Not a popular bike, and way underpowered. Definitely NOT a typical BMW. My 2004 K1200GT will smoke a stock Rocket.

I know what you mean. I was Jonesing for a white one for a few years too. Test rode several and did some research. Sadly it is a bad design even though it is a beauty. Many BMW mechanics refuse to work on it. It is poorly designed and underbilt. Low power poor reliability. Bad frames. Great museum piece.

Exactly!
Accurate report on that ol' James Bond Beemer, Bill.
Twas 93 in Leaky yesterday.
Power out, wind, rain and 45 today. :(
