Mike M's R1200GS Black Beauty

ADVRider Mike M's 2006 BMW R1200GS

I bought my 2006 R1200GS at BMW of Denver here in Colorado in July of 2006. It currently has just over 15,000 miles on it and I have toured all over western Colorado, Utah and New Mexico on it. I have had a number of BMW motorcycles over the years but the 1200GS in my opinion, is the best all around machine I have owned. I also currently own a 2007 K1200GT in Dark Graphite, GS/GT: The Best of Both Worlds!
As you can see, I've had alot of fun hanging accessories on the 1200GS too!

Factory Equipment:

      • Cast Aluminum Wheels
      • Heated Hand Grips
      • Black Stock Seats
      • Chrome Exhaust Canister

There's been quite a few changes from stock as you'll see from the list below! Kind of absurd the number of accessories and updates that I have put into this machine but it has been a real fun process! :-)

I'm not done I am changing out my PIAA 510 driving lights for a smaller Martin Fabrication light and adding some really trick looking Pazzo clutch and brake levers. I'll see if I can organize the list and photos of all the gear I've added
