Interesting review of the variable valve 1250 boxer from BMW.

Ryan F9 certainly gives it the thumbs down but in a wonderfully dry way.

Where do they get the names for these colours?

Excellent review!  :152:
Titty bars aren't bad if you enjoy being sexually aroused without an outlet. Oh, and they're also convenient if you're in the mood for paying double the normal price for a drink. If I'm in the mood to be treated poorly while giving up large amounts of cash, I visit a BMW dealership

I find him irritating, however on this occasion he is a little more palatable .......  I don't know if that's because he's reviewing a GS  :007:

I test rode the 1200 gs and didn't like it. Hope to have a chance test ride at 1250 one.

Enjoyed the review... :001: Thanks.

This is a bloody great Bike....!

 Nicely reinforces most of my long standing prejudices about the brand.

If a bm gs was the only bike i could own/ride,i would cheerfully give up riding altogether,never rode a bike with so many things i really hated in over 40yrs of riding.
