Everything Steve says. Also for me, when I first became aware of BMW motorcycles, I was in sixth grade in east Tenn. and lots of older guys in highschool were starting to ride around on mopeds and Hondas. There was a gentleman in our town that had a black motorcycle with a funny looking engine. He always looked so cool on the black bike with the funny engine. I have been in love with that engine ever since. I suspect the BMW twin will always be my favorite. I guess I'm just a sentimental guy. I just sold an 05 Triumph Sprint that was lighter, faster, more hp and torque, less expensive to buy and maintain, and much smoother so I could buy my third R1100S Donkey Bike. Say Donkey Bike with Pride!
