IMO it's the best of, but that's not a sentiment shared by new buyers if I'm to believe various BMW dealerships. I had a difficult time finding mine, no problem finding the Classic version, but mine - not so much. What makes it so? Is it the do everything but nothing well? Could it be the lack of protection the RT offers or the off road capability of the GS? I like naked bikes and with a proper windscreen there's plenty of protection, it's lighter than a RT with most everything else the same, it is better at the twisties than a GS and lower to the ground for stability, and it can go off road if need be. Your thoughts?
