Beastly! I didn't know the Swiss Army had heavy artillery.



I think I need one.

Or maybe this one, which I would expect to debut at an entirely different price point..

Maybe it's just me, but I prefer the FJ over the Beemer just because of it's simplicity. The BMW looks great and all, but with all of the nanny-ing electronic aids I can't help but feel like it detaches the rider from the whole riding experience.

Hey Ken: You've been ripped off (or else they're paying you a hefty design fee that you aren't talking about).

These are great bikes. They also got the Versys 1000. I think that FJ is 460 wet.
