Thread: The New BMW G 310 GS Thread~

  1. #286

    I am very happy with my G 310GS

    I hesitate to call it a "Baby GS" because it can surprise you with its strong will. Thanks to Voni and Paul I grabbed mine just before the brake recall thing came out. Its a very capable on and off road motorcycle, true to my nature I have to make it mine so I did some personalizing with it. The biggest issue I had was introducing the new GS to the family, a little butt sniffing, some snarling and a more than enough barking (G 310Gs got an Ackrapovic carbon) but after a while they all settled down to a peaceful compromise.

    I think the G 310GS will make the Winter Rally trip this year, you know it is "Florida's Coolest Rally" so why not show up with one of the coolest bikes.

    Recall

    Got my bike back after the brake recall yesterday. I finally have a real front brake, rather than the sponge it came with. Diagnosis was a porous caliper casting. Caliper replaced. Rumor is that BMW has a part number for adjustable levers for the 310 but no price yet. Id like adjustable levers.

    I bought a new G310R in 2019 (or just a couple of posts ago in this space-time continuum). Loved it, but still bought other, bigger bikes.

    My wife finally gave up her Rebel 250, and now loves the G310R -- even more so since adding a two-inch lowering link.

    So I picked up a 2018 G310GS from Hermy's BMW Motorcycles a week or so ago -- being fairly well matched definitely makes our weekend rides so much nicer.

    And I'm a bit taken aback by how much I love the 310GS. It's a seriously fun bike. Not ready to give up my RSL, but the GS is pretty hard to beat where we live -- no need to take freeways and lots of old, twisty roads. It's a great bike. They both are...

    Here we go again

    After 60 years of riding, and a major Accident, I thought my days of riding were over. Then, a BMW 310 GS followed me home. Maybe I have a few more years in me. My last 4 bikes have been 1150gsSo, This is a bit of a change. Looking forward to a new adventure.

    Chip

    Just for interest sake. Has anybody put a chip in their 310? If so any improvement? Was it worth doing?
    First thing I have noticed is. I have to rev the bike much more that I am use to. Feels comfortable! May have to put on Bar back/riser. What have people done for bags.

    No chip.

    Shad bags. We have the 23 liter bags on our bikes. As a do-over I might go with the 30L bags.

    I have the Shad 32 liter bags on my 310 which seem to be not well explained on their web site. https://www.shadusa.com/collections/...ure-saddlebags

    The bags work with the simpler 3P bag mounting system that I think work with Paul's 23 liter system. This is a really a smaller bag mount.

    Since I have had them on the bike, I have not taken them off. Great for picking up groceries and any other excuse for riding.

    It also has great capability, when touring, for containing an extra gas container to make up for the grossly under engineered gas capacity of the 310GS.

    Tell no one.
