1200 GS Review

model year BMW GS 1200

Difference between previous / 2006 model Adventurer’s? A BMW source advises that BMW a few tweaks to the gearbox and engine equating to smoother gear reduction to gearbox noise other riders have on earlier pre 07 models. Initially by the prospect of saving a few Euros by for a nice used 2006 I’d spent a few months classifieds, BMW agents in my quest to the perfect touring 1200

Here’s what we’ve along the way

Pre 07 BMW‘s are fitted a brake servo which on being electronically convinced it’s happy to work time the bike is started. the rider decide to ride off this feat of electro-wizardry has performed to the satisfaction of the bikes – the brakes may decide not to that well! I’m that one of the warnings the bike is failing to stop at the next

All perfectly safe I’m – providing you follow the precisely.

BMW decided to remove the facility from 2007 year bikes. Apparently not really needed anymore!!


work with such and precision that the bike quicker than you can think, barely any front end dive. The way BMW‘s brake with the bike seemingly just down a little under braking is worth stopping for a coffee for just to experience.

Older pre-2007 GS 1200’s not brake fully without the running. When asking what they thought this, in a quest to sell bike? would happily that they always their engine before anywhere. sounds obvious it! after all what … attempt to ride such a expensive machine without the engine? Actually many do!

I guarantee that should you to use your GS for the purpose it was built, you will as well!

It’s what things we all do on motorbikes thinking. Subconsciously making decisions which go totally un ie, we get on the bike, lift the side and right the bike ready to Having parked on a slight – or not so slight! we instinctively the front brake to hold the steady.

Who always starts the engine or having stopped the bike for break, we then decide we prefer the look of parking a few (because we’re in Europe now :_) down the road. So we just a little further without the engine.

Finally, imagine the case scenario on that the world expedition, we need to get the transported by truck or train the bike to be wheeled up down a Again on older bikes, you probably want to have the running whereas lack of engine might just be the that you’re trying to it up the ramp in the first place!?

If you’re the proud owner of a model I’m sure of these things will be you too much trouble because what bikers do; we’re resourceful creatures. That’s why able to travel long at high speed on two wheels in rain still smile we stop for fuel and water out of our wallets instead of cash.

If you’re riding 1000 per year on sunny days for a fun out to the coast (and amazingly what a great many going GS riders do) then of the above will be barely If you’re riding 1000 every other day for weeks on end amazingly that’s what a many world going GS do) then you’ll certainly these things and probably be than happy to pay a few pounds for the improvements on the later 2007 onward.
