BMW R1200 GS!

Posted on Sunday, January 18th, 2004

Dave!Speaking of BMW Motorcycles... OneWheelDrive is reporting that their latest on-road/off-road dual-sport, the R1200 GS, is going to be released in Europe on March 13. This looks like a sweet machine, that's probably considerably more comfortable for touring jaunts than my little F650 GS. To top it all off, it looks damn cool...

Sigh. I'd be happy if I could just ride mine.

    Still waiting for some real (independent) test results of the new GS. I’m a big fan of the GS line, and this one seems to have some genuine new inovation but I think that with all the new features there will be a lot of bugs to work out. As much as I am tempted to get one I don’t want to be a gunea pig.

    It is risky when you buy the latest and greatest… but I’d probably be willing to take that risk with BMW than with other brands. Though you are not always safe with a Beemer… the surging and stalling issue with the F650-GS is apparently still plaguing even current models (not mine, thankfully). Boy this new one sure looks good though!

    I have ordered one and so I hope that there will not be too many bugs in the new systems.

    I have located one item that may be of interest.

    I’m very happy with my F650-GS right now, but when I see the R1200 I’m a little envious of anybody getting one!
