2008 12GS / 12GS ADV (Merged) Threadfest

My dealer told me that the awaited 800GS will be presented at the Paris Moto Show end of September.
And that the 12GS and the 12GSADV have been slightly relooked too.

Did anyone have pictures of the 12GS yet ?
(Spare us the photoshoped picts of the 800GS)

my dealer had nothing but a phone call about it. no pict, no info. doh :(

I have been riding and I am home for one night and back out in the morning. What are the rumors on the 2008 R1200-GS? Thanks, Maddog

Nothing new... my dealer just got one in today and he called me to ask me if I was still thinking of buying it... the only thing that's new on it are the LED turn signals..

How much more are the 2008's? My dealer told me that he would not see 2008 models until October or November.

In the last 2008 rumor thread, someone said that blue will be a color option. I'm hoping that will be the case since I'm about to order one and I want blue

The blue was in reference to the GS Sport not GSA.

Some refer to the standard GS as a GS "Sport" and the Adventure as a "GSA"

I don't know if it's what they're referring to but I saw a R1200GS/S in a European magazine last month. It seemed to be a one-off special by Senger, I think. A trimmed-down, souped-up R1200GS with a special blue paint-job.

I also believe that they "in Europe that is" were offering a special edition of some sort. Factory crash bars,taller wind screen blah blah blah,almost exactly like an Adventure except the fuel tank was the standard size.

Maybe it was over at UKGSer I saw the thread or here.........
It was some time ago,maybe spring or early summer I read it.

There's an all white GS in one of my local dealers. Looks pretty cool!
