I will be looking at getting a used GS. I have a friend who owns an exotic car and motorcycle shop who can find what I am looking for. I won't be pulling the trigger on it until net year sometime, but I need to get him a list of what I want. I know I want the lowered suspension, liquid cooling, and luggage, but beyond that, I need some advice from owners who know what to look for and what to avoid. I am thinking 2014 and newer, but that might drive the price up...well, it is a BMW after all. My wife currently has an R1200 R and we both love it. Are the spoke tires on the GS what I call "fake" spokes, meaning you still run tubeless tires in them. My off-roading will most likely be limited to fire roads and some on the beach,as I live on the Texas coast. I can't wait to see what you all come up with and what items I did not even consider. I currently ride a Triumph Street Triple and a Harley Fat Bob which is going up for sale. The GS will be added to the fleet so we will have 3 bikes between us. I have had some great advice on this forum so far, looking forward to more of the same. Also, and I know this is a BMW biased group, but I had a chance to ride a Triumph Tiger XC on the Blue Ridge Parkway this summer. I loved it . That's what got me thinking about an ADV style bike, but geared more toward touring with some off road abilities. No plans to do anything extreme, so the GSA is not the direction I am headed, just the standard model. How do you think the GS is better or worse than the Tiger? Did I say thanks in advance yet?
