For some reason it look so much better in those pictures in real life situations than it does in BMW's brochure photos. If only there was a way to shave the side tines off of the "spork" the beak would be perfect. Oh well, I'm sure that there are people that like the angular F-117 look. Other than that man that bike looks awesome!

How do you like the Tourance Next tires?

I've got the Touratech beak extender on back order for that very reason

No, I don't think so, the whole of the muffler is replaced when fitting the HP/Akra can, and they(AKRA) make no mention of it containing a cat.

Does TE stands for Touring Edition? I've seen TE mentioned before, even RichBMW has his registration same.

Lucky bastard.
If the bikes ever got stolen, I know it was you ��

Our neighbour on one side is a policeman with a police dog (not kidding), the neighbours on the other side once called the police (while we all were on vacations) because they thougt our mower got stolen.. although we only put it inside for winter.

Yes, it's just a UK marketing thing,3 trim levels standard, enduro and touring edition,with the TE having the majority of the options applied.

So if you want cruise control you have to go all the way with the options.



The new Guzzi might call me instead.

Cruise is standalone $350 option, if that's how you want it.
