Well I’m ditching the old R1200gs and bought a 901. It arrive while I was away snowboarding but as soon as they opened today, I took delivery of it and went for a spin. Have to say, it handles nice and doesn’t feel like a heavy bike. Can’t wIt til I get get me hands on some upgrades. My local dealer doesn’t show availability for anything, not even Husky accessories. If anybody knows a source, please let me know. Thanks and ride save.

Thank you. It’s a very sexy bike and coming from a 2008 r1200gs, the tank doesn’t feel large. Defiantly handles better on dirt trails than BMW. Hate to say it, but it’s true. The only bummer, I wish it came with a hydraulic clutch like my FE501 or 300xcw tpi. Can’t wait for the first trip.

Hi Jude.

Very interesting your feelings after a first ride ! I did the same as you : I changed my GS1200 Adv 2008 for a Norden. The GS is too heavy for me now. The Husky is allready in the store waiting for some accessories. I think I will get it on February when the lowering kit is installed (if I can wait until that).

The frame seems to be similar to the KTM 890 Adv. I probably will install soft luggage from Bumot, they will check to adapt their racks to the Norden for end January (BUMOT Motorcycle Luggage).

Awesome. Keep me posted on available side bags. I was thinking soft this time instead on the panniers.

I went to AOMC.mx They have a few items for the Norden.

Thanks. I ended up dropping off my bike with Rottweiler Performance so they can start some R&D. They have some really bitchin stuff planned for this bike. Some things cross over from the KTM 890 Adv and they are populating their 901 section daily.

Picked up my Norden in San Francisco on Friday, first one out the door. Amazing ride, pluses and minuses from my 2012 R1200 GS which I love. So far I love the change, the Norden is lighter, more nimble and compact, quicker and just more fun. The Beemer engine has a roar, the Norden whines. I love em both. Can't wait until some accessories are available, in the meantime I'm wearing a backpack. Super psyched!

Thanks Jude, can I ask where you got the lowering kit? Thanks Don
