Of course. That's the only valid way of getting to know a bike.

The new GS. I should have taken it from the other side to show the exhaust, force of habit taking it from the left.

I think this is what he meant because he said visibility (so I take it he means during the day). So it is like the photo.

Well I know the problem: You should take at least five photos.
1) From other side.
2) From front.
3) From back.
4) From on-seat.
5) The one you took.

Then you can go wild with angles, with the center stand, with you on and someone else ste... erm... taking photo with your camera etc.

That looks like Thunder Grey, same as RichBMW, right? Nice. I think I am beginning to like the Thunder Grey more tan the Red.

I wonder how it would look with spoke wheels.
