Can't read it, but the idea of comparing them is appropriate. I have the K1200S and will be getting the E60 M5 soon. They both are vehicles that are designed for real world, road performance. They both are very fast in a straight line and also do very well when the road gets twisty. They both focus on convenience and comfort. Other's may be best on the track, or perhaps have higher top speed, etc etc, but no other high performance bike or car offers the combination of outright speed, usable handling, & convenience/comfort/practicality than either of BMW's top offerings!
