Thank Halbie,

I just got back from a 40 mile jaunt on her and the ride and motor is incredibly smooth, it's like riding in a 1970's Cadillac or something. Really cool to be able to set the cruise and then put your feet on the floor boards and just enjoy the ride. What impresses me most is just how quick it is, it gets up to 80 mph lickity Split, it does it so smoothly that is deceiving, you just get on it and then look down and it's like wow! I better slow down.  And it really handles quite well for such a big bike, I'm really liking it!  Can't wait to take it on a long trip up to Colorado or somewhere with lot's of mountains.

You know, that's a great idea. I'll have to put the Sierras on my short list.  :028:

I have and it's cool that it harkens back to and looks a lot like their original motorcycle produced the R32. Man the jugs on thing are huge!

A few pics of my BMW R1200RT, Like most of us we all need about 5 bikes to cover all base's . My RT does all i want when touring Europe , the Z900rs is what i call my street bike every day stuff..I have a KTM 450 for the winter when out dirt biking while the others are tucked away in the garage. Just need a classic bike and a performance bike to complete the stable... when i win the lottery !!
