Yes that helps. So something like R 1150 R is Rad(boxer)-1150-Rally(touring with no luggage ?). Makes sense in sort of a Teutonic-parallel-universe sort of way.

Good job BMW! Finally BMW delivers a motorcycle with a comparable level of performance to a $7400 Suzuki air/oil-cooled Bandit!



BMW riders can now go trolling in groups with V-Rod owners looking for riders on 14 year old Suzuki GSX1100Gs to trounce!

Ahh, but one critical question remains, can the RT wheelie? I'll bet if it does the impact of the front wheel touching back down with poor throttle control can be felt in the next county.

For the price these bikes are selling, you would thing the styling dept. budget would have gotten a raise in the past few years. Might help if they threw a few bucks in that direction. BMW is doing the free ride thing in April and I'm signing up. The thing that floored me, is there are only 3 BMW dealers in the whole state of Illinois. Luckily, all 3 are in northern Illnois, but I really can't figure why there are so few. Are they doing that badly? The good thing is these bikes will never get lost in a crowd. You are at a rally:

"Where is your bike?"

"It's that ugly Beemer over by those other 5000 bikes"

"Okay, I see it"

The worst part is you could get the Suzuki out the door for 6500 will a little bickering!

Default Working Class Readers

Tim wonders if he's "the only working class reader here?"



We published a review of the $6,740 Suzuki M50... four days ago.
