Bichin' Bike.

I think I know what my next moto will be - but with finances like they are at the moment, it's gonna be a year or two (or ten).

I'm liking the fact that some of the past MO posters have been appearing again.

Yeah. This year was the "year of the bicycle" for me. Now that that's winding down, I have a little more time for BSing... and riding my moto-sykuhl.

Headin' out today for a 8-day trip to the Adirondacks (Lake George, Lake Placid, etc.). Woo-hoo!

Cool, when I was a kid we used to go sking and camping there. My dad was big into rally cars as well as bikes so we used to hit Watkins Glen every year too. Nice place, have a ball !

is gud, no?
 
Seems like a cant miss bike, and looks good in ole Bumblebee zoot suit.
This year continues to be Year Of Feet, Pedals, and occasionally XR600.
I'll take one..if i can draw pictures of legal tender in exchange for the key and title.
Pete- clean out both ear canals, or one will itch all day.
Depictions of nature are made better with bikes in the frame.

Pete- will the ST rims/brakes slide right in place. I'm thinkin this would be a b!tchin' SM, too.

If BMW is going to attract younger buyers they might just have more success with this middleweight offering than the poor performing 650X series or the overpriced K1200S series. The price point isn't completely unreasonable.... it's fairly in line with Honda. And it doesn't look like every cookie-cutteur race replica or cruiser out there. It's usable for any type of real world street riding with a minimal off road capacity. Certainly the reduced weight makes it a more attractive adventure bike than the porcine 1200.

Hope it works out for them. They have the same aging demographic problem that HD has.

That's the firdt BMW I've seen that I'd consider buying.
