26 year old Aspencade -v- 12 year old BMW LT

Postby ripsaw » Mon Aug 13, 2012 10:57 am



These are the 2 bikes I have. I know they are in contention with each other. My 86 1200 needs a bit of tidying up and looks old fashioned compared with the BMW which needs nothing at the moment doing to it. The BMW has a load of extras which the 1200 Asp doesn't have, but the 1200 Asp is overall a better ride and always turns heads whereas the BMW is almost invisible because of it's bland design and colour. I think I will sell the BMW and get another Goldwing. Sorted.

Being the owner of a 1986 GL1200, it made me feel good to hear you chose your 1200 over the BMW.
