I kinda like the looks of the new BMW GS.

It may be time to trade in the old GS.

Agreed, a fine looking bike. Almost as good as my Scrambler :thumb

What model is that? It doesn't show up on the BMW website in Oz.

would probably cost as much to farkle it out as it did to buy it..already I can see it need handlebar risers, engine protection, skid pan and possible sub frame reinforcement...other than that, I likes it..what is the seat height?

Indeed! Found it!

But ours comes with crappy wheels, not those lovely spoked numbers.

The Oz version. I presume the spoked wheels in your pics are a mega-dollar option here.

It's the only BMW that I really liked was the one that looked like a bug ,
the one that was in a Bond 007 movie..

Well, it doesn't look pre-crashed like the other GS models, so there's that.
