?
