Its Karma, If you are critical of some one elses research you will get caught in a mistake.

From the original announcement, i have become convinced that this may be an orphan bike. I have posted my reasons and taken the heat.
I don't want to argue about it, as I feel it is more likely now. It may happen faster than I thought.

I have done a lot of research, not because I want to be an internet expert, nor would I rather do this than riding, but because I may buy one.

What an opportunity to get a good cheap bike. I wanted to know what the differences were compared to the BMW versions for future parts. Turns out there is a lot different, including Sachs forks and Martelli is a typo or a fine apple cider.

I need to look at parts list and wait for the official decision.
