I hear you guys, I was really disappointed with the new GT when I first saw it, but it is really growing on me, and I am sure, the demo ride will be the large deciding factor. I really don't want to go back to an RT, even though I like the looks of the RT, I dont like the way it performs at low speeds. I just dont know what to do with the K1200S, I am still in love with its looks and performance, but really need something for long, 2 up days if I want to keep peace with the better half and keep riding as much as we do! And the blue GT is looking better and better, maybe I could do the Zebra treatment, like the 03-04 Blue-White RS, I think that is one of the greatest looking bikes BMW has ever made! Anyone know when they will actually be in the dealers for demo rides??
This bike will be a big hit. As a total package, like the KS, It'll out perform everything else going. And once seen in the flesh, all discussion about design weakness will disappear.
Having owned several BMW's along the way, including a brief KS marriage, I'm looking forward to this bike. My hunch is it'll encapsulate everything I enjoy about motorcycling, and do it faster, smother and sexier than anything I can imagine.
I gave serious thought to the FJR, and I'm glad it didn't materialize into ownership. It would have been one more bike to sell. Personally speaking, of course, BMW has my vote for being the best.
Hope everyone is having a great fall. This week in FL we're riding in the low 80's!
