Great writeup, Yossef!



You didn't mention heat issues. Was engine heat ever a problem?

I agree. Dealer support is a big factor when buying a bike. The closest MG dealer to me is 60 miles away. The closest Yam/Hon/Kaw/Suz/HD dealers are 15 miles away. BMW is 40 miles away.



I really want a Norge 1200 though.

The Falcone? Would love to see that motor in a Buell chassis, exposed flywheel and all...

Glad to see my kPPI catching on.. I received a total of 16 emails from MOrons wanting kPPIs for their bikes.. I plan to create a web site so folks like you Fenton can quickly get your kPPI. kPPI is an absolute must when making a bike buying comparison..

Nice, Yossef tough being u riding round in Alps. I would go Guzzi over BMW, even tho i love BMW boxers, for the sound alone. Ducati noise but even better, as opposed to flat twin drone...
