I visited the local Beemer dealer in November.They had a 1600B on the floor. I was a bit underwhelmed.
Lifting that bike off the stand is a chore, the front end felt very heavy. The bags are small, the exhaust tips are massive, volleyball size. The overall appearance was just, meh.

I really liked the r1200rt and had a nice demo with the rep. What a finely crafted machine. I would give this bike serious consideration but I'm put off by the many discussions of high maintenance cost / accessories costs and the rep who owns one stated the tire life on the rear is 5-6k.
