    June isn't typically a release month by history is it? We wanted to wait as well, but went Orange instead for now.
    Really looking forward to seeing/riding one

    With new models schedules can be interesting. They introduce a model - say the "R". Then follow on with the "GS". I forget the sequence with the R1100 models except to note that the RS came in May of 1993 as a 1994 model. We bought one - now called Big Red.

    What is the MSRP? The G310R starts at $4,750, so how much more are they adding on for the GS enhancements?

    For the first time in several years, this model has piqued my interested I am looking for another motorcycle that I can use for a daily rider in the city and on fire and forestry trunk roads near my area. Can't wait to see one in the flesh - perhaps at the annual January motorcycle show in Calgary.

    I see the 'R' model MSRP in Canada is surprisingly close at $5,250 CAN on the Canadian Motorrad site - still a guessing game for the GS however which is not yet listed.

    Just looking at the pictures so far, do not see a whole lot of extra bits than the R

    With that thought, I was hoping real close to the Roadsters price...But, just a WAG.
    now adding some panniers and engine guards...well, you know the story.

    I am curious about something. Will the purchasers of the G310 GS be allowed to hang out with the GS GIANTS, or will they have to form their own group called the GS dwarfs, midgets or something appropriate for smaller stature ?

    Nah, they will be riding circles around the dirt napping 1200's and floating over obstacles that slow the big boys and girls down...they will earn respect quickly

    I see the R and GS have optional luggage racks and two different topcases, but no panniers.
    I wonder if they will have small optional panniers in the future.
