I don't know. I just saw a 745 iL last night and couldn't see what all the fuss was about. I thought it looked fine.

I already owned this bike.

It was called the Pacific Coast. Big ol' scooter anyone? I'll take mine in white please so I can use it for funerals and stuff.

Go buy one or those words mean absolutely nothing. I know I won't be buying one.

"Do they let Bangle near the bikes too?"



I believe that's where he got his start at BMW. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Looks like someone drove a Vespa scooter into one of the craters a Yucca Flats in the early 50's and the makers of The Hills Have Eyes recently found it while filming there.

So far as I can tell by the comments these guys are off to a great start. Sure has got us looking and talking. Just what the winter blah bikers needed to get the old molasses in their blood moving.

Not trying to compare bikes at all but I do remember what folks said about the V-Rod when it first showed up.

Nice to see someone trying something .

The outdoor pics from motorcycle daily you can see the crash bars protecting the side cases. Similar to a KLT's semi hidden crash bars, which I tested on a rental LT and a hot parking lot. Picking up an LT is one thing, picking one up and prying the kickstand out of the asphault at the same time is another. Sure glad I had been drinking milk...
