Being of advanced years......
I tend to think the cutting edge of the website, is what BMW gets by hiring "stylists" to design the look of their site (and their bikes too?) and then receive awards from "style judges"
I would be surprised if the "stylists" and webmasters were real motorcyclists. If they were, maybe the modern BMW (and lots of other brands, too) side cases would actually accomodate something as universal and practical as a laptop computor bag!
But then I still own two airheads, both with the old, square, unstyled side cases. I had to buy a smaller laptop, and smaller bag for it to fit in my oilhead side case. Test fitting the same in the LT was a challenge, but the LT did barely pass my "computer-commuter" test.
Stylists? Bah! Form over function, same as with an "Award winning" website that doesn't provide large, clear, well lighted photos of the product for consumers more concerned with how the product will function for them, rather than how it makes them "feel".
I've wanted to say that for a long time. I feel better now.
