This motorcycle is a do-all, rugged and reliable ride
Speedometer cable broke at 13,000 miles.
Fiberglass gas tank pealed at 15,000, replaced under warranty with metal tank.
This is awesome motorcycle, and I realize that BMW has since refined the GS to an unbelievable level of excellence, that makes this original seem like a horse.
The motorcycle is an excellent touring bike for a single rider, and with a passenger.
I am a 6-3, 240-pound rider, and this bike is perfect for my size. I have added Corbin seat and foot-peg lowering kit for more leg room.
Fifth gear runs a little high; could use sixth gear or different gearing. Love the ABS brakes.
Excellent for all road surfaces and very rugged bike.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
