Twist...I didn't realize you had a GS . 1200 right?

Maybe I can pick your brain re: tires, accessories, etc.

Nope. :nono: I ride the sherco almost everyday in the yard and the TYs will keep me busy during the cold months.
I really liked the RT I got from you years ago. I was pretty sure I'd get another BMW. This one will do better on gravel and it's a little bit lighter.

When I was younger, (before getting married and buying a house), I had one or two BMWs. I really liked them. Were such great long distance machines. I love that all their bikes come with heated grips!!!!

I wouldn't mind getting another, but they aren't cheap

Happy to discuss. I would consider my GS very well sorted - electrical power distribution, protection parts, luggage both hard cases and soft, and I've tried several different tires on it from road touring bias to knobbies. Give me a shout anytime.
