Default BMW concept bagger

I like it.....the front needs a little more work, handlebars look out of place, and WTF with the wood! But all in all I dig it, especially that 6 cylinder engine which is supposed to be a gem!

2012 Hammer S
Freedom Performance pipes now wrapped, PCV, Loyds air filter, ATS, Loyds Cams and 1/4 Turn Throttle adj, Progressive rear shock
300mm rear and 23" front

Looks cool!!! Bags look a little small... Wind management may be an issue too. The wood can fuck off when it gets a chance.

Fugly!.......Designed with a ruler, wood grain almost made me puke, bags look small....Just what I would expect from BMW, but im sure the parking lots around Google, ECPI and any other IT based office will be full of them.

I have owned BMW's going back to the early 80's...still have two...gotta say, this thing is ugly to the max.......and the wood ? Reminds me of a 1979 Ford Country Squire station wagon.....and they were ugly then.

I do like the R/Sands R-nine-T Boxer though....but it is no bagger for sure.

BMW has changed it's direction lately, and some of that is what brought me to Vic....
