Whatever I read I must have taken completely out of context. Pardon my retardation. I should know not to expect such mileage out of anything larger than a Taotao scooter.

+1

That might be the most awesome BMW I've ever seen. The factory should copy this. Think Ducati's Paul Smart, or MH900e

Just my opinion, but my GSA is way more comfortable, and just as capable of thousand-mile days, as the R1200RT I once rented in AZ. A GS doesn't mind dirt either.:evil
