I do appreciate the hard work it takes to conduct this forum. It's been a invaluable resource for those of us who've got this rare bird of a bike. I use mine for commuting a lot. I do a lot of urban writing and kind of grocery getting now that I have my givi bags and tail trunk. My brothers who are BMW aficionados comment that my bike has as much storage and capacity as their bikes do and I can still hold highway speeds especially in South Dakota where the interstate speeds are 80 miles an hour. I could sing praises of a thing all day I'm sure you've heard it all.
