    Looks like just the thing to ride few miles to the nearest diner/cafe.
    My favs are farther away than that.

    Right.. I test rode an RnineT a couple years ago and felt so naked and exposed on it. And nowhere to put my stuff.. lol. What if bad weather comes up? I like motorcycles to be practical and capable of actually traveling somewhere with my gear. Bikes that are just for short rides and/or posing don't really interest me and now that I'm retired I don't have enough money for impractical toys anymore, haha..

    I like the look. Makes a great showroom piece. I would prefer a R Nine T with some blacked out touches and old school looks for actual riding. Good on BMW for making this, I hope that the addition of all the EPA / NHTSA reflectors and catalyzers and signals don't wreck a very clean and original look. Also, a little less chrome would be good.

    I can't see how they can get an aircooled motor through the emissions laws. We'll just have to wait and see.

    That surely looks Harleyesque. Handlebar fairing? Top opening Harley bags? What Harleyoid will go on top of the gas tank?

    I thought the R9-T was air cooled

    Oh boy. I have to wonder what marketing activity produced the desire to produce yet another non-Harley cruiser into the market. The numbers I have seen would suggest this is a fools mission, but, I am 1/2 German, so I guess the folks at BMW must be right!

    I am also half German. Could that be why BMWs always light my fire?

    I am 25% English, but Brit bikes never caught my attention. However, I would not turn down a "cheap" Brough Superior.

    There are motorcycle owners, and there are motorcycle riders.
    And then there are those of us for whom motorcycling is an essential part of our journey - a way of life, and looking at it.

    Not air cooled like this.

    My little R 50 can beat that R 18 in cool any day!

    They are all air cooled. Sometimes the air cools metal. Sometimes the air cools both metal and oil in an oil cooler. Sometimes air cools metal and coolant in a radiator. But they are all air cooled.
