I read about this bike for the first time around the end of last week and have been in love with it since. It's hard to beat the look of a naked air-cooled BMW.

Love the S1000RR forks, but don't care for wire wheels at all. The configurable subframe is cool but looks like BMW did away with R1200R's ability to hang panniers and top cases.

I almost went with an R1200R, instead of the S3R. Might still end up with one eventually.

IM going to do this bike, but S3R stays.

If you don't need luggage, then the better suspension makes this one classy cafe racer.

The Tuono stays too?

It might, sort of getting addicted to it, even though it is less practical. The Tuono is becoming my Track/Ferrati-type toy. I use luggage on my S3r, granted its not hard luggage which you CAN do...just dont want to ruin the look. Now the best Adventure-Tour I enjoy is the Multistrada. Did a 7k trip last summer on that beast.

I just always wanted a vintage bike (I had harleys but..) and this seems to fit that Thruxton/Sport Classic/V7 crowd...plus i havent owned a german bike yet .

I had a real tough time deciding between the BMW and Moto Guzzi air-cooled twins, so I decided... not to decide, till later. These bikes have a way of making you want to ride them at their pace. Kudos to The Bavarians for milking the camheads for all it's worth before the wholesale conversion to wetheads.

Yes this bike looks great and has more attitude than the R1200r. The bland r1200r pushed me to the guzzi but this bike would have changed that decision I think
