Kinda ironic, doesn't look like any of those riders are under 50 and most look like they're over 60. Just saying.

Ironic in what way? That's this bike's demographic. Whippersnappers are welcome to ride it, too, as long as they stay off my lawn.

Hey svfiat, that is ageism, surely most K1600 riders are over 40 because they are the only ones who can afford such a luxury touring motorcycle!

I googled Ride magazine, and came up with article on travel tips:

https://ridemagazine.com/toms-travel-tips/

Google results are funny things sometimes.

Not many younger guys are going to have a spare 25 to 35K hanging around.
Even the older crown might not that's why BMW offers those 3 financial options.

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaim: "Wow, what a ride".

OK. I am 60 too. LOL! You guys focused on the wrong thing first; it is the 21st century and you took a photo of a printed magazine. You'd look a whole lot cooler in HD. If you want to fight ageism (as I do daily), start with the ironic.

Love you guys.
