MOTORESS women and motorcycles, motorcycling for women

The “BMW GS” concept has embodied riding pleasure and the desire for adventure for over 30 years. This applies especially to the GS motorcycles with the opposed-twin “boxer” engine. The “big GS” allows a motorcyclist to explore the most remote corners of the world – an idea that has already inspired numerous globetrotters to set off on their travels.  But the GS was and still is much more than this.

2012 or 2013 BMW R1200GS????????? Anything more on this out there?


A SoloMoto.es reader spied what appears to be an undisguised, liquid-cooled replacement for the BMW R1200GS testing on a Spanish highway. In addition to the new motor, it looks like the beak has been sharpened up, the paralever swingarm/drive shaft has been moved to the bike’s left side and the exhaust canister to the right. Why liquid-cooling when the rugged simplicity of the air-cooled boxer suited the GS so well?

Anyone have more info about this potential change for BMW and the 1200GS??????
