I for one would love to see Motus succeed with their company and their bikes. Can't wait to see one in the flesh and try it on for size.

Went to my local dealer to look at the 2014 K1600 sport. I asked him how the new RT's were doing. He said every one of his allocation was presold. They are very good looking bikes.

These are all intriguing. $1200 for an escort or the Bel :eek1 seems like a lot of money. The 8500 ci regular or plus seems like the sweet spot. Did you guys install them yourselves?

Extended Warranties- are they worth it?

Ordinarily I consider them to be a waste of money. But certain bikes, particularly those with increasingly complicated electronics, make me nervous.
