Tell your bike that the white GSA that was in the crate next to yours says 'hi'. Mine was on the same boat. I picked mine up from BMW of Manhattan last week.

Congrats! Too bad I just saw this now or I'd have ridden up to hermys to meet and you and drool on the new scoot! Well, hope you had a great day picking up the bike and making your way west. Post up some pics!

I lost track in the thread...was this a 2015 model or is it too early yet?

It is a 2014...I think 2015s are due in September. There wasn't much/any sun,but I was picking up a new bike so it was a great day!

I was at hermys mayne two weeks ago and saw the olive gsa with a sold tag. Betting that was yours. Awesome machine....thats my color if I were buying one. Im staying strong with my 2012GSA....not going anywhere near the new ones....im just not that strong a man....not to mention dealing with Dept of War and Finance.

Good luck and enjoy. You'll be covering Micheux on quite the bike!

Follow Up Report:

Lone Star BMW ended up installing two different sets of RH cam shaft sprockets to restore it to spec. That quieted the engine a bit but then the RH throttle body crapped out on me which was particularly nasty. Fortunately it didn't catch me in a bad spot of traffic.

I've had the bike back for a few days with limited opportunity to ride but so far it seems to be good as new. Enduro Pro mode still makes it a wheelie machine. Have yet to do a top-end run which will be limited in duration running the Twinduros with their Q speed rating.

Using the new GSA for its intended purpose. One of them anyway---this is such a great motorcycle, I'm not sure where it's better---on or off road. Truth is, who cares?

Here on graded dirt and gravel in the mountains outside San Diego.

Above all stop pandering to posts from morons like Venteuri who can't even spell Venturi properly.

With 2500 replies, this thread is many things, but buried isn't one of them.
The title is so vague that it's virtually worthless.
