Ugly and Heavy. Adventure? I wouldn't take that thing off road...PITA to pick up, being so tall.

Almost looks like what Alice rides in Resident Evil Extinction. Before she murders it.

Damn straight. I would barrell off into the apocolypse on that jewel. Of course, it would have to be the end of the world before I could afford it!

Both the BMW R1200RT and R1200GS ADV are outstanding bikes. They routinely win magazine shootouts/comparisons for their classes.
