Thank you all for commenting on this thread. There is some really good information, opinions, and experiences mentioned!
My original intent was never to exude this emotion: " It's a sad, pitiful person that feels the need to belittle others to make himself feel better ."
I don't hate any bikes. My attitude has always been as long as you are on 2 wheels, we are good.
My friend is going to buy this bike, and was showing it to me. He was proud that he made the decision, and I am happy for him. He will be riding again after a long hiatus and that makes me happy.
And my nature is to find humor, and snark wherever I can, not to be malicious, but to just have a little fun... And if one were to get to know me, and not judge me blindly, by a line on a computer screen, they might find my good nature to be true.
I just found it funny that the 2021 BMW is bragging about features, that the FJR has had for many years, and that Yamaha has executed effectively. My intention was to never belittle anyone. Again, if you knew me, you would know that.
If I have offended anyone, by this original posting, I am sorry. I do not ever want to rustle any feathers...
