New GS Owner (Eureka, Ca.)

Hi All;
Just sold my 2010 Kawasaki KLX250s and purchased a new G310gs in pearl white. Not a stranger to BMW as I have had a few and have at present a 2015 R1200 RTLC. Previous bikes: 79'R65, 87'R80, 99' K1200RS, 04' R1150GS.
I was finding it harder and harder to swing my leg over the KLX and I didn't like riding around town much. So now I will have a nice bike for general fun and the RT for long trips. I won't be able to pick up the new 310 for a couple weeks thanks to the side stand issue.
Looking forward reading about accessories performance hints.

Welcome, and Eureka!! As is, "Eureka, I have found it." I've always wanted come across a situation where I could say that.

Hope you enjoy your GS as much as I'm enjoying my R. My only other BMW (that I can remember) was a '93 K75S. I thoroughly loved that machine, but it grew too heavy and cumbersome, so welcome home G310R.

Are we or are we not insane to buy an Indo-German machine? BMW or not BMW, that’s the question… THE initial confusion. Did you, “Eureka”, really have an ”Aha-moment”, an “Eureka-moment”, when you chose this bike? Were you previously puzzled as to which bike to buy and did it become suddenly obvious this was the one? Or was it after a thorough and pragmatic thought? No “Eureka” in that event! In both ways, congratulations becoming part of us. Insane or not, we have insight!

I found if I over think something I just get confused. When I first saw the 310R I thought if it came in a GS version I might like it. It does and Eureka!
