Let's see some pics of this bike!I have a 2018 BMW g310 GS. I am currently in the process of building it specifically to travel the Trans American Trail. I've traveled nearly 3,000 trail miles on the TW. While the TW is nearly perfect for the trail, i am now at the more extreme Western side of the trail and since I have to do in stages, it is the humping asphalt back to the trailer that I struggle on the TW with.
Bike so far is set up with SW mototech SYS luggage, machineart moto hand guards, LED running and tail lights, , Rally Raid wind screen, rear RotoPak rack. Wired for GPS, USB charging, and some of those stupid BMW charge ports for heated clothing and such. Currently on order are Rally Raid wire rims & skid plate. Considering suspension upgrades in the future.
Now for all my awesome forum members who think I am stupid for spending this kind of ridiculous money on this conversion, you are correct, and i have no argument other than this is what I want!
In regards to the bike performance. I have done approximately 600 miles of the TAT's more extreme Tennessee route with no troubles at all. The bike does have some first generation quirks, clutch seems very touchy, thru multiple adjustments I believe I have it set as good as it is going to get and expect very little issues going forward. transmission was a bit notchy when newer, virtually no issue after break in. Had to wire around the kick stand switch, as this will more than likely be torn off once you really start to have off road fun.
I realize this bike is not for everyone. I happen to have 6 registered, insured, and ridden bikes in my current garage. I can handle virtually any segment of the hobby from small displacement TW, to scrambler in town riding, to huligan style power cruiser, to long distance full dress cruiser. All I know is at this point i have absolutely zero buyer remorse with the bike or even the ridiculous amount of money on the farkles. This bike is FUN!
That is Jenny Morgan testing out the 310 gs for rally raid. She was also the test prover for their cb500x kit. Phenomenal rider and great story teller. All her ride reports are a joy to read.
