We in SA call the non spoke wheels ones the standard R1200GS and the ones with spokes and other few extras the Adventure model, they cost +/- R10 000 more than the standard model.

Thumbs down

From ther Motorcyclist review...The engine is a little less tractor-like in slow, off-road situations, and where the quick-revving new engine benefits with increased midrange or high rpm power, it is a little bit less friendly when lugging through a tricky section of dirt.

Yeah, right. We were all expecting the new engine to feel like a 3-cylinder engine or an inline 4, it's a boxer.

Hopefully then maybe I can buy one of your pristine rides......

Actually I am eagerly anticipating more reviews of this new GS as well. I think I am going into the market within the year for either a GS new maybe older or the Multi but I can't make up my mind yet....and life circumstances only allow one bike at a time for now.......damn being responsible can sure get in the way of having fun......
