Even though I’m in love with my Multi and it almost completely satisfies my needs, I have an itch to get new bike. I have been looking into R1200GS for quite a while and always wondered what makes this bike so popular.
So I had to have one to see what it’s like. Test rides proved useless because it takes a while to understand a bike. For example, my Multi grew on me in about 2 weeks, it wasn’t love at first sight.
How can one get to ride GS on daily basis without taking the plunge on the purchase? That is right, trade with your buddy who wants to convert you to big BMW. And so I did I will probably ride GS for at least a week, this should give me plenty of time to understand the nature of it.
Based on my short experience with the bike (2 commutes so far) my impressions are far from positive. However I would like to reserve my judgement till I get more miles under my belt. I will keep you posted.
