BMW and Hardleys
 
Bmw's are great bikes although they have their many
problems, too many to even mention. God forbid you have too limp or trailer to the nearest dealer,it can be a day or two hike, and you should probably call ahead to be sure they haven't folded or gone tits down. But alas I love my RT still. Even though I have hanging from my garage ceiling a spare fd and 2 ESA shocks. I had a few Harley's ( clunk a d clunk ). Nice low and slow like fresh maple out the wooden spigot doing syrup duty in N Vermont. But I could never go back, even after swapping bikes with a buddy's new street glide I was counting the minutes before I could get off the low crawling beast. Harley's have made vast improvements, one was to finally copy the japs and merge the tranny and motor togeather. Damn that was a no brainer and only took them 30years to figure it out. Their still making vast improvements with the different models. Probably every model on the floor could be made with parts from any bike close by. Might have to change up a mirror or blinker to put it stock again. I had a great friend who got old and his legs went hobbit on him, he had to go back to a Harley and now he sits upright at most lights and stop signs. I do try not to laugh as it could easily happen to me. But this would indeed make me sad as I have given all my pirate clothes away and would hate to shave my egg shaped noggin bald And cover it with one of those doo rags. After all these years the RT stills makes me smile like the first time we connected. You go BMW except that ugly 1200c , that was one ugly motorbike. Sometimes those Harley folks say we don't wave. Well hell we got too many dam buttons to play with. As it should be. Sincerely Jim beam

You sent that from a phone? But I too used to live in Vermont, drive a Harley and drop acid. Now I live in Malibu, drive a BMW and drink rosť. Clear?

Jim Beam makes alcohol, not drugs.

Hey, I enjoyed this poster's rant. He sounds like an old guy like me. Good points made about both brands of bikes! Thanks for the laughs. Party on! Guess it is 5;00 somewhere at the bar!:D

Yes they are! Don't know why more weren't sold! Probably because of the exhaust sound, or lack of it.:lol3 BMW won't make that mistake again, meaning trying to enter the cruiser market. They seem enamored by the scooter market now!
