And this time around it’s not just any motorcycle: it’s the all-new from-the-wheels-up BMW R1200GS LC, marking a special event in my calendar! I enjoyed riding the previous 1200GS’s but preferred my 800GS until I assisted at the launch of the new BMW R1200GS.
I was thoroughly impressed by the bike, in terms of everything. It presented a lean, manoeuvrable machine with a smoother drivetrain. Sold. (After only one day of some tarmac and gravel passes).
Poor John Carr, from Donford Motorrad. I bombarded him with phone calls every day for a week – to the point where he delivered the bike a day earlier!
