Feeling your pain in the UK....

For those asking about the software update for enduro pro; I'll re-confirm today but when asked my dealer told me the mode was ready to use. (I originally asked when upon first inspection I didn't see the plug under the seat... turns out it was with the oodles of other material in the plastic bag.)

Going back today to finalize purchase- Will get some more pics and try to answer the nav iv question, photo the under seat area, and not lose the tool kit.

that is a pretty picture... just think how much you will appreciate when the snow meltz and you get to ride in such a beautiful part of the world....IT IS ALL GOOD! I use times like these to show my wife plenty of attention, that way when I ask to take a weekend off so I can ride 2,000 miles or so, she will be glad to loosen the reigns!

Right, I've been out in the garage and had another look round the bike. No Enduro pro plug under the seat, so I'll get onto my dealer on Monday. The rear seat is a little fiddly to remove at first, but once you have the knack, its easy.

Here are some more pictures

Pivot Pegz



Touratech side stand enlarger



Touratech radiator guards



One world sticker



Touratech tail bag



And a picture under the seat, as requested

I don't recall anything in the posting rules that say all posts in a bike-specific thread have to be positive about the bike. People are entitled to express their opinions. If they're reasonable and well-formed, I welcome them. And there is the hypocrisy in posting a negative comment about posters who post a negative comment.

Rode one yesterday just around the parking lot.


Friend Demoed one he got some road miles.


Cluch is excelent. Motor is responsive, weight with power is more than noticalbe over a 1150 but that's kinda a "duh" statment. She felt great, do the foot pegs placement bug any one elce when stopped? Did not bug me but they sit right were you want to put your legs down and as such make the inseam of the bike loger than it really is.


Bike is ugly as sin, the demo did not have all the gizmos and the turn signals are all fucked up But over all I will say BMW did a nice job.

Hi new on here.

Enduro pro plugs are being held by the dealer here in Wales until there is a software update for them or for the bike. They didn't mention a timescale.

Anyone know where I can get hold of those reflectors on the forks in the UK?

That is US DOT regulations or something. Why would you want such an ugly thing on your forks? (ok we don't have to like the same things)

I am sure you can find such things in generic auto-moto shops for like 10 euros or something.

@RichBMW

I tried the bike today in the showroom (just sit on).
Nice bike.
It was told that the new R1200GS was thinner than the previous GS.

Do you confirm my feeling that it's still larger (between the legs) than our HP2s

Thank you
