13 on up Model GS

I would push for a 14 model on up . The WC engine needs valve checks half as often and that sort of thing helps ease maintenance cost. I have a 17 model with premium package and exclusive package...

Me too. I got one free on my 16 RS and traded the bike less the Nav V on my new R 1200 GS . I like the Nav V better than the older Garmin (also a BMW model) which I used for a decade complete with...

Base Camp is a lot of things . Intuitive not so much.

Interesting responses to the thread and I will have to go along with those who think it is not the most intuitive software and likely impossible to get a result without some sort of tutorial help . ...

Thanks for the correction

You got it right but my information was not.

Clearwater rep stated that if I added the EZ can system to my Clearwater lights the lights would not be dimmable. Apparently that was not correct....

iPhone 6, Sena 10, Nav V

The best I can tell the pairing must be set "either , or " for a seamless performance with the Garmins.

More Fragile goodies only makes a crash expensive

I like the new TFT look but doubt if I will trade up just to get one. The newest Nav VI on the other hand might be worth selling mine V and upgrading as I have read the screen is far more readable in...

I would think the Rally is the same as the Exclusive and while I don't think the graphic is nearly as "mickey mouse " as the more cartoony on the Rally, I have thought about removing it when I change...
