    R1200GS test ride video clip

    Here's a clip from swedish tv of a review and test ride of the new GS. Lots of nice footage of the bike in action. Found in another forum.

    Question Video clip - knary

    I don't know why, but the video clip won't run on my 'puter;
    all I get is the full-page warning like the one you get that says
    "couldn't find server," etc.

    After seeing the clip with a rider on the bike and the bike in motion, I finally think the design makes sense. Like the F650CS and the original Suzuki Katanas, I think this motorcycle was designed to have someone sitting on it. Alone, it looks disjointed and overly busy. With a rider on it, a lot of the fiddly bits that distract the eye seem to go away, leaving the rider, the back seat, the colored part of the bike and the tank side panels as the major design elements.

    Strange, because looking at the bike sans rider, I thought it looked like there were just too many parts hanging out there.

    Totally stoked and waiting for May.

    Some bikes. Some with motors, some without.
