    I don't suppose reliability is one of the "as good" factors.

    Now where's that kick a man while he's down smiley?

    Woah, I missed this. Are you saying BMW has finally come out with a reliable motorcycle? And by reliable, I mean one guaranteed NOT to break in a predictable manner? :evil Interesting...

    I tend to think that BMW has been trending the other direction (As Larry's post suggests) with build and design quality. Perhaps this bike will change all that since BMW is starting to use proven technology (proven by just about everyone else) in this bike. Wet clutch, integrated transmission, integrated alternator, and water cooling specifically.

    Also interestingly, in the Husky sales press release, BMW states that its focusing on urban mobility and e-bikes (whatever that is) and that's why the Husky line was sold. This is strange for a company whose number 1 selling bike is the GS.

    I think James was just busting Larry in the chops for spending so much time with his Austrian honey badger and ignoring the Bavarian milkwagon.

    I had a truly classic moment earlier. I stopped in Crawford to make a couple calls. Just sitting on bike. One of the calls started taking longer so I just let the bike lean to the left to rest on the kickstand.

    Yup. You got it. The kickstand that I hadn't bothered to put down.

    Damn this thing is heavy.
