I just finished doing a full tune up on my BMW R1150GSA and took it out for a ride after 3 weeks riding only the Himalayan... so much power!!! the BMW pulls like a bull. I had forgotten what 85 mph felt like, and how fast I could reach it. It also reminded me why I am selling it and why I am riding the Himalayan now: the BMW is too heavy, too big, too cumbersome, and I am not a confident rider on it. The Himalayan might be slower, but it's easier to maneuver, lighter, and much more forgiving. Horsepower isn't everything. Some people get surprised I am selling a R1150GSA to replace it with a Himalayan, but I have no regrets. Both are excellent bikes in their own right, but I am a better rider on the Royal Enfield.
