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.
I agree with both of you. It's at once funny and super cool that you like this platform and want to make it yours.
you only go around this ride once. Wy knot?
