Hi from downunder (Australia). Got to say I am a huge fan of the oil/air cooled horizontal twin engine. Over the years I have owned a 1980 R100RS, a 1998 R850R, a 1999 R1100S, a 2002 R1100S, a 2010 R1200RT (still owned) and a 2011 R1200R (still owned). I have owned a number of Harley Davidson motorcycles which were somewhat enjoyable, but must say I missed the engineering of BMW. There is something fairly amazing about boxer twins and their ability to cover distance with a minimum of fatigue.

The Nine T ticks all the boxers as a bespoked motorcycle, up until yesterday I had my name down for a Norton, once I saw the images of the Nine T I knew I had to have one.

Now it is a matter of waiting for delivery...................yours frustratingly

Hello - My domain is Boulder, Colorado. Living at the foothills of the Rocky Mountains I am blessed with hundreds of miles of perfect sporting motorcycle roads. We are also gifted with even more miles of off-road, adventure riding. I have been waiting, in vain, for Moto Guzzi to introduce something to replace my 2008 1200 Sport. Something exactly in-line with the new BMW nineT. I have every hope of securing a nineT by next spring.

Just joined today. Completed an ABATE (MSF) course a few weeks ago, to brush up on riding, not having ridden in over 30 years. Old bikes I had, Honda 305 Scrambler, '64 Bonneville, and BMW R69s. LONG ago. Was planning on buying a 2014 Bonneville to get back into leisure riding, then I saw the R Nine T. Our dealer had 2 allocated, and today I put the deposit down on the 2nd one. Pretty expensive, and advanced bike for my first in over 30 years. Just know, over the next year or two, I would still be desiring one, so popped for the deposit. Now, I just have to remind myself to stay off the throttle while getting used to such an awesome bike.

welcome to the forum and welcome back to riding.
you're making a very good choice by going with the NineT! what other bikes have you looked at?

I had it boiled down to two. 2014 Bonneville, due to its low center of gravity and 17 inch wheels, and a Ducati Monster. Problem with the monster, it didn't fit me right. First hard bump on the road, and I would be singing soprano from the tank in front of the seat. I really do like the Bonneville, with its retro looks, and the fact I won't be riding from Indiana to Montana any time soon. However, I've always been a BMW fan, but their newer bikes are either too tall, too dressed, or too racy looking. (and I've always been a boxer fan). When I saw the T, I chewed it over in my mind for a bit, knew they were only getting allocated two, and decided that was the one. I could buy 2 bonnies for the price of one T. If I didn't get one now, I knew I would later. Have they actually posted a price yet? The dealer said he believes the MSRP is going to be between $16,000 and $17,000. One downside I see with the T? Massive electronics, costly repairs. But the ABS and a hundred other things swung me over. BTW, I have owned BMW cars since 1969, and thats the same complaint I have on the newer cars. At least the T doesn't have iDrive
