2003 BMW R 1200 CL from United Kingdom
Poor man's Electraglide
Very nice underrated touring bus.
Low power does not detract from the experience provided you are not in a hurry.
Copes with the weight of luggage and pillion admirably.
Servo assisted brakes can be a bit grabby at low speed, especially when operated from the rear (linked brakes).
Handling raises a few eyebrows from riders on sportier bikes.
Panniers don't hold a lot, but more space can be liberated from the R/H box by taking out the CD player.
Looks polarize opinion.
Other motorcyclists think it's ugly, whereas non bikers think it's a thing of beauty.
I think from the front it looks like a Sentinel from the Matrix film.
Not the sort of bike I ever thought I would enjoy riding.
I bought it mainly so my Wife could have a bit of comfort, but I'm finding it hugely enjoyable.
Definitely can recommend.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Don't Know
