I actually like the look of this bike. However, the pegs look too far rear and putting forward controls on her looks... impossible?
Also, a quick story... On another forum I read a post about a guy that took his old honda nighthawk on a 3k mile round trip down the Baja peninsula. His buddy was on a BMW. He posted a slide show which also documented the multiple times his buddy's bike needed repair. I asked him about it. His response was, "Yeah, I know BMW is supposed to have this high reliability rating, but every motorcycle mechanic I've asked about it laughs at BMW's supposed reliability."
I looked into it and this is what I found:
"... BMW is dead last when it comes to reliability."
Sometimes marketing campaigns work.
