I don't ride one, but I think they are gorgeous. Not many of them around, from what I can tell. Would LOVE to pick one up "just because".

Used to own one. It's a sweet bike in more ways than one.

Never owned one, but I test rode a used one a few months back, and I thought it was a fantastic bike - I honestly wasn't expecting much, and I came away impressed enough that I want one.

such a pretty machine, I really really wanted to own one. My back and my neck however said no for any distance further than around the block.

I've had one for several years now and it's my favorite sporty bike of all time. Fits me great and, with the ohlins suspension set correctly, it handles fantastically. Light weight and plenty of power. Not many of them sold.

Yes, I had a Honda CBR1000 just before I got the R12S and I like the BMW better. I can ride it faster than the Honda.

Yes, I know but those guys are amazingly mean-spirited, sarcastic and rude to each other. I don't get it.
