My butt was itchy since I sold my lovely 2018 R1200RT 3 weeks ago and my wife demanded me to get another bike and get the hell out of the house!
So, as a gentleman husband I am trying to obey her demands.
Just this time I won't make the same mistake hopefully. I enrich the second hand BMW bike market just by myself alone in the last 5 years. So, this time I'll enjoy the fruits of my labor and found myself a nice 2015 GSA, I'll check tomorrow.
If it checks out that'll be my ride for a while.
Push button start, Standard suspension, BMW panniers, top case and a GPS... The only problem is that I hate that screaming blue color but I'll find a way to cover it up. Probably with a Wrap company that use a high quality 3M material.
That'll be enough for now.
I said many times before on these forums, I loved my last bike, an Alpine White 2018 R1200RT... Comfy, agile, powerful, luxurious with all the comforts and extras of today's technology allows to have on a bike.
But I was constantly in fear while I am riding that beauty. I was constantly paying extra attention not to scratch her body, saddlebags etc. For example if I was carrying handful stuff inside my garage I always felt that I need to give a wide berth to go around that bike. I rather scratch the car's paint than RT's.
Riding 2018 White RT always felt like if I was driving a sporty model of Mercedes or BMW compared to riding a GSA which feels like riding a Jeep or a Hummer.
You know what I mean?
For example while I was cruising down on a freeway at 70mph if a rock hits one of my saddlebags;
- On RT I think " Oh God darn it !!!" and my heart sinks...
- On GSA all I say "Yeeee hawww" and feel like "I am a cowboy on a steel horse I ride..."
Seriously, fingers crossed as tonight. Tomorrow I'll update this thread!
Hopefully with a good news!
Ride safe all,
