Werner Hollaender Cool, you're one of the first Herbert Schwarz! What do you think of the dynamic ESA? Does it make the bike better offroad?

Herbert Schwarz it is a big change and makes the bike beetr in offroad-conditions. The bike feels like 50 kilo less weight, even if the weight is the same as the old R1200GS

Henrik Johansson That's amazing! Can't wait to see what the Adventure-version will look and feel like, hope that you get a chance to review that one as well for us, Herbert I'm going to Stockholm this weekend for the motorcycle-exhibition, and David and the guys at

True, but if this thread were in the correct forum, I might not have seen it.

No. The press release was supposed to be today, but was cancelled because of moto-journalist Kevin Ash's death at the event, today

Profound Sense of Loss

I do not have the words to communicate my profound sense of loss, for a man I never knew.
I think all of us on this board are impacted in a really deep, solemn manner- I know that I am.
My heart goes out to the family and friends of Kevin.

The launch of a new bike that can seem so very important to us moto-heads seems quite trivial today after reading this development and certainly provides perspective to what really matters in life. Thoughts and prayers to his family.

Godspeed Mr. Ash

Tragic. Condolences to his family, and prayers for the late Kevin Ash.
