What have you done to your R1200GS today?

Can't believe this forum didn't have one of these threads!

Just a place to note down things you have done to your bike today. Always good to make dedicated threads of product reviews in the mods or accessories section though.


I put on some PR4 trails on my 2016 GS

Got some machineartmoto head covers and Wunderlich sidestand enlarger today...will hopefully put them on tonight and will make new threads.

Just fitted givi hand guards. Took approximately 3 minutes to install both.

Completed the 1st service again as my dealer stuffed it up :P
Can I ask how they stuffed it up especially since we bought from the same dealer within a day of each other. My 1st service seemed to be ok apart from the cost which seemed sky high.

Had the 600 mile service done to my new GSA. Also ordered a BMW "Exclusive" seat. These seats come standard on the Triple Black GS now. I sat on one for a while in the showroom while waiting for my bike to get serviced, and it was a distinct improvement over the standard seat. It looks very nice too.

I got home after a 3 day trip and started unloading my bike and found my right case was missing. It was a hard ride with lots of heavy wind, but the roads were okay. Not only did I lose my Touratech case, I figure I had at least $500 worth of tools and gear in it.

I didn't feel or hear anything, it's so darn baffeling. I had stopped for fuel about 100 miles before and checked all the straps, everything was in good shape at the time.

I'm going to back track tomorrow and hope I'm lucky. Now I need to come up with a safety system to make sure it doesn't happen again.

I am sorry to hear that you lost your side case. I hope when you back track you will find it all in one piece. Just glad nothing went wrong when you lost the side case, could have been worst.
