Good bike, previously owned V50III (when less than half my age!, Honda XBR500, Honda CBX250, Honda CB1, Guzzi V11 sport, Guzzi Cali Titanium, Ducati GT1000 and then the Norge. For the two-up riding I do with my wife it is great. I wanted a real motorbike (air-cooled engine) but with comfort and reasonable build quality (huge improvement). Clocks are at the wrong angle to see easily and Sat Nav doesn't charge on the bike (dealer couldn't fix) but basic package is cheaper than BMW for same spec (everything you could wish for is standard on GTL) with more character and nice, easy handling. Engine has plenty of torque.
I do miss the 12v socket from the Cali Titanium though for easy battery topping up in winter.
All in all, give this a chance - it's really good if you hate the arm ache from all the ugly paint crotch rockets that have zero charisma or style.
