    If you talk to the guys that own these most say they are very unreliable in
    the long run.

    My local BMW dealer should thank you. Good concise summary of the the bike
    and options. After much debate, I watched your video and decided to get
    one. So far I only rode it home from the dealership and got stuck in stop
    and go traffic, but I love it already. As you said, great balance and
    agile. In many ways it is easier to handle and ride than my 2013 BMW F700GS
    that a reluctantly traded in.

    Tanks you for the review. Good bike and upgrade for R1200RT.
    BUT: Awesome UGLY front is really UGLY, not love it.
    Front vulture-type like K1600GT. Really not like it
    I have owned 8 BMW since my first R90S (I am older)
    Sure i not purchase it.
    I am a fan of BMW and i am desolate.

    Ive had a love affair with the boxer for quite some time. I ride a Concours
    14(GTR 1400) currently and love it. But love this bike as well. Hope to
    reward myself in retirement with one.

    Excellent review. I have a K but this R might make me switch.

    My previous ride is a 2008RT which I’d humbly thought was the finest all
    ’round bike I’d ever ridden. With the 2008 getting some long miles on it,
    I decided it was time to upgrade and put a down payment on the new RT.
    March 20th, I was the first customer to ride off my local dealer’s lot with
    this bike and, not having ridden it prior, I’m thrilled to say it has
    exceeded all possible expectations. Strong! Heavier but lighter. Nimble
    and quick. MORE comfortable. If even possible; a better fairing setup.
    More responsive… everything refined by leap years.
    Sadly the bike is on a hard recall right now due to sub-contracted ESA rear
    suspension. BMW is doing all they can to make things right, but right now,
    all I want is to ride this bike.

    already read or heard. Thank you for your proper review.
