WOW - my GW was only 903.......

5. ## Vince says....

Unladen weight, incl. 90% fuel kg/lb:

319/703 (without pannier)
348/767 (incl. pannier, topcase)'

That 1,232 figure must be GVWR... rider+passenger+gear.

so... 150-ish less than a Goldwing.

6. ## Video

7. more video here of the press conference and other stuff

8. In several of the photos, you can see lock cylinders toward the bottom of the inner panels of the fairing -- near the rider's shins. Any guesses as to what they are for? gloveboxes in the lowers? In the frame side tubes? Assess to the flux capacitors?

It's gonna be a looooong 6 months before the bike starts showing up in the flesh ...

9. ## Lust

let's see, I have about \$10k in my /6, \$21k in my GS.
If I ever went back to a full faired tourer the new GTL would be it.
It is a great looking motorcycle.

I just promised my bride of 40 years a new suv, maybe she would rather a GTL?

10. ## Great pics here

11. What appear to be pivoting air vents under the ends of the dash vents are nice touches, too.

12. Still don't like the trunk - hopefully it will grow on me.

Like the red paint.

Does it seem big

Can't wait to see one in person.

14. ## Full BMW Press Package

See BMW site (link below). It's the official press package, along with links to lots of pics and 20+ minutes of video of both models.
