Looking around i found pictures of them. I have an 1150 "R" currently, and might be more inclined to go for another "R" as opposed to an "RT" on second thought.
Opt for a set of bags, and see what windshields are available. I like the more naked front end, as I do more [warm] weather riding,than cold. And rain doesn't bother me so much. Besides that I do not care for radio, etc. I prefer bags, decent shield, heated grips, and a throttle lock.
At the NYC IMS I asked one of the MAXBMW staff if they thought he retro boxer would be out in time for riding season. He said to his knowledge not until the end of the year. I guess we'll know when BMW decides we need to know.
What? No Dover White or Daytona Orange in the line up?

Not your father's BMW.
I tried to find my original post of the Lo Rider concept press release but no luck.
The 'concept' was a two part deal. BMW built a model for the Milan show and released all sorts of concept drawings at the same time.

The second part of the concept was the idea of selling the Lo Rider through a mass customization process. Buyers would be able to customize the core bike (Boxer engine/frame/telescopic front fork) by selecting seating, pipes, lights, fenders etc from a list of options creating their own bike.
Nothing happened until maybe now...

I hope the NY Times and Detroit Free Press have it right, have insider information from a real BMW source and not mixing promotional material for the 90yr anniversary bikes up with two custom shops in Europe bringing out their own version of Lo Rider. There is a Bulgarian shop that has an aggressive bobber based on the theme. The second shop built a direct knock off of the BMW show bike. It originally had the solo saddle but the builder did not like the resulting ride position. The built a second, two up, saddle pictured in some of the original options. IIRC they alluded to wanting to do a limited run for sale starting by the fall of the year.
Pass the mustard and UP THE REVOLUTION!
