There is no good leverage point to grab.
The rear passenger handhold is where I stead the bike. Step on the lever and she comes right up. Effortless in comparison to the LT.
With the windsreen in the low position, wind hits me in the neck.
With the windscreen in the high position, wind hits me in the forehead.
I am 6'3", Cee Baileys here I come.
That's why aftermarket windshield makers exist, right?
The handgrips are too hard.
I don't understand this one. I think they are the same exact grips as on other BMWs. My LT has the same grips.
The horn button has almost doubled in thickness.
I don't know about this, but the horn definitely is whimpy.
I am glad to have a shift indicator, as 4th, 5th and 6th feel the same at legal speeds.
It takes a lot of willpower to ride this thing at legal speeds.
Yep, I agree. I found that I did need to look at the indicator to know what gear I was in. There's only about a 700 RPM difference between 5th and 6th, and between 4th, 5th, and 6th didn't seem to feel much of a difference either.
Acceleration on this thing is outrageous. I pulled around a car at 70mph in fifth and was doing felony-level speed by the time I cleared his front bumper.
Measured in nanoseconds.
All in all - I love this bike.
