    A video of the Megamoto torquing its way up hill from Geiranger. Pace is not ballistic due to diesel spills from all the buses travelling up and down with sightseeing tourists. It's a great road with nice scenery :1drink

    Mine is now gone to New Mexico. To be replaced by a Ducati 1200 MTS or the new Diavel. I enjoyed the ride with you guys. Life is good!

    It's not as relaxing. It needs a brisker pace to work the stiffer chassis. Intoxicating ride, but I prefer the effortless pace of the MM when I spend 12 - 14 hours on the road.

    The more I ride my Megamoto the more I love it. It works incredibly well as a sport tourer with the relaxing ergos and effortless engine. I even find the seat ok for long rides.

    I agree with Eddie, I find all my trips are now 2-4 days with between 500-750kms per day. It's a great sport tourer, I love it. By the 4th day though my rear end is not so keen on it...

    Top Ten Cult Classics

    BMW HP2 Megamoto

    Why? One of the first signs that BMW had loosened its tie and started drinking in the morning. Powered by a highly tuned version of the fuel-&#8203;&#8203;injected, 1170cc, 8-&#8203;&#8203;valve Boxer engine, it is the most playful BMW ever built. Well, I say playful, playful like sporting a lamb chop waistcoat and having a game of &#8216;Hide and Seek&#8217; with a grizzly bear.

    + It is a BMW the Batman would ride

    &#8211; Short tank range. Loves expensive petrol

    Was this guy expecting to see a well tuned 1200cc engine to average less then 6.5l/100Km?!?!?!... or did he missed the 6th gear?!?!...:rofl
