Is it possible to improve on the legendary BMW R1200GS? Florida-based @xcramblercycles reckon so.
The telelever front end has been binned in favour of a more traditional set-up. Those forks actually come from the Beemer’s biggest competitor—a KTM 1190—and deliver extended travel and a lofty seat height, to accommodate the bike’s 6’ 6” owner.
The forks and the revised rear @ohlinsracing suspension add three inches to this scrambler’s rock hopping abilities.
We’d love to give it a try—what about you?

I’ve been having fun going through some old photos. Here is a collection of my GS in awkward positions. I only got hurt in one of these. The pic with the pannier messed up. Didn’t need to go to the hospital, but I was in a lot of pain and limping for weeks… Hmm maybe I should have gone to the hospital.
The BMW R1200GS is always a pleasure to ride - bags of low down grunt in a sure-footed chassis. Plus it has brakes! With the R80GS in the 1980’s BMW created a whole new market - this is the latest incarnation of that vision.
