Has BMW completely nailed the modern rider's desires with their new R nineT? The sales figures certainly suggest so. It's fun, fast, handles, looks good, has character, is easy to customise, and doesn't cost upwards of £12,000. But does it do it for you?

Hello Snev

 I wondered when you would pop up, I thought you two were a couple. I'm suprised you didn't have some advice for BMW about their new bike.

Ah, freedom. It means so many different  things to us all. For me, being able to ride when and where I choose is part of it. The luxury of being able to pick and choose what I ride (money permitting, I ain't rich!). To be able to walk down the street, eat and drink where I choose if that's the case, to live my life the way I want while observing simple self imposed standards of behaviour to ensure MY freedom does not spoil that of others. It's a simple philosophy, but I'm a simple soul. Part of the freedom referred to on here is to disagree with others; that's a part of our nature. The rambling point I'm trying to make is that yes, we all have different views about a myriad of different things. That is what makes us who we are. If I don't like something, I'll stay away from it. If I am fortunate enough to be given a voice to express an opinion on the subject, I'll probably take it. This is how we evolve and improve, by taking little snippets from all over the place and either using it or discounting it. I can guarantee there will be people who read this and think "What is the daft c*^t on about?"

Actually, what am I on about??????

Oh yeah, bikes. Back in the room.................

good looks

The bike looks great but of course not everyones cup of tea.Also expensive but I think the name on the tank immediately put a lot of people off for some silly reason.

How anyone can say a boxer engine looks asthetically nice has a screw loose. Ugly. Even if you lost the boxer engine it looks dated. Not for me.

BMW should re concentrate on what it once did best..Building reliable tourers.

Not ones with components made out of milky bar wrappers.
