If this is the true to life gs, why is it standing upright? I would strongly request a "sleepy" gs demonstration to display contact points for the cooling system.
Wethead is water/glycol, and air cooled right, so hypothetically you ride, sumthing goes funky chicken, u drop it and blammo! A cracked rad does bmw have sum electronic system to isolate a cooling rad? Touratech inline bv $300.00

Thanks op for the copius amounts of pics

Somebody likes this!!

Plus those cross-spoke wheels. So, is this the ADV model without the optional racks and other goodies?

Not ADV, GS with optional BMW accessories.

Cheers for all the photos. Good stuff.

The look of the bike will most definitely divide folks. Makes me wonder if the spork face had anything to do with David Robb bailing..

I predict a Touratech radiator relocation/bypass kit will be available by 2014 and off backorder in 2015.

What? No Harley pics? Lol... BMW did the right thing by giving the GS a makeover and it looks like they did a good job of it. Be interesting to see how it rides and how much difference the extra 15 horsepower makes. Not like it needed it.They did finally put cruise control on it! Yah! If I had to be critical of anything, would be all the plastic sheit up front like others have said and the handguards hardly look like handguards anymore and the 2mm thick ''enduro bashplate''. Really?

Thanks very much for the pics!

OH MY GOD IT'S HIDEOUS!

I'm sure it'll grow on me, just like the 1100, 1150, and 1200's did.

I wish you would've had a better camera--it looks like only 10% of each photo is in focus.

I looked at the first couple shots and gave up. What were you taking them with, cell phone? You go to INTERMOT and don't take a nicer camera with you? Shame.

Thanks for posting the pics! I like it, visible screws and all. I'll bet it rides and handles like a dream.
