For me it is a twofer'. First is the BMW GS1200A. It bored me for all of the very reasons that it is a fantastic bike. It seems to do everything exactly as one would expect for a world touring bike. Unfortunately for me I seem to not like that very much.

The second bike is the new Bonneville. It seems very much like a pedestrian conveyance wrapped in what appears to be a soulful bike. I very much wanted to love it but came away disappointed. It was like having sex with a hot girl you've been lusting after only to find out that she was lousy in bed. Strangely enough the Scrambler was very fun and had a dynamic personality. How did Triumph pull that off ?


One thing that I do have to mention is that even on the two bikes mentioned above I was still able to enjoy the ride. I may have been bored by the bikes but riding will never bore me.
