Just seen the new R1200GS being prepared for the press launch in SA. Managed one pic before I was stopped! Garden Route.

This is an international launch.

There will be another local launch in March.

Perfect area to launch such a bike. DS Heaven.

Now we have to duck and dive on the Oubaai road again for the next few days to avoid the crazy journos. Trailrider do you need someone for a second opinion? GS EXPERIENCED!

Ek hou van jou spy shot tjom icon_thumleft

(Nota:Ek is n redelike groot BMW fan (reliability en dealer support) maar hierdie bikes lyk vir my vreeslik baie na iets wat ek nie op n grondpad wil vat nie.  Miskien lyk hulle in lewende lywe en met nobblies bietjie beter - wel, ek hoop so..)
