I voted No because of the "this bike blows" wording. It only seemed right for a thread with the words "deposit" and "onan" in the title.

I'm surprised this hasn't generated more interest.

Mornin'

I was speaking to Howard Godolfin at the NEC bike show, a couple of weeks ago. He's the main man at BMW Motorcycles Warranty/Technical UK division & told me he'd just ordered one! Now, knowing him as I do, I'd suggest this is a very good recommendation, as he's never ordered a new model bike during it's first year of production! I reckon the 800 road bike's been used to test everything. A little like the R1200GS suffered all the grief in it's first year, yet all was fixed by the time that the R1200RT was launched.
