Can't Believe What I Am Reading
« on: March 27, 2018, 04:54:45 PM »
Just got my April issue of BMW ON. On page 8, they say they are discontinuing the S series bikes, including the R. RR and XR.

I was in shock to say the least.  :005:  Very convincing article. This can't be.

Apparently, as I kept reading, they got me.  April fools!

My issue arrived yesterday.  This morning, I poured a cup of coffee and sat down to read it.

Then, I crapped my pants reading the same article.

Half way through, I folded the front cover and saw “April 2018”.  I was on to the game before I even finished the article.

I realized halfway through the article, it was fake. Since it was March, I wasn't looking for an April Fool. Like you, I flipped the cover and looked and saw it was an April issue.  For a few moments, I was had. It wasn't pleasant.   :211:

the xr was the 10th best selling bike in 17 with the S1000RR around 12th I think.   The S and GS bikes are the only ones making money.  They ain't going anywhere.

My heart sank for a moment.  "How could a motorcycle this amazing be suddenly discontinued??" I wondered.  :005:

Um... no.  :155:

I prefer my coffee piping hot and find that the ambient room temperature surrounding the bowl tends to be lower than the rest of the house due to the heat absorbent nature of porcelain.  This overall induction greatly reduces the enjoyment of my hot joe. 

My old room mate used to eat Snickers bars on the toilet.  I never understood it.
