I think that is called an opinion Jim, regardless of how you say it.
Well said FTC.
We all have those here and I enjoy reading all of them.
Most are well informed and based on personal experience from years of riding and enjoying motorbikes. I think this applies to Jim's comments.
Remember this though, it can always be said:
"That's your opinion. My opinion of your opinion is, it's wrong."
no doubt Andy will bring out the plaid-lined Roadcrafter for the closeted hipster right after he launches flamed bedecked Darien with conchos. Actually, if you want to see some interesting real-world dual sports, just hang outside his shop in Duluth sometime. You get some interesting bikes pulling in there few of which seem to be
headed towards a Starbucks anytime soon.....
"just stating the facts as I see them."
And god forbid someone cares about aesthetics. I had an older BMW, it was nice. Some of the newer ones just look bizarre, with a forced attempted to look modern. Or a gigantic "GS" decal so the whole world knows you have a roadcrafter with custom beergut expansion. 70s-style retro motorcycle look is popular not because of some hipster BS, but because it looks good. Some designs are timeless. Porsche 911s look very close to what they looked like 20 years ago, is anyone calling them hipster-mobiles?
No, they are yuppie-mobiles. Now we have to decide which is worse. These important decisions are never ending are they?
I know you guys are joking about 'stich, but I can't think of motogear company that's less likely to follow fads
Yes, just joking about the 'stitch. The company and the products are great. I do not own one, but understand the appeal.
Ironically, not following style has become an iconic de-facto style for a certain crowd. :)
Same thing with Porsche (at least the pre-Cayenne Porsche) outside the box utilitarian becomes classic style and gets associated with a particular crowd.
Unit Garage will release an ohlins kit for the scrambler and my guess is that it would fit here as well. https://www.instagram.com/p/BMtDK-cgtFG/?taken-by=unitgarage
Well, the price is lower than I thought it may be, so I'll get a test ride, and see if this'll be my next addition to the stable.
Exactly. When I saw THAT I was pretty smitten. They nailed it with that concept. This feels like a halfhearted version of it. Set phasers to like, not lust.

Are the specs on the 9-Scrambler and GS-Urban the same? Would be a disappointment if suspension travel is as un-scrambler and un-Gelände as on the 9Scrambler.
Not that one would need 300mm WP's on such a bike, but 50 more mm f&r would give a very different feel.
Accordng to the tech spec on BMW's site yes, the Urban GS basically is a Scrambler with a different paint job and a high front fender
The seat height on the urban is 30mm higher than the scrambler. I'm sure there will be a few other small differences between the two.
With the Scrambler one can select a 30 mm higher seat so may be that is standard on the UrbanGS? The suspension is 125/140 mm front/rear on both.
Then i'm disappointed. Love the looks, but I prefer not to pay premium for a fake.
Seems like a poor effort in Spandau. A longer shock and a pair of longer fork tubes... not asking for the impossible.
I think I like this...
I'd buy this bike IF it had an 8.5 gallon fuel tank. Gimme a Dakar version and I'm there. My funday trip ride is about 360 miles round trip. I'd like enough range to do that without refueling. That's just me. I hate stopping to refuel.
Looks actually much like the front fork of the Lac Rose.
Looks like an interesting improvement for the ninet's!
I couldn't find the price, do you how where I can find the price?
