And it's not an adventure touring bike.

Any bike that can't deal with just about any kind of weather is a problem because some owner will take it there. There are a lot of solutions to various problems. A bike being out in the rain isn't a hard one to overcome regardless of the class you put it in.

I won't buy one because of the price. From what I have seen, I like the bike, and would love to own one. At a price slightly above the competition, I would have given the bike serious consideration. I am willing to pay a premium for a quality American product...assuming it turns out to be a quality product.
I think we share the same opinion. Mine specifically goes to relative value and at $37k it's just not there for me. If they want to ask a special price then the bike has to be equally special in my eyes, and given what I see, it's not. I'd have to ride it and be absolutely wowed to change my mind.

Just to be clear, no one was banned... but he won't be seeing or posting in RW anymore. The RW forum is no longer visible when he's logged in.

I never wanted him to be perma-banned, I just kept hoping he'd stop shitting all over this thread

He spews his thread-shitting, BMW stroking, uninformed BS in EVERY thread. The fact he can't see RW is perfect. He can troll elsewhere.
