Featured BMW R1200GS Motorcycles
Last update 08Mar2010

A series of articles (write-ups) by the owners of R1200GS and R1200GSA motorcycles (BMW R1200GS owners' bikes) giving you an insight into the modifications to their bikes and the accessories they've bought, had fitted or installed themselves.
NB: The bikes are listed chronologically i.e. most recent additions at the bottom of the listing ;-)

Modifying our bikes - it's something not many of us can resist, whether it's adding accessories to make life easier, bolting on bits for practicality/function, aesthetic mods to add individuality, performance and handling enhancements, bespoke luggage, diy mods and so the list goes on! :-)
So, the Featured Bikes section is a great way to get ideas for things you might like to do yourself, see how someone else has done something you're considering or just plain interesting browsing!

High resolution photos of these and MANY more GS's can be found in the R1200GS Photo Galleries here: http://andyw-inuk.smugmug.com/Motorcycles/632321

Please contact me if you would like your bike to be featured here.
(There's a few examples of the type of thing I'm after for the write-ups on GSs on my 'old' website - SV1000 featured bikes but you'll get the idea of what I'm after:-)
