'05 BMW K1200S - U.S. Test

Sure, I had a lovely time. Really I did -- even though I wasn't very impressed by the BMW K1200S' rough edges, I still had a ball riding it through a couple hundred miles of twisty canyon roads, in all conditions from cold rain at night to scorching desert at noon. The problem is, I still don't think it's ready for public consumption.

However, Gabe really enjoyed his time with our K1200S test unit and he thinks I'm simply being too picky. I say he isn't paying close enough attention, but in his defense, he rode it on roads that suited the K1200S' strengths and downplayed its weaknesses.
