    Just ordered a new GSA

    It's time to experience purchasing and owning a brand-new motorcycle for the first time.

    I've placed my order for a 2012 R1200GSA, "Triple Black", with virtually every option. The Triple Black GSA will look great parked in the garage next to the all-white RTP.

    It will take a couple of weeks for the local dealer to obtain what I want, and you can bet I'll post pictures when the time comes!

    No grey area with you then is there. Congrats on the expected addition to your stable.

    I can't wait to retire and have a fixed income. The one I have now is always broke.

    I suppose I'd have a grey area if the two ever crashed into each other...

    rdalland, I like it your correction BUT, leaning it over in a corner implies movement and use, you could park a muddy bike. Either way our heads were in the same place.

    Congratulations on your new GSA purchase. I hope you like yours as well as I like mine. After three years, I still love that bike. BUT! It ain't triple black. So all I can say is .... I'm jealous. Cheers!

    Just got a call from the dealer - they're gonna take $500 from me as a deposit to put my name on a bike on the assembly line in Berlin that will come to me with all of the options I want. It will take around two months for the bike to get built and shipped, but I'm sure it will be well worth the wait!
