There is a stupidly large internet community of BMW riders.

I am sold on them - their high cost of entry pays you back for the good experiences. I demo rode a K1200rs back in 2001 and wow....slick, smooth, powerful, refined....all that engineering complexity (they had ABS on bikes in the 80's) adds up to a great machine.

the downside- a technological thing like that needs expensive maintenance. Unless you buy an old airhead (pre-1985?) - then you can do everything with a leatherman =)
