I've been hanging around the full size truck thread for a while, but will now be spending some time here too. I just took delivery on a 2012 R1200GS Rallye. I was initially interested in a GS Adventure, but the seat height is just a tad too high. Then, I saw my local BMW Motorad dealer's new R1200GS Rallye demonstrator and it was love at first sight. So, I put a deposit on the next one in the que and it finally came in last Saturday. I included in the contract the GSA aluminum panniers and top case, GSA windscreen, GSA aluminum head protectors, crash bar, led auxillary lights, GPS, Akrapovic silencer and an aftermarket skid plate. When it's done, hopefully within a week, it will be a cross between a GS Adventure and a regular GS with the great looking Rallye paint job and red frame. I'll post pictures when it is ready.
The bike is lots fun to ride. It is very responsive and handles great for such a large and heavy bike, and it has huge amounts of torque. The brakes are a little touchy, but I will get used to them. The BMW turn signal switches will take some getting used to as well. Overall, I am very pleased and look forward to racking up the miles on it.
