I would have to call BS on your buddy's description of the BMW's poor u-turn abilities. He needs to learn to ride the thing. My co-worker and her husband have matching his and hers civilian models of the BMW. They both have no problem executing a u-turn inside 18 feet. The BMW might not have as generous a steering lock as the HD or Kawi, but a little counterbalancing goes a long way toward executing an easy u-turn that is just as tight or tighter. They also have much better ground clearance.

My gripe with the BMW is the clutch. Slipping frys it too easily. Considering the kind of riding actually involved on an everyday shift, BMW could have provided a useful, useable piece.
