I always liked the S model myself,I'm just to short to ride it in comfort.
At 5'8" and a 30" inseam the bike just stretches out too much,otherwise......the styling fits me fine

Considering the cold, insurance costs, and my lack of proper luggage, I've been eyeing (and against my better judgement, since I love goldwings) a Concours 1000

Bought mine about a month ago. Cheap as dirt, runs like a top, and grin-per-mile is high. Get one, you won't regret it.

I'm surprised by the number of BMW's in this thread. I wonder if those lusting after a Beemer have ever owned one?

From what I can tell this whole forum attracts a lot of BMW fans in general, probably due to the whole GS/adventure thing.
