Yes, now that you mention it I think that's true. Well, maybe the bikes are getting here sooner than we expected or perhaps they are for some other reason....journalists?

This looks more like Herbie. The other could have been Frank (from the factory) on the second bike

Have a look at

There are some great pics and videos of the Laos (Asia) and the New Zealand (Oceania) legs. After that South Africa and then the States. It ends with the Europe leg back in Germany

Yeap. They definitely cheat.

They do the same trick with the current oilheads and the older airheads.

Cheaters I tell ya.

You beat me to it. ;) (THIS TIME)

Anyway, since I am nut enough to DOWNLOAD all these in full 1080p (or higherst I find), my 12GS 13 data folder has grown huge already. Only the two videos above are 445MB.

Damn... I need to buy the thing, it might be cheaper in the long run.

Configuration?

Better delivery than mine.
Mine is manufactured week 22 of 2015 and taking delivery week 24.
(will probably have some updates too)
I am taking the fullest possible package with any extra... extras possible (except when Touratech or Wunderlich has a better version).

After two bought-new GSes, I now know how it affects resale to NOT order some possible factory extras. I still remember people that chose 1200GS without ABS because there was still a debate about its usefulness (and of course they were too cool to let the system do "their" job - side-note, ABS has saved my life at least once). I wonder how easily they sold theirs (if they did). I did almost the same mistake (to a lesser extend) by not taking the new-then ESA (because "that knob under the seat is good enough and lighter"). At least I got ASC.

Anyway... only 45 days for you man. I envy you.

Anyone know if the LCD display is configured in different European languages for their target market or is it just in English?

I don't know, but I can contribute the following.
If you see photos, you will see that it is not a full "pixel panel" screen (like a computer monitor or like -I think- 1600GT), but has what I believe is called segment LCD, that can form only specific characters, something like old LCD wrist watches (or the current GS).
I am 100% sure that they don't have different character sets implemented, depending on where they plan to sell.
I am 100% sure that like current GS, it is possible to configure (through software) minor things like if clock will be 12-hour or 24-hour, if trip counters are in miles or kilometers, temperature in Celsius or Fahrenheit and such.

2015 ?

ASC, ESA, computer, all lights led, GPS ready, daylights, alarm, chrome exhaust, alarm, crash bars, set of vario cases, cruise control, heated handgrips, hand protectors

This is the "expected config for norwegian market" minus tire pressure control.
As far as I talked to the dealer, each dealership around here got a monthly "manufacturing quota". Within the monthly quota they can order a bike of a specific config to be built. I placed the order mid-january when they still had one bike available for march. So it's not like the system in US (from what I've seen in other peoples posts) where the dealer first gets a batch of preconfigured motorcycles.

And one more cool thing is that norwegian law requires 5 years of warranty, so after the factory warranty runs out all norwegian dealerships are obliged to provide additional years :)
