Clean GS

This morning, I gave the BMW R 1200 GS its first bath. Yes, this one is just as difficult to wash as the last one. That said, I like the updated styling of this 2017 better: it’s more industrial—darker. Where the engine and frame were silver on my 2016, these are more like a space gray, and that goes with the blue nicely. I’m not sure how I feel about the GS graphic on the tank, but I don’t hate it. After its bath, I took a little ride to celebrate a clean bike and a beautiful day.
