    I use ram mounts on rear luggage rack (backward facing) and the engine guard (front facing)..I rarely use the go pro but when I have both locations provide great sound and picture and vibration free

    my name is FADI

    i bought a R1200 GS ADVENTURE 2015 model since few month, now it is up to 1200 km , i have done the first 1000 km service 1 week ago.
    Something that's troubled me since getting my bike is that the shifting doesn't seem as smooth as I would expect. When I shift into first from neutral, the whole bike shudders and there is a very loud CLUNK sound. Shifting into second is likewise balky, i never expect to have such bad noise, when i show my friend that have Kawasaki motorcycle he was surprised that his own is very smooth company to my latest motorcycle.
    The other gears seem to be fine, and shifting 3-6 is smooth and what I would expect from a bike of this caliber.

    Anyone else experience this? Is this normal for these bikes? Or is a trip back to the dealership in order?

    plz sir , i will be fully thanks if you can helping me solving this problem.

    Here are a few pics of my stock seat. Before I bought the bike, it was recovered, and some thin foam added I think. So, very little wear at all. One mark where a shovel wooden handle of a rake laying against it while stored. Hard to see, and may come out with some use.
