Just found this forum. Haven’t looked around it yet. Friday I bought my first Adventure bike, a 2014 R1200GS. I live near Dallas TX so this Saturday I fly out to California to pick it up and ride it back to Texas. I’m excited. Owned a Harley since 2011. Wanted something that I could ride down the roads I would never go down w the Harley. Thought about just going cheap and buying a VStrom or Africa Twin but the more I read and watched about the BWMs , and after test riding one, I knew I’d be spending a few extra bucks and get the bike everyone compares themselves too.

I bought a 2014 GS 3 years ago in Arizona. Flew in from California, did the paperwork and road it home. I immediatly bought a new windshied as stock buffeting was a pain on the way home. It has 70K miles now and still going strong!
