Congrats on the new machine! I picked up my blue one today and while there saw a white one right next to mine. I was surprised how good it looks...they also had a green one back in the maintenance area being assembled and that looked great also.

I used to ride a Honda that was nice and smooth, but this bike is a monster. Felt great on the way home.

^^^ Love the white.

So, what's the story with going from R1200 to R1200? Looks pretty cool.

Thanks Vector, I wasn't real big on the blue so just wanted something a little different, so went back to the old school R1200 logo.

2014 r1200gsaw

Last summer, Engle Motors in Kansas City started a list for the 2014 R1200GSA. I added my name to the list as the second name. Fortunately,#1 cancelled and I purchased this bike on Saturday. I've rode by 2004 GS 112,000 miles with two trips to Inuvik and Alaska. Combined with my other two BMWs, I ridden a combined 430,000 miles on them and they are still running strong, burning no oil, and have had no drive problems. I'm hoping the new 2014 is as reliable.

After 39 years of street riding, I finally broke down and purchased the GPS. The selling point wasn't the navigation. I've travelling over 30,000 miles of dirt on my GS and have never been lost. Temporarily misoriented...maybe. I enjoy travelling with maps. I bought it because it's wired to the bike and is an information system with live weather radar. It's also has a touchscreen and maps detailed to include all the trails.

This bike also needs additional protection that should be standard on any GS. There is no protection on the two radiators (see photo). I purchased a pair of radiator guards from Tourtech. The front cover on the headlight is plastic. However, it's not shatterproof and cannot be purchased separately from the complete $1500 headlight assembly. I purchased the Tourtech headlight guard. The side stand is also too narrow for parking in dirt. I purchased a Tourtech flatfoot. I also don't care for trunks and prefer to strap on waterproof bags. However, the mount is narrow and needs an additional flat surface. To date, nobody makes one. I'm sure I will be buying this from Tourtech as soon as its available. The tool kit is pathetic. I purchased the ADV Design kit. Very good quality with enough tools to disassemble the bike. http://www.advdesigns.com/ulcobmwr1gsg.html. All of the new GSAW are coming to the states loaded. However, side bags are an extra $1000. I also purchased the small tank bag for my maps, bag liners by RKA, and a pair of bluetooth headsets.

What is very good is the front and rear adjustment on the front seat. I have a 34 inseam. On low, my feet are flat on the floor and my knees are even slightly bent. Very comfortable.

Manhattan or Manhattan

Now of course Manhattan, likely the most famous of New York City's boroughs, OR, Manhattan, KS?

I just recently purchased the 2014 WCGS with Nav 5, installed the TT panniers, but was a bit stymied by your NAV 5 weather comment. In addition to the NAV 5 I also have the Garmin 478 plus GXM30 with a subscription to XM's 'Master Mariner' weather pkg, which includes NEXRAD radar and a host of other 'stuff' for meteorologists.

What weather are you speaking about on the Nav 5? Good luck with your new ADV.
