I hang my dress shirts off of them to dry when I'm riding. By the time I get to a meeting, fresh and dry!

Until a car can lean into a turn like a motorcycle, there is no equivalent car to a motorcycle. Only similar brands or styles.

Fuel mileage is just OK. I have never really kept track all that much but 150 miles to a tank is about all you can rely on. Start riding it like it is meant to be ridden and it sucks fuel like you wouldn't believe. Small price to pay for such an enjoyable experience. Lots of people tour on a BB so I guess the mileage is acceptable. The beauty of them is, they can be obtained for very reasonable price and they are bullet proof.

Keep an eye on the fuel gauge in this vid. Start watching about the 1:30 mark.

It's all subjective, but IMHO, the Saturn Sky was one of the nicer-looking roadsters of the past few decades whereas the R1200ST, while functionally a fine bike, ranks right up there with the Suzuki Madura on the ugly scale.
