My 2007 1200 GS stripped down and ready to compete in the 2012 GS Trophy Qualifier. The olde girl got me into 3rd place and into the running for the finals in South America!!! Now just need everyone's vote at BMW Motorrad US Facebook page and I will be off to Argentina to thrash an F800 of a week. -- Andrew Lacy

Is that two cut off GS screens on top off each other? Would be the Givi set up but with far better looks. Always wanted to try that. How tall are you, seat height, and experience please?

I'm thinking about converting from 12GS to 12GSA - basically because of the larger tank, lights and crash-bars.

Now that you know - can you tell me how different it feels in terms of handling or any other practical information about differences in performance between the two?

Just wondering ... are those special R1200 graphics on the tank? Like the look and the "Adventure" added.

Some more of mine from a ride out yesterday. 100 mile loop Home > Clitheroe > Settle > Slaidbun > Home. The Forest of Bowland was stunning. Amazingly, I was overtaken fifteen miles from home by a guy riding the Fireblade I traded for this! Absolutely no regrets though and totally loving the big GSA. Just waiting for delivery of Kahedo / TT seats and a Nippy Norman's side stand extender next week
