Default I like it

It looks like a good bike to tour on with a close personal friend. I like it and I'm not even a Harley guy.

I'd take a wing over it all day, sorry just looks to old school for my personal taste.

And I'd have no problem with it specially when I barely have to touch the throttle to motor by just about anything. (with my American flag paint scheme)

And don't forget that with every new Goldwing the Honda Corporation is offering discount plots at Forest Lawn.

Still undersquare by .505" (stroke longer than bore diameter).

Just as I have no problem motoring past my buddy's 2006 GL-1800...

Performance is relative. People don't buy Harleys for their performance.

I test rode one of these before I settled on my current GS, hell of a nice bike, comfy with plenty of power, lot's of usefull features, the only problem was the price. The local dealer tried adding a vasoline tax which was an insult so I politely declined and went Beemer shopping instead.

Sometimes what people really need is a visual aide. You should ride up to the H-D dealer, rev your BMW engine (vroom-vroom), sneer at him and then say "Beemer!", as you peel away in a cloud of smoke.

That'd be sweet!
