BMW R1200 GS Adventure "30 Years Anniversary"

I shall be getting this exact bike next week at BMW Auto Bavaria Glenmarie..
It's BMW R1200 GS Adventure "30 Years Anniversary"

'BMW' = It's BMW, of course.. don't tell me you do not know what it means.. LoL

'R' = Boxer Engine with DOHC (2010 engine), Shaft Driven..

'1200' = 1,200 cc of engine capacity (1,170cc to be exact)

'GS' = Gelände / Straße (it's German for off-road / road)

'Adventure' = Taller seats, Taller Suspensions, Bigger Fuel Tank (33-liters), Bigger Bash Plate, Tank Guards, Engine Guards, Engine Head Guards, Rear Exhaust Guards, HID Fog Lamp, Bigger Windshield, Multi-spoke rims, etc..

'30 Years Anniversary' = it is Limited Edition.. It's been 30 years since BMW introduced a radical new motorcycle to the public (1980)..  The original BMW R80 GS received a "love it/hate it" reaction from everyone who laid eyes on it, and not a single person thought the concept would succeed.
But here we are, 30 years later and the GS-series is not only one of BMW's best-selling models, it has spawned an entire new motorcycle segment called "Adventure Touring".. it comes with the special color scheme and sexy red seat – of the original R80... 

(this video is not mine, it's taken from youtube and it is the exact bike i'm getting next week.. i just wanna show you an example of this great masterpiece)

  1. Hi there!
    CONGRATULATIONS for buying the best bike around!!
    I also got mine 2011 GS 1200 Adv 30 year a couple of months ago and I´m so happy with it. But in Sweden the winter is so cold and now I have to wait and dream on until april or may. I also use the winter time to buy all the best stuff from Garmin (BMW Navigator 4) Touratech (Zega Pro cases) and Wunderlich. This is a keeper, so I´ll make it complete!
    I´ll send you some pics when it´s ready.

    I can also tell you that I had a GS 1150 and a GS 1150 Adventure before this one, made all Europe from North Cape to Gibraltar and Morocco, I loved them! And this one is the best ever!

    Ride safe and good luck with the new bike!
