I have a 13GT, not a bagger, but I love the bike. Recently took a test ride on two Harley's, a RoadGlide with a fixed fairing like we have, and then a StreetGlide with a fairing that moves with the bars. Interesting bikes, neither are for me, don't like the feet out front seating position. They have good low end torque, but once they get moving they accelerate like a snail. My GT is superior in every regard except the electronics. Both Harleys had a BOOM BOX system. The bike synced with my Cardo Packtalk Bold in seconds. I could actually see the Display, and the GPS, it was twice the size of my Nav, and even in direct sunlight easily read. No digital speedo, but then again I didn't need to turn off my radio to have the speedo come to life. BMW needs to step up the electronics package significantly. The bikes Bluetooth is garbage, and there no excuse for that. The dash needs a facelift and either enlarge the GPS, or bring it closer somehow. I also test rode a new K1600B, and was floored by the difference in engine performance between my bike and the B. The engine on the B seemed significantly detuned.
