But if you want/need to ride comfortably on the interstate for 1,000 miles to get to the dirt you want to trash it in, you can't beat the big Adventure!

Something about that beak makes it look (to me) like it got punched in the nose.

2014 GSA-LC Images Accidentally Released...

Seen on line. 4 images at the link below.

http://motoring.ninemsn.com.au/showr...d-accidentally

"The pictures originate from a design patent BMW accidentally allowed to be published. They show the Adventure from every angle making it possible work out what changes have been made.

Most significant is the larger fuel tank, big enough to match the current Adventure’s 33 litre capacity. If correct, expect a two-thirds increase in capacity over the base R1200GS, boosting range from around 300km to over 500km.

The normal Adventure formula appears to have been followed stringently with the bike’s ride height increased by around 30mm and the stock GS optional wire wheels fitted as standard. Another base GS option shown is BMW’s LED headlight. The luggage rack has also been replaced with a simpler version allowing for fitment of a wide range of aftermarket luggage.

The bike is clearly fitted with BMW’s Dynamic ESA semi-active suspension, but it’s unknown if this is standard equipment. If so, it will allow BMW to program specific settings for the bike’s extra weight and the potentially larger luggage load. The firm’s Enduro ASC traction control is sure to be fitted, as well as the matching ABS set-up which allows anti-lock to be used even when the GS is off-road."

The luggage rack comment comfuses me. It doesn't have a rack at all, or at least nothing more than the base GS has meaning only the factory Vario bags would work in its current configuration.

Same as the old. 600, 6K, and every 6K (or one year) thereafter.
