    Cute. There's a G450X engine hiding under there.

    I find it amazing that they'd put luggage on that, as if the kind of person who'd tour with it would stop and change the oil every 10 hours as they call for on the G450.

    I agree unless,,, they put on a oil cooler and a dry sump setup with 2L in it.... then maybe it would go the distance.

    That would make it better, but in stock form it holds a little less than a litre.

    Other than a crap seat, they're a fun bike.

    Aren't they all crap seats! The most comfortable stock seat I've encountered in my second riding career was on my Ducati SS, rode it all the way to Cape Breton and back in great comfort. The F650GS single was second in line. Worst was the stock seat on the DR.

    For a BMW, it has a KTM quality seat.

    The stock seat on Forseti's Stelvio is pretty damn good.

    Piece of crap transport won't do over 50, so after limping on the back roads into lovely Cornwall, here I sit at a shop, kinda hoping it's terminal. Crappy day for deliveries.

    On the up side, though it needed serious help to start yesterday, it ran enough so that the heater worked. :D
