Hello from the great white North. I picked up a Dakar last year and had a blast on it. Since the BMW was a great welcome from the DR650s in handling, smoothness and comfort why not buy another bmw. Since we frequent Vegas so much I picked up a 05 K1200LT for our visits. Now I and my wife are spoiled!!! I have to keep telling myself to put my feet down when stopping. It feels like a Lazy Boy, it's that comfy....
