Well, BMW finally came out with official information on the new F800ST, which now is actually a GT. I'm interested in this bike for very different reasons than the Striple. If I were to get it, I would very seriously think of keeping the SV as a fun bike.
AND, as if I wasn't confused enough already, this shows up:
Some...okay...many of us will consider this fugly, but form follows function in my book, and if it all just flat works, that's the true definition of beauty.
Hopefully, the folks over at Twisted Throttle will be furiously working on a pannier/luggage rack solution for the newest Striple. There are really only a couple of occasions per year where I would like to "tour." Other than those, it's just commuting and fun riding, but having it and not needing it is better than needing it and not having it.
What to do...what to do...? Very happy no one is holding a gun to my head right now.
