I like the black color and tinted screen, especially with the black Globescouts. Mine will be a street queen so I don't need all of the crash bars. Yours is kitted for the apocalypse, awesome

Well, my 2013 spec had some issues.....1. Gear box was terrible, could not get neutral, 1,2 & 3 very noisy when shifting, and when I finally managed to get neutral, the bike would jump forward for about 5sec when engaging 1st, 2. The clutch also would vary from time to time when pulling away, 3. Had a lot vibration on the diff, 4. The front wheel also had a terrible vibration or more like a instability on about 80km/h when closing the throttle.

With the new bike I have not experience any of these issues. This is 1200GS no 5 for me, the the best one yet!

Does that mean BMW bought your bike and gave you a new one?

Got caught by our local Hwy 94 photo guy last Sunday. Thought the pic was interesting since I'm in a shadow with the Denali M1 lights on. Damn things are pretty bright. Yes, typical SoCal beautiful February weather. Sorry about you guys that actually get a winter.

When I glanced at the first line I thought for a second you got caught by the CHP!! And from your lean angle they might just have done that!!!

Very nice photo! You should have the guy print it at 10X14, then frame it!!

I think that's a beauty - no need to over-farklized it into a robo-bike IMHO
