Holy smoke (only expressive phrase I can think of at the moment) those folks over on the GS board are so excited about this new Adventure GS! And, for you guys on this thread, I can feel it; that new GS is just spectacular! Looks like more than a few will be trading their relatively new 12GS's on this new bike. And the thread went on for six pages - I read every post this morning. I love it when a group of motorcylist can get this excited about a new dream machine coming down the pike.
I'll bet as soon as we get the same range of hi-viz phots of the new GT we will run out of bandwidth on this little forum; maybe eclispsing the number of pictures and posts on the GS board this morning.
One of the reasons I went down the list of posts was to see if there was anything regarding a new brake system on this very new BMW motorcycle. Other than the fact that abs is an option, like it is for the slant-fours, there didn't seem to be anything suggesting a change to a new, non-servo abs brake system on the GS Adventure.
There are two rumors that I've floated on this forum that, frankly, I'm beginning to doubt. The first is the new brake system rumor. We'll see on that one. The other is a different tranny for the new GT. The tranny rumor comes from the dealer ranks; and sure, they'd like to see a smoother shifting tranny for the GT, but I'm betting now, BMW just massages the current one in the K-R and K-S. That might be good for us K-R and K-S riders since, maybe, any "improvement" can be adopted.
Hey, folks, thanks for sticking with us during the "nothing-out-there" phase for the new GT; and watch out for this forum to literally explode when the "official" photos streak across your screen!
