i was comparing the 2 x  options for my next steed
And was surprised to see, but can not believe that putting the Enfield 500 classic against the bmw r850r

The Enfield came out better in almost all areas inc performance of engine and touring.

Got to be wrong surely .

I  am not surprised. BMW's have been junk for some time now. These new BMW's are not your father's airhead. They are mostly built in China. In fact, the new Zongshen RX-3 Cyclone for $3500 is probably of superior quality than a new BMW. I do love the old toaster tank models with Bing carbs
