That is how I felt when I saw it at the International Motorcycle Show , but I am 27 so that should be expected as I am definitely on the lower age range for people who get this bike.

Nice. You beat me. I'm 30 and thought I was the youngest in this group to get it. Congrats I had my 2005 GS at age 27.

Well, BMW is doing something right wrangling in the younger crowd Unless this bike blows up, I'm a GS'r for life.

But if you have problems, we all expect you to adopt the same silence as the father company.
If I have problems, I'll be posting all about them on here. I have nothing to hide

Only down sides - still can't believe the FD doesn't have a breather and at 45, i was the youngest punter in the shop. Looks like the Grey hairs are single handedly putting the economy right..
I'm 37, and expecting to be the youngest there tomorrow

I can pretend to be 23 if you buy me one.
