    New Member Introductions
    Hi all, or Eyup in my native Yorkshire tongue 😉 I’m Dave, I’m in Christchurch NZ, enjoying my new 2020 Urban GS ... well actually, absolutely loving it!! It’s my first big bike in 15 years (not counting the commuter 200’s!), with my previous one being an original 1980 R80GS which I used to ride...
  2. Windscreen for Urban GS

    Appearance & Body
    Hello, Hoping to find some info on a good windscreen for long distance rides for an Urban GS. I do allot of camping trips and I'm planning a ten-day, thirteen-hundred mile trip in September. I've been looking at something like a MRA V-Flow Z or C screen but without being able to actually...
  3. Urban GS dropped from the range?

    BMW NineT News
    Just noticed the Urban GS is no longer showing up in the Heritage range, or anywhere else, on the BMW website (at least the US site, with Safari browser). What gives - is this great bike being dropped? :unsure:
  4. 17in front on a scrambler / urban gs

    Wheels, Tires and Brakes
    Good morning all, hope you are all well and staying safe. I’m in the middle of making my urban GS a road focused ‘urban racer’ and would like to know if anyone had fitted a 17inch front wheel to their scrambler/GS? Do the stock forks take an R9T 17 off a standard bike or do I need to look into...
  5. Urban GS color change?!

    Appearance & Body
    Bored and started playing with ideas for plasti-dipping / wrapping or maybe painting my UGS individual BMW colors... Would love to hear everyone's favorites! Anyone ever change the color of theirs? What method did you use?
  6. U-GS 'Fat Berta' playing in the sand for the first time...

    R NineT Adventures...
    My mate who's been into ADV riding for 2 years now took me along to show me how it's done... First time for me on sand and the UGS is not that bad at all, a few more mods (do I hear the wife crying?) and it should be ok-ish. Although, after digging and dragging all day.....I do understand...

  11. Urban GS - Removing headlight cowl and beak

    Appearance & Body
    Hey guys, installed the Daedalus Tail Tidy on my Urban today. I really like the clean look and now I am curios to see the bike without the headlight cowl and beak. Has any one of you done this? Any advice on what screws to remove is highly appreciated!! Thanks

    Hello folks Picked up my '17 Urban yesterday and had a great 200 mile trip home. All good although a bit peeved to discover tool kit absent, particularly as screwdriver handle required for oil fill! Previous owner, you should be ashamed of yourself...although from what I gather contents where...

    Hi there, I'm from Heverlee, Belgium and I am a very happy rider of an R Nine-T Urban G/S. Just crossed the 10.000km mark last week as I ride it everyday to and back from work. Before that I have been riding a BMW F700GS. The moment I took a testride on the Urban G/S... I just knew I had to go...

    Suspension and Steering
    Hi. I will pick up my new Urban GS next week and right away I want to replace one of the handlebar mount bolts with a RAM Mount ball so I can have my GPS. I see from the microfiche that the front bolts are M10 x 80 and the rear ones are M8 x 30. I am thinking of replacing one of the rear...

    BMW NineT Reviews
    My first ride with my brand new R NineT G/S Wow! Was I startled pressing the start button. Was that me? What a sound! The looks stunning anyway.

  19. High bars for scrambler/urban gs

    Suspension and Steering
    Has anyone installed higher bars on their scrambler/urban gs? I’ve looked at the Unit Garage bars. I’m a little concerned that the shim from 7/8 to 1 1/8 will increase vibrations. And I’ve looked at risers. I installed the BMW scrambler risers on my urban, but they seemed to increase the...

    New Member Introductions
    Hello everyone! I’m about halfway through my break-in and really enjoying the bike as an all-around choice. I’m coming off a Harley Road King. I’ve owned sportsters, dynas, softails and also a short stint last year on the triumph street scrambler. On the urban I’ve done about a 100 mile stretch...
