Staff Blog: It’s not all about the new stuff

Richard Newland, 01 August 2013 10:48

While at the Goodwood Festival of Speed a couple of weeks ago, I was chatting with an MCN reader about the BMW 90th Anniversary display, each of us singling out the models we’d own if money was no object. He was a nice chap, but his ‘mate’ clearly had a bit of a chip on his shoulder about the bike ...

Staff Blog: I bet it won’t go off-road…

Richard Newland, 19 June 2013 10:10

Whether I’m picking up a curry on a Saturday night, filling up with petrol somewhere, or answering calls from readers who are thinking of buying one (or never buying one) – I’m regularly bombarded by the sure assertion that the R1200GS must be rubbish when the Tarmac gives way to the soft stuff. It’s a slightly odd assertion considering the ...

Staff Blog: Swings and roundabouts

Richard Newland, 05 June 2013 10:42

Every bike will delight and frustrate you to some extent – it’s an inevitable truth. While touches of pure and simple genius will provide fodder to evangelise to your friends, there will always be those ‘what were they thinking’ facets that tug at the back of your happiness, and which you hope no-one else picks up on.

Staff Blog: Hello Moto(rrad)

MCN, 29 May 2013 15:44

If you’d told me ten years ago that I’d be ecstatic at the prospect of riding an R1200GS as a longterm test bike, I’d have been breathless with laughter before any sort of verbal response could form on my lips. But back in the here and now, I’m just that – ecstatic. So what’s changed? Well there’s no point pretending ...

BMW R1200GS Rallye first ride

Adam Child, 08 March 2012 17:34

It's been a long time coming, but if any bike's deserving of a commemorative special edition model surely it's the BMW R1200GS. The class-defning German adventure bike has been a market leader throughout all its guises since the original and radical-for-the-time R80G/S of 1980. To celebrate that, and no doubt to encourage more sales of the current, ageing version before ...

New BMW R1200GS Triple Black first ride

Trevore Franklin, 01 April 2011 17:41

Limited edition bikes are like truffles: you wonder what all the fuss is about, especially for the extra outlay involved in buying them. So, when BMW introduces a limited edition R1200GS, you feel justified in saying: "So what?" The standard R1200GS, with no thrills or frills, costs £10,550. The question is: would you pay an extra £435 for the same ...
