Thanks for pointing that out - I found an interview: http://www.cyclenews.com/articles/of...-david-knight/
which comically goes directly against the lying propaganda reviews of Motorcycle-USA when they wrote "If you were a gambling man, you'd have laid money on BMW's first-ever production enduro race bike being quirky and interesting but ultimately uncompetitive," then countered it in their 'review' http://www.motorcycle-usa.com/73/765...-X-Review.aspx
Every time I get thinking I'd want a BMW - of any type - I get to researching them and find that they never were the latest and greatest thing, and that they'd drive me to the poor-house (farther than I already am) trying to keep them working...
BMW - reliability like Italian bikes, but uglier.
