Dammit I'd never live it down.
 
ok I'll admit it I was a roundel bashing ass.

f me running this thing snaps. :eek1


If that responds in forward momentum the way it revs I'm going to be in a real tough spot.

my god they might have finally got it right. :huh

Wait. Wait. The thugs on here will tear it to shreds. Even if they did.

It should with the new intake and exhaust design. Plus the 125 BHP is nice. I think the main reason it sounds like that is due to the wet clutch design. The big flywheel, clutch disc and pressure plate are gone and that will allow for quicker throttle response in itself. Adding 15 BHP won't hurt either.

I like my dry clutch oil cooled boxer :D

Hey Mark Twain... don't expect the US version to sound like that.

European enviornmental noise standards are more stringent than the US

Damn that sounds good, just think what the aftermarket goodies could do for that thing!

Schlug 12-25-2012 08:23 PM

Jeexus I hope this tool doesn't start coming round here now.

Oh, so rich.

First, BMW actually is successful at WSBK, despite your predictions. Now this ignominy, a GS you might like.

Put some pepper on that crow, 'flug. It'll taste better.

Yup, way way way (of the chart) more strikt, europe makes harleys sound like 50cc mopets.

well I'm a long way from buying one but again if that thing pulls like it revs it's got slingshot written all over it. with some TKC's on it the roost in dirt would make an XT 500's seem trivial.

I....could be persuaded...

I liked mine. In hindsight I blame my meltdown on Max's service managers advice to swap the block instead of fixing it. I never should have listened to him. From there my anti roundel mind knew no bounds (still does in some regards) and I admit I was a bit of an ass. Nobody fit the 1150GS like I did that bike fit me like a glove.

As far as them being successful at WSBK if they'd have done something on their own it might be meaningful but as they ran their mouths for years about their bikes being fast when they were 50mph slower than the bikes from japan and then went the if you can't beat them join them route. Time marches on and I'm thinking this waterhead or whatever they call it is a real gem and might finally be the upright seating street legal close your eye's you're on a big motocross bike without the pain and it even rips thing the world (or at least me) has been looking for. I could buy an awful lot of Nikon with what this will cost so it's a pipe dream but I'd still like to ride one.

Well, they've managed a couple wins but I wouldn't call that success, yet especially with their budget.

The water cooled GS looks interesting but I would give them a year to find all the issues the clutch and transmission are going to have before I bought one. BMW has a poor record with wet clutches and transmissions. The GS design looks like it has all sorts of interesting ways to go wrong when the end user has it.
