Speaking of racing...

I saw a fellow walking around in full racing leathers near his Ducati Panigale at a local mall. After chatting with him for a few minutes about the virtues of his Ducati I saw an easy mark so I challenged him to a race for titles.
He readily agreed when I told him that I rode a 2014 GTL/E.


He quickly backed down when I told him the race would be from the George Washington Bridge to Los Angeles and back. Wimp...

Agreed...this coming from a former GT, owner, and current owner of a B. It also brought new life to this forum, in the form of many new members. I wonder if there is data, on current members, that have been active, based on the model they own, or even since the addition of the B and GA models? Or if that would even be possible.

I've owned the following bikes for long distance hauls: Kawi C14, Multistrada, R1200RS, Ninja 1000 and a ZX14. All were awesome bikes in their own way. I recently purchased a "B", because of back issues and though I really wanted to ride in a more upright position such as on a GS or an XR, my back just would not let me. When my dealer suggested taking the B out for a spin I was reluctant, luckily I have a a great relationship with my dealer and he allowed me to take home a used B for the weekend and I really found this bike to be very, very accommodating to my condition. It's really weird to me because the B's riding position is pretty much upright, I believe it works for me because of the rider triangle of the B. What I love about it that it does have the 1600 motor, ESA, cruise and all the other BMW tech. The B works and works well, I really like my B!

Yep, I'm a Girlyman and really happy with the B.

Love of all things with wheels and a motor
