Let's see your 1200GS/A

Last week I picked up a new non-ABS 1200GS from our local dealer. I sold both my 04 1150 GS and my 05 650 Dakar for this bike. It was worth it.

Tho I really enjoyed both of my previous mounts, after doing a long test ride of the1200GS I knew it was the bike for me. Much lighter feeling than the 1150- and about the same "feeling"as the 650.

I had put about every mod on my 1150 for performance and handling it still didn't measure up to my stock 1200GS.

So anyway, I thought we could have a thread for pics of our 1200 GS's . I would like to see what everyone has done to theirs now that they have been out 1+ years and no - Nachtflug will not be involved - at least till he succumbs and buys one.

So let the displays begin and I will start with my almost 100% bone stock one - non ABS model.

That's because consumers in the USA are idiots. For years BMW in Canada and Aussy have been giving options not seen here at lower prices. I bought my R1100R non-ABS in 2000 and had to pay for heated grips and luggage mounts after the fact. USA BMW buyers will buy whatever they sell at whatever price they ask! Well not me anymore! They did not offer the BMW R1150GS Sport in 2004 with dual spark so I didn't buy one. I might get the non-ABS R1200GS in a few years, if they still offer it. The OEM bags are growing on me.

Funny, most of us have pics of when our bikes were new, before we spent thousands to trick them out, I'm no exception (BMW crash bars, BMW head guards, and Touratech HID light is all there was at that point):


No, I'm not giving the salute, actually its a peace sign, so...peace out...

I submitted this picture in the Flugs GS's that suck thread over one month ago, right before Jim Rowley posted the chick in the G-string and I have yet to be judged. (For those of you who have not seen the little Lolita just go to page 96 of that thread) I am sure posting the same picture here will adversely effect the outcome and cause my bike to suck but there are nicer bikes that have been deemed suckola for lesser reasons.


So here she is, we had just ridden the Loop Road through the northern edge of Everglades NP with my buddy on his R12GS. The picture was taken in front of the old Monroe Station on the south side of the Tamiami Trail between Naples and Miami, I am sure most of you have seen it at least once in your lives unless you were looking on the north side of the road for alligators.


As you can see with your own eyes, the bike has the Vario side bags, Best Rest Skid Plate, Best Rest Splash Guard, BMW Head Guards, BMW Engine Guard, Touratech Hard Steering Parts, Touratech Cockpit Cover with Power outlet, Touratech Headlight Guard and lastly, a BRAKE! LED Taillight. Oh, and the green wire lizard on the mirror to remind me of my 3 year old son (causes me think before doing really stupid stuff..) I have since removed the license plate bracket and lugage rack deally. I am planning on doing a GPS, some PIAA lights on a Terranova bar and maybe even pinstripes on the beak.......

Looking great Rick. I think the yellow is the best color! A buddy of mine had an '05 yellow and it just catches my eye like no other color.

I didn't realize you also had the BestRest pillion plate and back rest. I have one also but haven't been on a long, long ride with it yet. Maybe tomorrow?

Sent an e-mail to Micatech to see if they would just sell me the mounts for the 1150. I just want to see how it looks with the nice, simple mounts, then will likely go with the panniers. I'm not that impressed with the H & B's, will likely sell them on the flea market or find some deserving (like the college kid going to Argentina post) person and give them away.

Thanks for the pix...hey, can I change my username to GADGETBOYii????

Best Regards,
John

PS:I probably would not have noticed the height difference with the Adventure seats. Wouldn't worry about it, but I suspect you are a perfectionist. Anyhow, bike looks just like an Adventure...duhhh, it is!!!

I like the way you mounted the Xenarch's. That would be the rectangular HID light mounted up high. I mounted mine together with my PIAA 910's on a single set of Micatech light mounts. Not real pleased with the look. But they work so far.

Me Bike

I live in South Africa where wild animals roam in the middle of the streets...only kidding. Here we have plenty of dirt roads, so of course I had to settle for a 1200GS. Great bike, but might be forced to change it for the 800GS.... Tried to send attachment , but for some reason I cannot upload a file from my computer?
