    My dealer has an F800GT demo that's $1000 off plus a set of side cases included so it's about $2k less than a no miles bike. It's very tempting. It all depends on the deal offered but I would...

    I've had more than one instance where I didn't get shipping info until the day after the shipment. Maybe it went out today and you just won't get the info until tomorrow. Good luck with that anyway.

    That's a tempting bike with the good price, great mpg, regular gasoline etc. and would do nicely for my riding needs. What years did they have that great orange color?

    Wasn't really thinking in terms of taking a 1200 and putting 700 cylinders on it. I was thinking more about an all scaled down bike that could have like a 500 and 750 option in a smaller, lighter,...

    Yes, that was what I meant, a smaller boxer bike that is modern but not high tech. Something in the midpoint between my dad's 1975 R/75 and a current R1200 with every bell and whistle known to man.

    I'd like to see them do an R60 or R75 with just the basics at around 400 pounds max for no more than $9990. It doesn't have to have all the electronic suspension and ride controls, linked braking,...

    My GS is only 4 now so he can't make the decision just yet. He'd be 2x when I get too arthritic to ride.

    Which model BMW would you pick?

    Let's say you are from the Houston metro area. You're in your upper 50's. You'd like to have a new BMW. It will be the last bike you buy and somewhere in the next 15-20-25 years when you can't ride...

    I gave some thought to the C650 but at 575 pounds fueled and 42mpg at 75 it just doesn't compare the the F800GT at 470 pounds fueled and 55mpg at 75. For the difference in cost the F800 wins for me....

    My dad had a Bridgestone in about 1970 or so. As I recall it was a 350 twin and it had high pipes. It was a good looking gold color. He rode it for a year or two and then went to an R75/5

    I guess we better not nibble our pop tarts into the shape of a gun or hold our finger and thumb in the shape of a gun and make pyow sounds too then. Hysteria covers lots of ground.

    I agree on the trucks. The decibel level of a truck is often inversely proportional to the IQ of the owner. I've been in that industry as a fleet owner, with stock exhausts/mufflers on all vehicles,...
