It takes a case of rare necessity to get me inside a BMW dealership, but that's where I was this morning, and how I came to be examining a new R9T.

Two things in particular attracted me to it. One, it's diminutive size made the Asian built 300 standing next to it look like a huge juggernaut! That, and the fact that it has a real throttle operated by a real cable. Both big plusses IMO. Oh yeah, three things, no control panel just a single instrument. Magic! Could this be the future?

Almost tempted I was, but as I pointed out to the opportunistic sales person, while showing him the ignition lead that I'd just collected, "I've just spent a shit load more than I can afford already!"  :eek7:

Succumb not to the erosion of those born of unconsecrated union.

"Two Wheels, an engine and a place to sit." What more do you need?

2021 a milestone. 60 years a biker.

I was given a R9T Urban to ride for the weekend. Really really fun, with a serious quirky attitude.
Low enough for me to sit on with me feet on the ground, and I felt it brought out a unexplained confidence when riding.
Took my wife out as pillion, and although not comfortable for long distance it is OK-ish for a cup-of-coffe-run. I will have a low backrest sissy bar made up so I don't loose her on excited pull offs.....

Looking forward to ordering a Scrambler.......

Love the looks of this thing, but with the spoked wheels.

Around R165K-ish  I think, with the cross spoke wheels and heated grips - waiting for my quote...... :)

Would still like to see it. Nothing like a sidetrack hijack...just for perspective!

I am more and more intrigued by the R9T Scrambler and scheming all sorts of ideas how to afford it..... :patch: :biggrin: It's been a while since BMW brought out something that you can customise to anything you like, that is what I like  :drif:

I played very nicely with the R9T Urban demo model I had for the weekend,
sometimes just a change of colour makes a difference - the white and red seat is abit "loud" in the begining but it does get easier......., except when my goose asked if this was a cop bike !!
