Another ugly bike from BMW. I am sure that in terms of performance, it will be a great bike, but BMW has to make an effort on the styling.

Nahh, we like our BMW bikes uuuugly, in a beautiful, function-before-form, quirky kind of way :lol2: :rofl: :rider:


It's like an acquired taste :trust: :loco: ...... I've heard these Germans even like hairy female legs...... :-P

I like it except for the headlight. The asymetrical look has run its course IMHO.

This is what happens when you let the engineers design the bike.... I bet it will be a great ride, just not great to look at. Fortunately, you don't have to look at the stove when you're pokin' the fire, as Pappy used to say.

Yesterday I sat on the F8GS at LoneStar in Austin.

It's perfect. It's big enough to comfortably run 85mph for a couple of hours. Yet, it's not so big as to be a pain-in-the-butt to whip around parking lots, red lights, and IQ-challenged automobilers.

Speak for yourself. :sun:

As for the F8R, looks just like a little brother to the K13R. And I do like the R :drool:

Not sure I see the point, but it's not bad for a naked bike. I'd get a F800GS before that one.
