I started out with a R75, Then a R60. Went to a R100/7 with a side car. Got a K100LT and now have a sidecar from the R100/7 on her. Last Sept my wife, Jann bought me a R1200CM for my retirement. She said"this is my last bike."
I have read a lot of negative on BMW building a cruiser.
When age and phyiscal abilty carch up with you or you are short and need a easy bike to ride, the cruiser is the way to go.
I have 3600 on the bike and the riding season has just started.
