Best keep a bucket of cold water handy! Come to think of it though, a live video streamed broadcast of a cage match might boost MO's subscription rate.

The invisible one in picture #20 is a no cost option. The naked one in #17 ain't bad either.

It always made me laugh when the feminist types said if we had all women presidents we'd never have any wars. Ha!



Broads would pitch a couple of nukes over a bad hair day or if the other prez dared to wear the same shoes.

Nice review. Let me start by saying that I currently own an FJR and also the R1100S (and the RT before that), so I'm not talking out of my @$$ here.



I will probably sell the FJR and R1100S and buy the GT. The FJR is ungawdly hot when the fan kicks in, and I've had to take it to the shop twice for problems and each time they told me that they couldn't find the problem. I've had three BMW's and never had problems with any of them.



As far as pricing goes... you get what you pay for. If you want affordable, buy the Concourse or FJR. BMW has a niche with the premium/quality market segment... they've always been quirky and to some...ugly, but that's what sets a BMW apart from all the others..excluding Moto Guzzi and Ducati.



I'm not a kid anymore and I need a bike that I can ride all day in any conditions -- and have fun while doing it. I'm too old for an Interceptor, but can't see myself ever doing a Goldwing. I've paid my dues and can afford to buy the best....electronically adjustable shocks, cruise, heated grips AND 150+ ponies to spank???? Why not?

True. And the Bmw ST gets pushed into the RT price range once you add the options. Slippery slope to be sure.
