    I wanted the increased range of the GSA and was all set after a test ride to plunk down the cash. Then on a whim took the GS out, and it felt like a sport bike after the GSA. I'm not going "round...

    I rode mine right up until the 30 day period drew near. It never got any better. A Russell replaced it, and made all the difference. Sargents aren't custom - just aftermarket, whereas Russells are...

    Cost of the Sargent vs the Russell isn't really an issue if you opt for the solo seat only. Only difference there is that Sargent paid shipping.

    I also started with a Sargent. A good bit better than stock, and good looking, but still not an all-day seat. Switched to Russell, and now I don't even bother to stand at traffic lights to give the...

    I've said it in other threads, but my 10 GS, no bags, moderate to heavy throttle on backroads - 51 mpg consistently. I'm 225 +.

    I'll be curious to see what you choose for an oil cooler guard. I've been considering one for my new GS too, but what I've seen might protect against big rocks, but would still let bugs through. ...

    Just to weigh in on the camhead buzziness issue - my 2010 GS has 6K miles - no buzziness anywhere in the rpm range I use - up to 6K rpm or so.

    I just put my Hippo Hands up for sale on the flea market. I had them on my R100RT. With my GS's built-in hand guards, heated grips and Gerbing Heated gloves, I don't need them anymore.

    After the bike started and was running I could hear a slight noise that i thought maybe had to do with some sort of starter clutch/release (I'm no expert). Not that the starter was still cranking,...

    The GS wind deflectors do a great job of keeping the wind off your hands. Some aftermarket makers of dirt bike accessories offer them too, but aesthetics may be an issue.

    If they still make "Hippo Hands", they used to work well for me. They're somewhat rigid, or at least enough to hold their shape and prevent contact with the controls. Also they have a slot for...

    An odd thing happened on the way home from picking up the new GS from the dealer. After christening the bike in a downpour and leaving it outside in a motel parking lot on a stormy night, the next...

    This brings up a good question: Just what IS the maintenance schedule? What are you supposed to do and when? My manual says virtually nothing on the subject. The old bikes at least had a page with...

    BMW's changes to 2010 GS engines must be really significant. Not only is there a boost in performance, but I'm getting 50-51. That's with mostly aggressive twisty riding and occasional blasts down...

    You'll love the GS. Some swear by the ESA, but unless you already alter your suspension settings frequently you probably won't use it once the novelty wears off. I opted to spend the $800 option...
