Now, that is a nice bike Chris.   :)  If only BMW made them like that nowadays, I'd be sorely tempted to come back to the fold.

I'll be intrigued to see how Tom gets on to which bike is at the top of the food chain.... these two currently fight it out at the top of ours the one at the back is a GT.

Hopefully the only update for a while, new levers:



I popped in to get the charging cable and mentioned the clutch lever reach being suited to a big German hand. Bam. I had such a nicer ride home, everything feels better now.

The K levers are both adjustable for span but the S only has that on the throttle. So you see my dear fellow I had no choice. I had no choice!

Hahaha you're supposed to read between the lines! And the words and the letters! And above and around them too!

As for next year, probably still the K as how can I carry my... Monopoly board and commemorative lead figurines on the S?!
