I would say it would be a really good ride around town,I would think about getting one of these if I didn't have the k1200,imagine just cruising around on one of these amazing,bmw are really getting there act together now with the k1200 and then this.
Saw one at the dealer last week, and two things struck me immediately: First, you need a frickin' ladder to get on the thing (and I'm 6'1"), and second it has a fuel-tank the size of a teacup. According to the dealer it does around 60 miles between fills. Not too practical, then. But then you don't pop 12k British and expect practical, you fool!
