Thanks Denial, it is close to at least. It is just a delight to spend some afternoons there during winter when the workspace is tidy, the coffee is plenty, the music is loud and the friends are the best you can get. And now one more GS and a GSA will be parked there. More friends
When you work together with good friends chatting and fixing the winter don`t feel that long I guess we can`t hit the road again until April... 5 months! Oh, 5 months...

My new to me GS on Longride 2011 (daytrip)

Longride 2011 is an Australian motorcycle charity event that raises funds for prostate cancer. The 'longriders' are all meeting from around Australia at the Great Ocean Road - I expect there'll be hundreds that make it to Victoria. My work was good enough to give us paid work days to participate but I couldn't justify the time away from my area (and home)

Anyways, it was good to get away, even for just a day. Our small group escorted the longriders for a few hours then we split and headed into the mountains. Nice day for it too!

New-to-me 2009 GSA

This thing is so so much better than my 2000 1150GS. It's a 2009 with 7500 miles. She really delivers the mail.

Commute:
2009 R1200GS

Short trips:
2009 R1200GS Adventure

I started this thread 6 years ago and over the years I have owned at least 10 GS's. I find them to be the best bike for me. This is my latest and hopefully my last...

You certainly have arrived at a beauty if this is truly to be your last one but c'mon...you know you are going to want a liquid cooled one in 2013!

I had put about every mod on my 1150 for performance and handling it still didn't measure up to my stock 1200GS.

So anyway, I thought we could have a thread for pics of our 1200 GS's . I would like to see what everyone has done to theirs now that they have been out 1+ years and no - Nachtflug will not be involved - at least till he succumbs and buys one.

So let the displays begin and I will start with my almost 100% bone stock one - non ABS model.

Yes you did. In case you've forgotten what she looked like. . .. Great thread.

ADV Topbox modification......!

These were accident damaged boxes and I used the undamaged portions to make the new boxes cutting off the scuffed and dented section and joining the good 'bits' together

FP.
