Greetings and Salutations!

Hi guys, new to the forum and the R1200GSA, but long time Beemer rider (most recently a K1600GTL). I've always admired the adventure bikes, but being inseam challenged, I've always avoided them. One day getting an annual on the GTL, the dealer gave me a low suspension Triple Black R1200GSA to demo while I waited. His plan worked; I traded the GTL on the spot!

Anyhow, I got so much good information on the K1600 site, I went hunting for one for the GS, and here I am!

George

Hey George. You may recognize a few people from the K1600 site. As over there, mostly good folk willing to assist.

Welcome aboard.

BTW, were you at TTD in '15 (inaugural year)?

As I read about how many K1600, or touring bike, riders either add an R1200GS to their garage or just completely make the switch it is helping me make my decision on which beemer to get. I've pretty much decided on a GSA but as I read more and more it only solidifies that decision.

Turn Turn Turn

I'm sure after riding the GS through a few turns you realized the handling difference between the 1600 and GS makes the tight stuff fun again
