    t1000 miles on my bmw c 650 gt - very nice scoot. I have noticed no vibrations and acceleration is smooth. Only a few complaints: rear view mirrors are placed a too far forward & dash lcd is monochrome and is difficult to see in daytime with the shades on. Noise is a little high but many like it that way. Horn is pathetic! Too much tupperware but cars now have this problem too. Extra passenger is no problem - barely notice. Heavy maxi - gone are the days of wearing dress shoes for intraday errands. As i live on the coast it is nice to see no corrosion so far.

    Do any of you new owners have a good thought on two up riding??? Trying to decide between an RT and the C650Gt. Finally got to sit on one with the wife and with the addition of a back rest she thought it was roomier than the 1200Rt we used to have.

    A real world report would be great.

    And I'm assuming that the 588w alternator is enough to run vests and such.

    MCN magazine (Motorcycle Consumer News) will be doing a full review of the Beemer Scoots in the upcoming February issue. :evil

    Should be some very worthwhile info since they don't need to cater to advertisers.

    I wonder if US-spec BMW scooters can be purchased in Germany...
