An impressive old motorcycle
Only replaced the rear brake pads.
I bought this bike when it had 100,000 Kms on the clock. I have done another 20,000 kms and it has been a dream.
No problems, it will still do 200 km/hr and handles really well at any speed.
It is my first BMW and first big-bore bike. Heavy when parking and you need to be careful as it is a beast, but once underway it is light and very torquey.
I have been thinking of buying a 1200 GS, but need to convince myself why? I don't need to go faster, or need a bike that handles better. The 30kgs lighter is probably the only reason, but it is a big cost if just for that.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
