I took delivery of my R12GS yesterday. So far I've onlly about 150 miles
on the bike. The early verdict is that the GS has many more fun units/mile
than the RT I had previously. I *like* this bike!
It's not perfect, but then, what is? The nits I would pick are all small
and relativly unimportant. Well, mostly small and unimportant. The one
thing I *must* change is the tool kit, or should I say the lack of same.
The on bike tool kit consists of everything you need to
* adjust your front shock
* adjust the mirrors
That's it. There is not enough in there to pull a wheel, for example.
I've had to pull a wheel to get home in the past...
I guess I'll do the job in my garage, noting what tools I need, and then
buy what I need and add those to the existing tool kit. Or, given the
lack of room, add an aux tool kit. I've already added a bag to the empty
space under the rear rack where I store a patch kit, for example.
My 600 mile service isn't until Jul 1. Guess I'll have to ration the
miles for the next 2 weeks :-)
