Brand new video featuring the 2019 BMW 1250 Boxer Engine, The new boxer engine will feature variable valve timing to increase the power and torque. Although the best-selling big adventure motorcycle on the market, the big GS is facing a tough competition by KTM and Ducati, who come up with 160 hp, while the R1200GS features only 125. Most GS owners say that 125 hp and 125 NM of torque is enough for an adventure motorcycle, but there’s serious pressure from the competition.
Had to ride up to Boone, NC for the yearly BMW Boone rally. If felt good to get out of the South Carolina heat and humidity. Getting up in elevation makes a big difference with the temps dropping from 95 to 75 degrees.
The rally is held at the Boone KOA campground, which is actually very nice. We rode up Thursday 8/9 and stayed until Sunday 8/12.
Went riding on Friday (all NC country roads and twisties). Sorry, no pictures. Saturday was off-day, and relaxed at the site. Went back home Sunday.
