Ohh, I actually really like that, even if it is a photochop.

I was down at the BMW dealer in Kaiserslautern the other day and one of the sales reps took me around to the shop and showed me their first water-cooled GS. The heads were noticeably bigger than the standard boxer heads. BTW, I arrived in country about six weeks ago and my 07 R12R arrives next week. Still too cold and wet to ride but it's never too early to start polishing for spring riding. The winding roads through forests are built for the R12R, just like my Audi A6 with twin turbos is built for the autobahn. We cruised to Frankfurt a couple of weekends ago, did 110mph for a long stretch and still had cars passing me like I was standing still.

Love that driving in that part of Germany. If you get a chance, go up the A3 to Bonn/Koln ... did Bonn -> Frankfurt in 43 minutes in a 748 when they first came out. Would love to ride my bike through there as well, as the roads are WONDERFUL.
