Great review, but like others, a bike that fast would just mean speeding tickets for me. My Valkyrie makes me break enough laws as it is.



However, I would suggest someone do a better job proofing...several spelling errors. Sorry, former English major, I can't help it

Default Re: How often?

Reading to much European motorcycle press will cause you to pick up some of the grammer and slang. I almost have to be concious not to spell 'tire' 'tyre'. I'll watch the fag slang though. In the big city here saying, "Man, I'd really like to smoke a fag with this beer." may get you more than you bargain for.

Why is it that I find myself frequently thinking of buying a Valk these days? That big v-6 is like giving the finger to the typical cruiser crowd. I love it. All that engine hangin' out everywhere gives me a woody.



Hate the rune though. They should be shot for that abomination.

Default Re: Walther p99

Can't carry a shotgun concealed. Therefore it seems that a shotgun is all but useless unless you're at home. Wife and I both have concealed carry licenses, and carry almost at all times.



007 now uses a P99. Switched in the new guy's first movie.

Default Not Even the Same Category

With all attributable respect they are not even in the same category---one is a super sport bike, the other trying to find an identity to justify it outlandish price tag. If that category is luxo-super sport bike, I know of many a Heli-bar, Double-Bubble and other accessories added to a Busa and the like that put this BMW to shame for substantially less money. It would take BMW pricing this model at around $11K to compete and BMW will never do that, because they believe in their own minds that they are comparable to a venerable Porsche 911 mystic and engineering, which that are not. Even Porsche realized that refined design still has to make the numbers game in its category, hence to continual refinement of the 911. Where BMW deserves credit is for the new hex-head oil-cooled engine and the R 1200 GS that has earned all the accolades that it receives.

The engine is a "flat" six, or if you like a boxer six, not a v6. VWW
