All lower 48 states plus Alaska on the K13GT in two weeks . . .

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Re: BMW Announces New Solo RT

I've tried to decide what will happen during acceleration and braking on these.

2018 R1200RT 3,200 miles, 2004 R1150RT 188,100 miles, 1991 K100LT 128,700 miles, 1982 R100RT 106,900 miles
Total 426,900 BMW miles

The cheapest thing on a BMW is the nut that connects the handlebars to the seat.

Acceleration: Back of your scone smacks into the ground as the thing fades into the sunset.
Braking: Face plant. A smile with many missing teeth.
