WB Looks like a big out of control turd.

It is going to carve a rather large scar as it heads uncontrollably into the bush.

Just my opinion.

BTW - I just bought a new BMW, called Husqvarna. Nice to know BMW are still making good bikes.

A 450 version of that thing would have plenty of power, and come down under an un-ideal weight.

Huh?

I went through the promo 2x today and didn't see anything historically/factually Off.

PS: a bucket of chum on yall's heads for not mentioning the pristine Bus pulling dude's GS and Big Wheel GS for the kid

We Vanagon/Bus freaks have to get our props where we can

Thou shall not build a machine with the likeness of a human mind!
Hasn't anyone ever read Dune ?!? The machines will enslave humanity!

Were the developers chosen because they love airhead g-esses, for real or As propaganda?
So bmw could claim that. Or they are great developers and they still think the airhead cannot be topped?
I hope its the latter.
