First Ride R1200S

Postby dave the german » Thu Apr 18, 2019 9:05 am

Well, first ride after mine was disembowelled and had the organ transplants.
Just short of 400 miles down to Williams BMW and back. Unfortunately a lot of motorway miles but the bike feels good and sooo much smoother (maybe thats down to now having a straight con rod and valves not bouncing!!).
Need to look at getting something done with the seat though. Got some prices to put my GS in and get a new one..mmmm. Not sure about that yet

That is not a first ride Dave. no matter how you garnish it.

Right having got that technicality corrected,... I hope you enjoyed it immensely.
