GS Rally
« on: November 17, 2016, 10:23:02 pm »
I see for 2017 BMW is introducing new trim and models, among other a GS Rally with enhanced off-road ability (apart from the 'interesting' colour scheme).  I found it on youtube but my fifties model year does not allow for imbedding and such - sorry.
I started biking as an under achiever and it went downhill from there...

I am a die-hard 1200GS owner and fan, but I battle to swallow a "rallye" label on a bike with panniers  :pot:
