2015 BMW R1200GSA - Born 8-25-2014

So I had placed an order for a GSA a month or so ago and Yesterday was production day for my new 2015. My dealer informed me today via e-mail my bike has left the factory in Berlin and is starting its trip to Florida.

Oh I ordered it in white (plan is to try some wrap) with the tech and touring pkg as well as keyless and gear shift pro and somehow it ended up with a chrome pipe on the build sheet. No worries maybe I'll like the chrome or get an Akro.

Still contemplating bags and will be doing a good bit of pavement riding to start with but plan on getting a set of TKC80's next and trying the beast off road. I current ride a Yamaha WR250R with knobs and a Yamaha FZ-09.





Look forward to updating this thread with info on the GS and rides I take with it.
I'd like to do some trips and camping with it and I've heard of a route in the middle of the country that runs from coast to coast and is mostly dirt.

That Yam looks like it's violating the law just sitting there!

Front reflectors are missing.

The FZ-09 looks like this in the rear now.


I've never had any trouble running my bikes clean like this. The turn signals are integrated into the taillight same is the case on the WR250R which the front signals are in the Zeta hand guards. I suppose in some states or countries reflectors are mandatory, thankfully not in Florida.

We must have sister bikes as I have a white one arriving next week here in England where I was just told it's enroute where I'm set to take delivery on the 6th.

Nice color choice and congrats on the new bike. Mine has a long boat ride ahead of it and I believe the euro models come with the nice turn signals. But close enough to the same.
