Sweet upgrade, Marc. I guess that's what people mean when they go on and on about how expensive BMW service is. :lol:

I've always liked that color, but Scratch is right. Way too clean.
If it weren't for the therapeutic properties of the occasional off-camber decreasing radius downhill right-hander I'd almost certainly go completely sane.

Nice!  Now it's time to go get it dirty.

I'm really worried because I'll be back in a week for the 600 mile initial service. There was a really nice 1200 sitting close by and I'm afraid if I sit on it next week it might try to follow me home too...

Congrats.  Is there much of a power difference between that and the F700GS?

So does it ride better after the service?  :)

I heard with the new BMW service practices, it comes out feeling like a whole new machine. That's service, my friend.

It's the exact same engine, just geared differently and I can tell you the front wheel does come up off the ground now.   :o
