And the baby girl Magna
The baby girl, I fixed up and I just gave to my riding partner and friend Cricket, she hasn't picked it up yet, but soon.
i don’t know if their bikes are that way or not, but I’ll never buy one regardless.
I also prefer the simpler more analog bikes so I don’t have to worry about any of the unneeded electronics going bad. Dials on the piggy back shocks work just fine for adjusting pre-load and rebound. I don’t need a button for it or a screen to monitor it. Just one more thing to go bad.
If you want a luxury sport touring bike, it doesn’t get any better than a BMW 1600 tho! It’s just not my preference.
For starters , this is a bike for taller people . I am 5.9 and cut not but barely put the very end of my toes on the floor . That alone is a no go for me , but looking at the rest of the bike , it has now a lot more plastic to reduce weight (a lot of plastic indeed) and the overall look of that much plastic is , at least to me , what gives the bike a cheap appearance .
I was not impressed at all . The mini windshield is just for looks because i cannot imagine that minuscule thing covering any wind at all .
I guess that the BMW is just following the same philosophy ... lots of plastic , very tall seating position , yada yada . and if, with so many electronics , anything malfunctions , it is going to be a costly enterprise , specially after the warranty expires .
I agree with Poseidon in that the possibility of things going bad is huge .
It is a sad situation to think that on a bike like that you really need to think seriously on the cost of maintenance and repairs that cut very well amount to a lot of money .
