As to other comments, I too will most likely replace the primary front sprocket with 1 tooth larger when they are available. Unfortunately I live in USA on the west coast and most likely wont see my G310 GS until end of this year or first of next year. I put a deposit on one so hopefully I will get it as soon they they are shipped here.
Don't know if bike makes do dealer tours with new bikes like what car makers do but it would be a great thing, some of us serious about the GS could see it well before the official launch.

I just left the BMW dealership where I put my deposit on the G310GS and was talking with the dealerships owner. He said the delay to the USA is partly due to our lighting differences, all lights, turn signal lenses, brake light and lens etc all have to be DOT approved which is NOT a requirement for the rest of the world. He also said the GS will most likely have slightly different gear ratios than the R at least here in the USA. I cant say if what I was told was true or not but I didn't figure that the owner of a dealership would lie to my face. He also said as he got new or better info he would keep me informed. He also believes that the GS will be a big success here in the USA but is not sure about the R. He now has 6 deposits on the R and 10 on the GS I am number 5 for the GS.

Actually I have been noticing more new riders prefer bikes just like the GS with more relaxed ergonomics but at the same time still packing enough power. That might be why I seen some great feedback of another cool 300cc-series bike... the KTM Duke 390.
