Current rallye owners

Question to current rallye owners. I am about to buy new rallye which is essentially the 2017 model cause 2018 haven’t arrived yet. Are you guys happy with your rallye any reasons not to buy this model. This will be my first bmw.

I've had mine for a year now and realy realy enjoy it. I may be a bit biased though. I've done 20k on mine and no problems at all. I've got a set of std GS seats as the Rallye seat is to short for pillion riding. Get it and never look back.

I have the Rallye with the sport (taller) suspension. Awesome bike. Perhaps the best adv bike I’ve owned (I’ve only had it for a year, so it is too soon to realistically make such a claim). The suspension makes a BIG difference when compared to a standard GS.

Three weeks ago I finally bought a rallye. My first bmw and loving this bike. Thanks to all the wild dogs for response I got with my concerns about right side heat issue and some other questions I had.
