I have one philosophy ... if you like it you buy it ... there is no obligation. So tired of all of these posts about Goldwings etc. etc. and the 6 cyl BMW. They speal of gas comsumption and mpg ... lol lol lol ... BMW owners should not be concerned of these trivial things. If you must be concerned ... guys ... buy a Kawasaki ... Suzuki ... or a Goldwing. We are BMW owners for God's sake ... do we concern ourselves with trivia as such? I certainly do not. Get a life !
