Hmmm...Finally a Harley with ABS-C, traction/stability control and Hill Assist; technology that BMW has had out in the field for years.

I was considering trading in my 14 Ultra Limited for a new 2020 Motor Co. road sofa - but a 1000-lb. brick with less horsepower, range, maneuverability and costing thousands more than a K1600GTL or K1600B (both of which are considerable lighter) means Im trading it in for a BMW.

The BMWs have electrically adjustable windshields, optional ride (performance) modes, multiple suspension profiles, adaptive headlights and separate GPS and entertainment systems that are not the PITA that the Harley Infotainment system has been for 5 years.

Ive owned Harleys for a long time but Im done.

Too little, too late, too costly. Again.

If anyone is a poser, it is the guy looking right back at you in the mirror.

My post was my opinion...after many years and bikes (AND miles).
If you cant deal with it Im sorry, but my opinion matters as much as yours.

Posers do seem to change bikes quite often. Do you get yourself a new leather jacket to go with them too?
