    If the bike fails to sell we could call it the Dud Head.

    Don't know what they sound like but - Thunderhead.

    If they are well muffled then you could call it the Distant Thunderhead

    I don't know anything about it. But based on appearances, I'd call it the PigHead. That thing looks like a pig to me.

    Looks like the big reveal happens tomorrow. Here's a screenshot of the BMW Motorrad USA website taken just before 5PM EDT 4/2:

    I'm keeping my wethead GS but I can see how others may really like these bikes (various configurations available).

    I watched him pull the cover off the production R18. I gotta say I like it. The design is really very nostalgic and in my opinion it is very well done. Will it sell? Time will tell. I think the 180 they say will be available will in fact sell out fairly quickly. Any /2 owner that then later bought a Rocket 3 ought to like this bike. YMMV of course.

    Sorry, I could not watch that. I don't know who BMW is marketing to, but it is definitely not me.

    Thank you, and just so people know, at this time, pre-orders are filled, they are taking names when they get more available
