Cycle World magazine out!
I got my July Cycle World in the mail today.
A very nice article on all the new BMWs, titled "German Renaissance". A lot of good said about all of them. The new F800s look good! They did a really strange balancing trick on them, a third connecting rod 180 deg. out of phase, driving a rocking arm in the lower half of the engine!
Also, the new GT got "Best Sport Tourer" in the 10 Best bikes of the year. They said that even if they had gotten the FJR with it's not yet available "AE" push button shift, it probably would not have mattered.
The LT lost out to the GW this year.
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.
EX: '01 Black LT, BAT BYKE (Totaled at 110,000 miles)
IBA SS, BB, BBG, 10/10ths.
No bike now, but maybe in the future.
