Actually the new BMW R12RT has caught my eye.
I have never been brand loyal to anything including motorcycles.
I started out on Yamahas back in the early 70's , and have owned a few of them over the years and they were all good reliable motorcycles, the FJR included.
I always said I would never own a Harley, well I bought one a few years ago and liked it, it too was a good reliable motorcycle.
I wanted to buy a BMW a couple of years ago but could not find one that suited me, the new RT does.

Am I ok ? I am alive and at home but have some injuries to recover from.
I was on my way home to Kentucky from Key West. In Chattanooga I was rearended on I-75. I had reduced speed due to an accident on the other side of the interstate, traffic ahead of me had slowed to about 45, I was hit from behind by a car that didnt slow down. I was ejected from the bike and nearly run over by other vehicles. My bike was pushed 120 ft from the point of impact. I was wearing good protective gear or so I thought. My Symax helmet was damaged and came off at some point causing some head injuries. It had been fully closed and buckled up , but the chin bar release broke and allowed the helmet to open. I have now found out that the HJC will not come off your head while closed but will easily roll forward and off your head with the chinbar open.
There were photographers on the scene of the previous accident and when they heard my accident occuring they turned to catch it on film and video, pretty amazing and scary shit. I'll be o.k. but its going to take a while. There is some photos here;

Wow Bob! That bike is a done deal. I'm glad you're doing fairly well after seeing that. Moron cagers.

I guess you can look on the bright side now. The insurance co. just put the deposit down on your new Beemer. :wink:
