    I'm not tall of stature (5' 9" w/30" inseam), but I always found the RS cramped my legs a bit, even with the seat in the medium position. The GS is very comfortable and roomy feeling for my legs,...

    Sticky: GS to S Conversion

    Hey bluehole. Thanks man. Sorry to leave you 1 down on RS's. Now categorically my new bike is not a hexhead but a wethead, and I've already posted a picture over there. The wetheads post-a-pic thread...

    Go to Jim Von Baden's R1200 wethead page and find the link to wethead service schedule.

    I've never seen any of his maintenance videos. Are they good?

    They list service schedules for "BMW R1200GS (2010-later)". Do those apply equally to the wetheads? I didn't see anything about coolant checks/changes.

    Hi guys. I traded in my '95 RS for a lightly used '13 GS today. It's been fun jousting with the S riders, but I guess this is my final oilhead picture posting. Best to all of you.

    Do you suppose there will be unusually good deals on 2014 RTs once they are fixed? I am planning to buy a GS next spring (or Super Tenere) but a really good deal on an RT would get my attention.

    My next motorcycle purchase will be either a BMW R1200GS wethead or a Yamaha Super Tenere ES. Stories like this keep the Yamaha a close 2nd and may push it to the top of the list when the time comes.
