Oh how I love this comp. Always rode, and it seems now again, will ride the 'underdog' engine. The excuses, when you meet up on a twisty road, afterwards from the (in this case) EXp rider are so amusing every time

Indeed.

Also where this comes from? It's all Triumph logo and sh*t. Maybe it's what Triumph themselves supposedly measured? (I wonder when...)
The photo seems to come from late Kevin's site. From the forum possibly?

Pure porn indeed This is where I will be in September on mine. A 2 week tour of Spain from UK through France. Pyrenees, Picos de Europa, Granada, Almeria and Murcia (the region shown in this clip).

However, I STILL HAVE 3 WEEKS TO WAIT BEFORE I GET IT

That's the old (air cooled) engine. It's from the Explorer launching event, several years ago.

Had a nice morning at North Oxford BMW, staff were well organized and had plenty of time to answer questions and queries 2

Always a pleasure to deal with.









Great looking bike, BMW have done a super job.

Rider magazine has a nice writeup in their latest edition (April '13....which is always comical given it's just now March......). They said they'll be doing a "full review" shortly. Net-net on the event was the usual gushing over the locale, the bikes, etc. They have to keep the event sponsor happy so they get invited to the next one right?

Great looking bike, BMW have done a super job.
Thanks for posting up pics of bikes ready for sale!

One question. In the pic above, the view straight on of the bike on the left makes it look much wider than I remember my old '07 GS being. Do the new radiators and shrouds really make it that wide, or is it just the angle that the picture was taken? It seems the rad shrouds are nearly as wide as the panniers......

It looks wider but feels narow.


I think the look is more from how narrow the seat area is.


They are a bit wider right were the goofy radiator plastic is compared to a 2012 GS, but they are not nearly as bulbous as a GSA is in the same place.


When sitting on them, even for a short legged guy like me, the narrow seat makes the bike feel better when stopped, at a light for example, than the 2012 GS does.


All that said I don't like the new look at all. But beauty, eye of beholder, or some such.

Thanks for that.

Note that I'm not saying it's a bad thing. Better weather protection is always welcome on those cold wet days.
