I'm 56 and the 09 GS is my second BMW the first was a 06 RT, started riding in 65 and was without a bike while my kids were growing up....that does not include the LEO motorcycle I was riding....

I have owned 20 bikes and the GS is by far the best of the lot...mostly jap bikes and 1 HD.....but the wife did love the Ultra I had..

unless something really great comes along the GS is a keeper....

At 50, the 1200GS was a cheaper midlife crisis than a Porsche. Even though I love the ride, the Porsche may still be on the table anyway for the night on the town routine with the wife ....... What a wonderful problem to have.

47 here physically. Mentally I think in the neighborhood of late 20's.

Will give up my 1100 when they pry it from my cold dead fingers. Wait a minute. Had several chillier days where they met that description. Or if someone offers me a rediculous amount of cash for her. It's the best year of the 1100's.

I do hear an 1150 calling my name but still faint, haven't found the next one yet.

A 1200 will be in the garage at retirement time. Not that far away thank goodness. Unless I find that magic '06 1150 GSA.

2011 GSA

3rd GS and after trying other models in between I will not be switching anytime in the near future. This is hands down the best motorcycle I have ever owned

GSA Age?

Only 66 here, heading down to explore Chile and Argentina solo on my 2002 1150GSA "HighHorse" next month.

Ride while you can, cause when you can't... sucks!

1st GS

67 here. Sold my Harley Street Glide and bought a 2011 GS in April of this year. I've logged over 16,000 miles since. I'm working on improving my off-road skills riding a lot of gravel roads here in Missouri. Had a chance to ride the Burr Trail in Utah this year. I'm getting better at it.
