Decision Matrix



Does you want to ride a motorsickle?

If yes proceed to next question.  If no whathehell you doin' here?


next question:
Does you want to ride a Harley Davidson motorsickle with lots of vroom vrroom noises or is you ok with any good motorsickle?  Of if you some poor lame ass sumbeech just any motorsickle at all?  Even, y'know, a Sportster?

If you's wants a Harley (a real one, not a Sportster) go to next question.  If anythin' else at all, whathehell you doin' HERE at this here SEE-VEE-OH my gawd Harley Davidson motorsickle site?



Does you want a motorsickle to help you get 20 or 30 something year old tail or is you just like to ride your motorsickle and is too old to worry about tail no more?

If you is the latter you mights think about that BMW motorsickle.  If you is not the latter and you wants to ride more than you's motorsickle, and still thinks you can, you needs you self a shiny Harley Davidson motorsickle with some loud ass pipes.

Alan didn't you blow the motor on your Bagger? 

I'm sure you've had it on the dyno.....post up your dyno sheet so we can see what reality is.
They just put a new crate motor in so no dyno. Will say my "butt dyno" says fast af

Just had a look at the BMW at a dealer in Vancouver....just out of the crate.....91 HP....dunno where 160 came from.....cylinders sticking out the sides look weird.....seating position seems ok ....stereo seems to sound good on a radio station....the controls are way different, but, I am sure one would get used to them......then had to go catch a ferry......will be looking at them again...maybe

They only had a black one.....sold the other colour a week ago

Factory reverse and stereo upgrades are cool.

Did not even discuss prices

No salesmen on site when I was there.....finance guy was being helpful

And this is important!!!!>>>>>>>>>>they are rated for towing!!!!....more info to come

You’re looking at the wrong BMW.  The K1600B & Grand America are BMWs 160 hp baggers.  You’re apparently looking at the R1800, which is a two cylinder horizontally opposed twin.  The K1600 is an inline six.

I demoed a K1600B twice.  What a great bike.  It’s torque monster, quick shifter, reverse, heated grips & seat, electronic adjustable suspension, variable ride modes, cornering ABS, etc.  I would best describe the power as a Ducati Diavel, but in bagger form.  I came close to buying one, but BMW had a recall on the transmission, which caused a “stop sell” for months.  Also, the dash/instrumentation was dated and due for an upgrade, but now with Covid causing supply chain problems, who knows when that will happen.
