New g310r owner in LA

Hi,

I just bought a g310r in Los Angeles. It's my first bike and I love it.

Welcome from another LA rider. Is this a fun bike or for daily transport? I can't get over how many people prefer to sit in traffic for hours rather than be free.

Welcome from San Antonio, Texas (winter) and Moosehead Lake, Maine (summer). I keep the g310R in Maine year round. It's almost perfect for riding Maine's largely two lane "country" roads. Last year I downsized from my beloved '93 BMW K75S and am convinced I made the right choice.

I got the strato blue. It looks great, but more than anything, I love how light and responsive it is. It's taking all kinds of restraint on my part not to be on it all the time.

Since it is your first bike I will say keep it shiny side up and don't go over board with it. That being said I beat the holy **** out of mine every day ( I have been riding since I was around 13 and I am now 64 ). I don't think mine knows what a red line is. Mine is a 2018 G310GS and has around 17k miles on it so far. Its had its fair share of problems ( cush drive rubbers, stator, voltage regulator, battery, and the kick stand recall fix ) but all has been fixed by BMW under warranty and it is running a lot better than new. It has taken me and all my gear camping from one side of the USA to the other and back without a hitch at speeds from 0-96mph, and 8 hour days at 70-80mph, both on and off road. One of the best / most fun bikes I have ever owned. There are always problem with first year bikes and the G310's are no exception.



Have fun, enjoy your new machine, and be safe.
