Consistent with the theory of concentric circles, and with valves at the correct settings, it was time to add some miles. A warm day and a roughly circular route took the /7 through some varied running. B roads were combined with some high speed deserted roads that allowed the bike to get up close to triple digits, and 6k rpms. The machine was flawless. Strong linear acceleration allowed for passing and bursts of speed when required. However, the biggest surprise was the handling. Something about the balance and the wheel size makes this bike phenomenally easy to turn in. It makes it one of the better cornering BMWs I have ever ridden! An enjoyable few hours..
