    Progressive International MC shows

    I know BMW is going to be at all the shows this year but I am wondering if they will be showing the water cooled boxer?
    Anyone know one way or the other?

    I was told by a local Dealership that BMW will have the new 1200 at the Toronto bike show next weekend. I would expect if it is here in the North, it will be at the U.S. shows.

    BMW had the liquid-cooled GS at the San Mateo show late last month.

    Yes, The R1200GS watercooled,was at the Atlanta show as well as the HP4 S1000RR. I'm not a GS fan,but this is a verry good looking GS. I spent four hours at the show and enjyed it quite a bit.

    I usually go to the Cleveland, OH show. Am thinking about trying Indy this year. Has anyone been to both that can give me a comparison? Is Indy a bigger show?

    This is the first year the show has been in Indy. It's never been closer than Chicago or Cleveland. Lucas Oil Stadium is a great venue. I'm anxious to see it for the first time.

    Looking forward to the NYC show, hoping the F800GT will be there. I went from a K1200RS to a K1200S to my current K1200GT and am thinking the lighter more nimble F800 would be more fun. My wife thought the more comfortable K12GT would help her ride more, but it turns out she just doesn't like to ride. Now I have a heavy GT..... Could be worse, I might have bought the K16 and had a payment to deal with!

    Yeah, I went through something similar. My wife said she'd never ride on a GSA. Well, she hasn't ridden much on the RT. If I get another BMW, it will be a GSA.

    I forget which topic I posted under, but....the Water Boxer GS was at the ATL show which was number one show of the season. The US distributor guy that I talked to was a really nice guy but had exactly no info on the bike, nor any brochures. Or any helpful info of any sort.

    Bike looked very, very interesting. I resisted the temptation to make some cracks about fuel strips, etc. Actually I did make a stab at a funny about the strips. I'll give that ole' TN boy credit: unlike me in my corporate life, he stuck to his script without the slightest hesitation.
