240Dog: The books on the shelf put the K-bike (2valve) at 90 hp, or just under, so not quite half again the poke. They also tell me that the M-B has just a touch more hp than the baby Ducati that is my current daily rider - the Italian having around 63 hp.

Around town and through traffic, we allow "lane sharing" here on the freeways (I still think of 'em as expressways), I don't miss the additional 200 lbs. that the Beemer had on the Duc. Though my wallet said it had to go, I was not terribly motivated to put the BMW up for sale as I got attached to it. Very thankful that the M-B swap appeared.
