I am thinking of getting a new GS in the next 3 - 4 months, and have some questions.
I can afford the GS but not the Adventure. What am I giving up, besides the larger gas tank? I do some off road but it is mainly dirt roads and not that often.
Have any of you heard of reliability problems in newer BMW's? I have a friend who got a R1200GS about a year ago and has had problems with the shaft drive and something else that I can't remember; the dealer has worked on it but has not been able to fix it. I have heard of other cases, but nothing specific.
I am planning on getting the ESA and heated hand grips. what other options have you gotten that you really like or thought that they were a waste of money. I know that there are packages and I may not have complete control over what options I want.
What type of bags did you get with your GS and why?
Thanks in advance.
