I would believe the R111 would be a little slower on Dartmoor on the bends.The Thunderbird,however,does go around bends a lot better.Just down to tyre width and the newer bike having much better quality forks and rear suspension plus anti lock brakes.
I would think these 1200 BMWs are quite nippy and i am noticing there are a lot more twin cylinder bikes coming on the market now.
Rocket 111s have a 240 mile tank range with its 6 gallon capacity and 40 mpg.I tend to top up at around 160 miles of a journey.
Thank you for your support...
