Austin, Texas

Just purchased a 2012 R1200GS Adventure over the 4th of July weekend and got to ride it from Utah, through Colorado and New Mexico, back to Texas. Coming from an F650GS she rides like a Cadillac on the highway and I'm still getting used to handling her off the pavement. Always looking for back road adventures around central Texas and an excuse to go Moto-camping. Still learning a lot about this bike but so far I absolutely love it.

Peace,

Bill

I've been super impressed with my R1200GS on the highway too, super stable.

I was just out in hill country on mine. Youre going to have a blast soon as it cools off a little.
