    Your Husky must have thankfully been ADR compliance plated then Mr Mark?
    It’s possible its just an agricultural bike issue too I guess?
    Our nearest Yamaha rep I spoke with over the phone upon nearly placing the order for their AG200F said although it had all the bells and whistles mentioned above it wasn’t ADR approved for full road registration, only reccy or farm registration allowed on their model.
    Same scenario I’m lead to believe too for the Kawasaki Stockman 250 and also the Suzuki Trojan 199?
    Maybe it’s their lower AG gearing holding them back which wouldn’t allow them to keep up on arterial roads at 100kmph?
    Honda on this new release XR190L appear to have kept a low 1st for paddock crawling without fanning the clutch yet stretched out the top ratios to hopefully keep up out on the highways

    I find BMW's are like any bike, You Either Like Them or You Don't lol.

    I have generally always liked Touring Bikes, My 2nd bike was a Kawasaki GTR1000, then a 10 year brake before I got the R1150RT in 2016. I had always liked the R1150RT's, but did look at a FJR1300 n 2016 as well, as I've been told by many with RT history that the FJR1300 is even better . . . but the AM/FM Radio of the RT swayed me back to the BMW. I do find the RT solid, stable confident bike on the road . . . so the FJR does make me wonder.

    Been asked about maintenance cost of the BMW a couple of times, but the internet now days offers up so much information, thanks to YouTube it has given me the confidants to do all my own maintenance and repairs on the RT which has help greatly, and I generally work on the theory if it's running nice, don't touch it lol.

    Have known Santa for 2 years now, I see him 4 to 6 times a year at charity bike events, He's a big figure and is loved by all who knows him. He's does a lot of charity stuff and treats me well each time I see him, so generally get on well with him.

    Bought this beast a month ago. Suzuki C109RT Boulevard. 109 CI or 1800 cc. Unregistered when I got it, needed new tyres & a tidy up. Finally got it on the road a week ago.
    Fitted with a Gman EFI controller & Timing Retard Eliminator.

    I had a very similar R100RT for a while. Bought it when the K series were first released. Prices of twins plummeted for a shor time & I got it for a song. Sadly it dodn't excite my youthful (at the time) self, & I sold it after 5 months & a trip around around France. By then the prices had gone back up, & I did quite well on the sale & bought a Mk2 Guzzi Le Mans. These days I'd probably opt for an RT (or RS) over a Le Mans .... easier on the wrists!

    @Cuppa It's a 1985 model (the first of the mono shock) and I have had it for 17 years. It was fairly ordinary when I purchased it and initially I spent a lot of time on it by pulling it apart and refurbishing it from scratch. It has been parked up for a couple of years because I just have not had the time to ride it, but last year I did some sorely needed maintenance on it - took it for a test ride - and fell in love with it all over again. It goes very well and is a pleasure to ride.

    Not rigid. It is a soft tail with an airbagged rear.
    Rear end rises up 2-3 inches from stance in photos
