BMW Vs. Honda Reader Feedback

After the new-for-2001 Honda Gold Wing made such a splash at the Year 2001 Dealer's Show and the official press intro in Ohio, we couldn't wait to see how it stacked up against BMW's K1200LT.

In last year's shootout between these bikes, the BMW emerged victorious, knocking the 'Wing from its throne, which was beginning to get well-contoured to its rather large derrier. Would things be any different this year after the Honda's total overhaul -- or would the BMW stay out front?

Take a look at the story and let us know what you think of the bikes and the roles they play. Did Honda do the right thing? Should BMW re-think their design soon or do they target a different rider altogether?

Good questions, all. Let us know what you think...
