Those bags can’t detach with the lights integral to them. I like the looks.

not my cuppa tea either. I like the touring/GT wrapper around that motor though.

From what I understand, the bike is literally speed limited to about 101mph! I kid you not.

if speed limited to 101 then save some weight and removes gears 3-6

Winner!

Sometimes I just wonder, do they get they drunkest visitor to Octoberfest to choose colors, and color names?

A while back, the mothership foisted Mauve on us...
couldn't give them away.

Nope.
No way.
No how.
What are they thinking?


If my mind wanders, should I follow it?

LOL .... while I hated the Mauve, Aquamint and that other R1200RT color that was a blue green blend ... I like this gold color! But then like most things motorcycling it is a personal thing.

The bags look like the Bagger bags that do not come off as Smoky noted. And why would they limit the speed to 101? Not that would pose a problem for me as I have only gone over 100 once but still seems odd for a BMW!
