Nice ride!

Watch the Heidenaus I the wet... From personal experience - I took my rear off after 3000 kays

Funny...I thought exactly the same thing. Not to knock someone elses bike (especially a 30th anniversary...I have one!) but could this machine be any more offroad protected? And for what...? Afraid of banging it against fire hydrants or mailboxes in town? LOL. Just kidding...I think.

My new 2012 GS

I picked up my new 2012 GS last week. It has ABS, ESA, OBC, TPM options. No spoked wheels or TC. I am really liking this bike so far. I looked at the GS, Tenere, Stelvio, and Multistrada. All great bikes, but the GS worked best for me.



One thing I don't like - After I bought the bike, I found out that the accessory port will not work with my heated gear or my battery tender. I need to figure out how to install a dedicated accessory outlet connected straight to the battery.

I also need some crash bars. I am not sure which style to get.

Nice bike!

I have similar colour '08 version with black Adv spokes, really goes with gray metallic.

You can fit a full size cigarette lighter and connect to the battery via a fuse, no probs.

Original BMW engine bar provides adequate protection. Hope this helps.

I've also fitted Adv screen (taller) and winglets. Recommend it.

Tell me about the radio and the fork protectors. It is a sweet looking well farkled bike.
I want the radio and have already planned on fork protectors before my Alaska NWT trip this summer.

Thanks,

Lewis

Snow makes everything fun, or when you are caught on an evening commute with dropping temps and cars playing bumper boats and going over jersey walls, very interesting:
