Service intervals

This sucks. Same service intervals? COME ON! And also the official reply about liquid cooling malfunction... not cool. This is where I would expect the GS to be one of a kind. (and us having the air cooled would more easily make the move)

Adventure variant

I'd be amazed if the Adventure takes another year. Look at the photos.. there's one in your own photos. All sounds good except the service intervals.. which are truely rubbish for a completely new design engine..... No one else has designed a new engine with a small service interval for a long time. They need to be careful or they'll get into the old Ducati issue.

Snev, the pointy bit is so that people know you're having an Adventure

You get a free "Outer Elbonia Customs" sticker slapped on it at every service too, so don't moan about the intervals.

Why does it look the same..? Porsche did the same with the Boxster. Spent loads of money on a new model, and make it look exactly like the old one..!

@cousinbillybob: Funny that, cos I was thinking how much better this one looked that the old one. I liked the looks of the 1150gs, but not the last one and I like this one again. That said, it should look similar. If you look at the r1 or the gsx, they've hardly changed over several generations. The GS has changed much more.
