History
Ordered it untested online while still in Germany, for delivery in TX.
Saw the new model at the Frankfurt bike show back in 2008. Holy moly!

In 28 years of riding, I had never owned a “performance street“ bike before, only Japanese mid-size Adventure thumpers, and my 1150GSA, but this looked too tempting to forget. What an engine!!!

And look at this mod: those ugly ears just recently had to make space for some fantastic tiny, but super-bright Kellermanns!
