    I can get behind that, so I can buy a camhead R12RT.

    I think the updated RT usually comes a year after the GS. The RT was just recently updated, so I don't think there will be a new one announced this year.

    If my memory serves me correctly both the GS and RT got the camhead engine in 2010. They were not a year apart. Seems to me a good chance that if BMW were to do that again they would release at the different shows to maximise publicity.

    The next RT is supposed to be completely redesigned and given they just changed it in 2010 as you noted and the fact that a wethead GSA is a year away, I sincerely doubt you'll see a redesigned RT wethead next year. The 2010 camhead was a midcycle refresh, so perhaps that's why the GSA and RT got the engine all at the same time, but history has shown on new bike models it starts with GS and then goes to the other R bikes at least a year afterwards.

    Wethead is Ok as such but why the totaltarian dogmatic decision by a few or for that one?
    It's a German bike but it's not 1939, whatever you do don't mention the war!!!!
    Put it to a vote with a deadline.
    Moderating is not forcing your views upon others, or is it?

    The hell - someone do more to your cherrios this morning than piss in them?

    T'were anything up for a vote I'd go for something referencing the spork. Or combine them like Wasser spork or would that be spork-wasser?

    Id wanted to make a reference to the fork tailed devil (Lockheed P-38) but couldn't quite get fork nosed devil to come out in German.

    I am sorry, Sir, to tell you that battle is over, and if you aren't a wethead, you lost.

    Don't believe me?
