Like the cat licking its own bottom says,  it's all a matter of taste. Seriously,  if you like it,  why care what anyone else thinks.

Health to enjoy it.
vary true.

32 litres a side, and I have a 57 litre top box, it gives more than enough space for myself and the wife for 2 weeks away, including her taking hair straighteners and many other items that never get used but are there just in case. In the tradition of some 30 years touring the continent and beyond I get one pannier, the wife gets the rest with the exception of our waterproofs are in the top box. :smiley:
Good to know that may be useful info.

But no panniers on it when I rode it. Also recently rode BMW 1250gs and RS!

Panniers look rather small.

Good fortune has allowed me to own quite a few older/classic bikes over the past few years until health issues intervened  :cry: 

The need for another bike in my Rev Shed has never really left me.

So, recently I bought something to add to the superb 2019 Versys 1000 SE GT that I have in the shed


   



And this has now arrived  :wink: 


   
looks good to me.

If the bike is just for yourself, I'd suggest looking at the Versys 650 or Suzuki SV650, both very capable touring bikes and have toured in our group on many occasions, Ron is 83 years young and chucks the SV around like a GP rider when he wants too, not the fastest o-100 but certainly capable of riding comfortably in a group.
both excellent bikes.

Yeah but you haven't had a BMW for a while have you so you're out of touch with things.
look at the forum plenty of reports about poor BMW experiences in recent times. As I recall several in the thread you removed due to intimidation fears!

Pete, BMW service costs are very comparable with the GTR if not even cheaper as I found out to my surprise with the K1600.
not my experience I'm afraid and quality poor for the price.

Be wary though of poor BMW quality control and expensive servicing. Also prices are from so to get to a reasonable level costs a lot.
