After our much anticipated visit to the Sahara in Nov... our beloved GS (called Francois) had a bit of a hard time.



On the same trip in Southern Algeria, nothing but black stones on red earth as far as the eye can see.



... and there is plenty more on our blog http://blog.riding2up.net

Here is my 2011 GS, my first new bike in many years! So far I love it and am in the process of setting it up to my liking.

A few more tweaks since purchase. Navi III on aTouratech riser low mount and had my Valentine One hardwired and mounted to a techmount mirror platform.

I loved my prior 2006 R12GS and kept it as light as I could. No cases, no case mounts and carbon fiber Remus exhaust. Doing the same with this beast----I want to keep it as lightweight as I can. Akra full Ti system is in my future....

Crikey Geoff - you sure do go through the bikes! Very nice latest purchase BTW ... check out my new (to me) ride below ... still a bit sad that the R1100GS purchase didn't work out ... oh well, these things happen for a reason.

Cheers mate ... Terry

New to me Adventure...

Picked it up Friday afternoon....2009 R1200 GS Adventure.

Rode it about 350 miles today....I tried to do a little of everything available locally.

Some interstate, some twisty two lane, some Forest Service Roads, a creek crossing and some mud!

Think I am going to like this bike!

I hear you......the PO didn't take as good care of it as I would have liked so I looked at it as a project to get it like-new again.

Now it's ready for abuse!

My old GS...

You think? That may be the understatement of the year.

Great looking bike. Enjoy!

By the way, how was the service from Adventure BMW during the purchasing process?
