Really nice analysis! Thorough without getting too far into the weeds, and the information was very helpful. I typically stay away from buying anything Gen 1 for this reason (cars, bikes, doesn't matter) but even with its out of the box performance issues, it is clear that the flash really makes a world of difference. I'm still undecided, but I like the new BMW more than I do anything else out there at this time.
Thanks for the post!
