Chuckle on. When there is nothing out there that fits your specs, I say build your own. I was prepared to spend $13,000 for what I wanted but it did not exist. This is a good platform to start with and that is all it is to me - a starting point. My $6,800 used BMW R1150R ended up close to $13,000 when finished, but it had comfort and features that neither the R1150GS or R1150RT or any competing bike could provide, plus it fit me specifically and I have enjoyed it now for 8 years and expect many more.

Why just settle for what they offer you. My dog can do that.
