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....

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?

Here's my GS. It's new, it's clean and it's box stock. But I guarantee that it will look different a year from now!
