BMW want to put a bear trap right there

Custom?

It is an offense to the English language to call a mass-produced motorcycle a custom.

Of course, to some of us “custom” brings up memories of the Japanese 4 ruining perfectly good standard motorcycles with goofy seats, handlebars, and excessive fork rake.

Stick a fork in it?

Yes, when have inverted forks been called “conventional”?  While most new higher-end sport-bikes, SuperMotos, and streetfighters have inverted forks, the majority of bikes still come with telescopic forks with stanchions at the top and sliders at the bottom.
