Most impressive ride

Fellow BMW riders,

I just completed my first long trip from San Marcos, Texas to Brighton, Colorado, just north of Denver. Right at 2200 miles in total. I must say that this is the finest machine I have ridden to date. Cruise control, heated grips, did'nt think I would need such things. Was very glad I had them. It taught me what items I needed and the space required to properly carry. But back to the bike. My previous bikes were KTM 990 Adventure, one Kaw street rocket and many dirt bikes over the years, but this bike is no comparison to any of them. Kudos to BMW. I am now a bonafide believer in the product. If anyone is in the Central Texas area don't hesitate to drop a line for a ride!

Yes it is.

Just did 360 miles Sunday. I have said this multiple times, but it warrants it one more time --

"I want to publicly thank the inventor of Cruise Control"
