I wanted to hook up with ya, but got caught up in all the stuff happening and actually did some things my wife wanted to do. I am sorry I missed you guys. I'll buy next time down.

If you should blow 3 trillion, would you rather buy 120 million Honda Runes or try to bring democracy to Iraq?

Iraq is obviously the sensible shoes choice. Otherwise there would be just too many Runes. Wall-Mart greeters would give them free for shoppers. Old ladies with plastic bags would rip through the hedges and billboards. It would be absolute carnage.

Completely agree. i LOVE the BMW XCountry, love it. beautiful bike, good manageable power comfortable to sit on and I LIKE it. But, and its a big but, its too freakin expensive! $7500 for a 650 thumper? I can get a Triumph Scrambler for $8000 thats (in my opinion) more comfortable, has about 3 more hp but a flatter power curve, still a beautiful bike.

So why is a 650 thumper $7500 and a 900 twin $8000? or an even better question is why is the Xcountry $7500 and a KLR is $5300? $2200 for what?!

Oy, i like the BMWs but not for over $2k

You're not the only one to make these same arguments about BMW's pricing. I've a friend of mine owns the local BMW Dealership that outlined pretty-much the same thing to me several months before the release of these bikes.
