Anyone else find the tootsie space limited on the rear brake?



I don't consider my 10.5 Redwings very bulky, but I kept rubbing up against the clutch cover on the big 1200GT.

Has anyone every mentioned the strange handlebar movements of the BMWs?? I rode a 2005 K1200 and was impressed. However, it had this strange downward movement of the handlebars if the bike went over a depression in the road at high speed. Very un-nerving at first. Felt like my bicycle in grade school if I forgot to tighten the handlebar clamp. Otherwise, great bike.

I have given up reading the reviews. The reader feedback is much more fun. *****, *****, *****... most of these guys (Me included)should get out and ride more. It's way more fun than picking nits.

Slab sided fairing looks like it came off of an older new-generation MuZ

Well now, don't you make sense. What the hell is the matter with you. This is MO.

Oops, sorry. heh heh. I would be interested to know what the editor thinks about the points I made in light of what he said above, but I guess I'm not going to find out.

Have you actually ever RIDDEN HARD on Servo-assisted brakes? A serious question, not flamebait.



I had a 2002 R1150RT (why didn't BMW just put the new R1200RT chassis under that beautiful skin??), and I felt - and still feel - that they simply flat-out rule. After my initial "eeeehhhhh, I dunno about this...", I learned to love them and trust them. So sensitive, so powerful, so nearly perfect. I dearly WISH my Ultra Classic had them, instead of the 'holy crap, I hope this thing stops' brakes.

My old bike was FJR but changed into this GT this spring. In photos it looks a bit odd (matter of taste) but in real life is a beaut! Really turns the heads in trafic! And everything is just so finished!



Does everything that FJR but way better! And the engine is fantastic. The sounds are more loud than in FJR, but even those are a plus.



Left my friends Ducati ST4 nicely behind on a small steach.
