Im kind of liking the look of this bike!
Just got the magazine today but I can see its already online.

$24K complete, out of the question for me as I am still good on my bike and almost zero to none dealers in this state.

Ok, the exhaust might be a little overdone ... :o)

BMW should try to stay looking like BMW.. not impersonating the $50k Harley interstate cruisers.

The exhaust is ugly, but the bike is nice looking.

I'm hooked on bikes, too many I want, not enough money to buy.

With Euro 4 emissions requirements, aesthetically oversized exhaust systems are becoming more common place.

If a Bagger style bike is what I wanted, this would be high on the list.

That's a good looking bike, but the Guzzi MGX-21 is more my style:

At least they toned down the front wheel and the wood since the concept.

That exhaust though... maybe Akrapovic can help.

Hate when any manufacturer patterns their bike's pipes after a cheerleader's megaphone. Those pipes should be red with a white stripe down the middle that reads Go West County High School Tigers !!!

Otherwise however, it looks like a good package except the screen may need to be taller.
