  1. Do you find the R nine T is suitable for a 6ft guy, 190lbs. Looking at a used 2015 with 4k miles and not sure if the price offset is worth the risk of buying a used bike

  2. Very nice bike, it was my second choice. Most BMWs are styled like someone threw a bunch of pieces on a frame and where they stuck was the styling. This bike and the Urban are different to me in that they look good. My first choice which I have had for two years was the Triumph Thruxton R – looks great, handles and runs great. I did change the seat. I am very happy with my choice.

  3. If you get lucky and have a go to the old MT-01, you will experience a crazy crazy engine brake like an anchor!
    It would be great if you could make a video with that machine!

  4. Thank you very much for your thoughtful review. My question: what mods would you consider to make the bike more to your liking? Perhaps exhaust as you mentioned stock cans sound kind of buzzy?
