I have been shopping for a 1200 GS. It is hard to find a negitive about this bike. I was glad to read that the rider was able to feel comfortable off road so soon. The question I can not find an answer to is which options/ accesories make this bike.
I think you could spend 5K on extras. what are the options that are must have, and boy if you had the money, get this stuff on your list. what did this bike have on it? thanks for the article.

Well that would be at least one of your un-found negatives... the price.

It weighs like 600 pounds before any accessories are added.

Why did "Administrator" plant a 17 month-old article?

Computer has a timer, maybe? Gotta post something, even if it's old?

I believe they are dragging the old MO V1 articles into MO 2.0. Each time they do, it appears as a "new" item.

Interesting... I seem to have been reduced in rank from "Premium Founding Member" to "Founding Member" -- what gives?

My buddy with the 6 BMWs had an R1150GS. He sold it after a year and bought a plain jane R1100R and fitted it out for adventure touring. He says it's much better in tough going because it is so much lower than the GS. I believe him, having owned heavy high COG bikes myself.
