    I agree with the latter but no longer the former. Clearly longer rides and touring are what the majority of MOA members are interested in. BMW riders present a much more complex combination of ridding styles and interests.
    I am seeing some pretty myopic opinions here. BMW riders run a wide gamut. Sure the young rider with little cash is likely on something else, certainly not an RT. If you look outside the touring segment of MOA and BMW there is a much larger market that is active. Just look at the continued sales of the "premium" bikes that BMW sells, whether it is naked, race, road, or off-road.

In general, we don't submit to peer pressure to wear black from head to toe like the pirates do. It's got nothing to do with image, it's all about function - and common sense.

    Ride any brand bike you want, just don't tell me what motivates me or try to tell me why I dress the way I do when I ride.
