R1200GS article in Cycle Canada magazine


Cycle Canada magazine, renown for their accurate, unbiased, and well-written 
articles, has a 10-page article on the R1200GS in their Feb '05 issue. The 
article is a detailed write-up wrapping up about a year-long, 20,000 km 
evaluation of the machine. According to the article:

    o Smooth, powerful Boxer
    o Wonderfully versatile motorcycle

    o Needs a companion Adventure model with more fuel
      capacity, lower gearing
    o Optional luggage has insecure mounts

The article has a strongly worded closing: "There are a few flaws, yes, but 
overall we'd say this is the best motorcycle BMW has ever built." I would 
assume this excludes the newly released K1200S which has not been evaluated
