    ST on cover of the News

    Hey, just got my October News, and lo and behold, there's an R1200ST right on the cover.

    Thanks, Vince.

    Also no offense, but the RT rules the roost!
    It's a tough job but somebody's gotta do it.

    Dream on, mine is 100+ lbs less, faster, has saddle and tail bags when I want I want them, has GPS and lots of music, stops faster, and turns quicker. Also, very little plastic removal to do maintenance.

    Bring back the RS. Maybe with the new wethead it will reapear
    The thing about traveling is, you never want it to end and you can't wait to get home.

    Of course they are all just variations of the BMW's best ever effort, the 'R'.

    To me, the S is just exotic. I seriously considered getting one.

    The S is exotic because BMW did a bad job selling them in the US, ending their distribution here in 1.5 years (early 2008) with the HP2 Sport, when the S was sold in Australia and South Africa, and most of Europe until 2010 (model year 2009).

    There never was a 2008 or 2009 S model here.

    We did as one popped up with low miles...

    Have had, and still have three Hex R models, except the ST...ridden one of course. Closer to an R than RT from my view. They are as rare as S's around here these days
    They all do something a bit different . I decided the RT was fun, but the other models had more of a draw to me & Helen.The S is just devious
