Just got my notice from LB BMW regarding the arrival of the new water cooled GS Adventure ... they're taking orders now, choose your color. I'll take the Olive Green and then black out everything that is currently silver.

It would look cooler to go monochromatic Olive Green for a "military" look.

R1200GS Water-Cooler?

Was out to LB BMW for their open house Saturday...no bikes to ride.
I wanted to try one out since they are raving about them.
Got a greasy taco lunch instead.

Rode the new wc gs last week. Apart from the vibration problem, it was very impressive. The gsa is supposed to have a fix for the vibes.

Holy Crap! I was right about the mod needed for the new GSA, photo shop is fantastic. Now just needs a 21" front wheel.
