Re: I'm falling in love...

NO THANKS....not for me. Getting too much of a "crotch rocket, racing bike look. Plus...my SO doesn't like the "high sitting pos" on the LT and the 1600 looks even higher. I prefer the LT much more. Just my opinion....

Re: I'm falling in love...

I can't wait to see what the first guy pays for his valve adjustment. Looks like it might be tough.

Re: I'm falling in love...

We don need no steenkin wings!

Seriously, factory engine protection bars and saddlebag protection strips are accessories. The engine bars don't look like they'll do much to save the front tupperware, though. Of course, the lighter weight and the considerably lower reach to the ground should help minimize the need for the wings in the first place -- we'll see when folks start taking them out in the real world.

Re: I'm falling in love...

I'm satisfied.
I just got my LT and I love it. I would not trade it for anything else even another BMW. I have seen the 1600 and it did not appeal to me. The trunk seems out of place. But the whole design does not have that stately look. The only thing I would take off of it is the head light technology.
Everybody else I hope you enjoy it and get all you like about it.
ride safe

Re: I'm falling in love...

I like the looks of it. I'll have to wait til they are several years old and the bottom has dropped out on the resale value, just like my current LT. SO in 3 - 4 years, they should be about $9 - $10K, right? (THere should be a cynical smilie right there).

Don't get me wrong, I love my LT, but the resale on it is for crap compared to the other large barges. And the look of the new one does appeal to me. I bought my 03 LT because it looks like something George Jetson would own. Still does, even more than the new 1600.

Hopefully no mechanical issues like the final drives, etc. on the new ones.

Can't wait to see them start showing up for real.
