Break.

On the TFT screen of my R1250GS there is something called 'Break'. Haven't a clue what it is. The figure after it often shows '52'. Is that minutes, hours, years, miles, kilometres?

An explanation would be much appreciated.

The R1250GSA manual page 117 says that is related to the trip computer:

Break
Journey
Current (TRIP 1)
Av. spee.
Av. consump.

I'm guessing it's minutes as speed, distance, MPG make no sense for a break, and those are what's usually spit from onboard computers.

See the snapshot below from your manual (R1250GSA manufactured after March 2019):

If you need an electronic copy of your manual, here's a link to owners manuals section of BMW site:

BMW Motorrad International

If you have your VIN you can be precise about which manual to get. For GS, there's an 0J91 (HP model) and 0J93. For the GSA, there's 0J51 (HP) and 0J53. Then for each of there's a manual for bikes manufactured Aug and Sep 2018 onwards and for bikes manufactured Mar 2019 onwards. All that info is available in your VIN. Here's a decoder that will tell you manufacture date.

Break means time your bike is inactive, not in use. I'm not sure why we need to know this. Seems kind of ridiculous to let us know how long its been since we rode the bike.

That makes sense! Explains why the figure (presumably minutes) doesn't change when on the move. I agree it's pretty pointless. Just shows how much time has been wasted drinking coffee rather than riding!!!!! Better if it could set so that it would tell you when to have a break.

Compared to the old display the TFT screen doesn't show - instant fuel consumption, today's date and only has one trip meter (which fortunately will, if chosen, automatically reset each day).

My 2018 has 2 trip meters. You might check under settings and see if trip 2 has been turned off.

My mistake! Yes it has two trip meters. My non TFT R1200GS,in effect, had two trip meters plus the automatic trip.

I think break means how many miles you go before you pull over for a “break”. I have the same thing on the Garmin.
