“When what you are deeply passionate about, what you can be best in the world at and what drives your economic engine come together, not only does your work move toward greatness, but so does your life. For, in the end, it is impossible to have a great life unless it is a meaningful life. And it is very difficult to have a meaningful life without meaningful work. Perhaps, then, you might gain that rare tranquility that comes from knowing that you’ve had a hand in creating something of intrinsic excellence that makes a contribution. Indeed, you might even gain that deepest of all satisfactions: knowing that your short time here on this earth has been well spent, and that it mattered.”

BMW reveals R nineT Scrambler

SO here's one model launch at the Milan show that will surprise only those under a very comfortable rock: BMW's R nineT Scrambler.
Like the concept that was revealed in June, it's based closely on the R nineT but has lower-spec suspension and brakes.
The R nineT's upside-down Öhlins forks have been swapped for right-way-up 43mm ones with gaiters and 125mm of travel. Four-piston calipers biting 320mm front brake discs replace the R nineT's radial-mounted monoblocs.
The R nineT's aluminium tank has gone in favour of a steel one.
The Scrambler has also been given a 19-inch front wheel, deep-tread tyres, a high-level exhaust and higher bars than the R nineT. The seat is more thinly padded and the pegs lower and more rearward.
Wire-spoked wheels, knobbly tyres, a single-seat sub-frame and an ally tank are among a range of options and accessories.
It's air-cooled 1170c boxer-twin engine makes a claimed 110hp at 7,750rpm and 85.5lbft at 6,000rpm. The bike's 'road-ready' weight is a claimed 220kg.
Price is to be confirmed. It's available in one colour, described as ' monolith metallic matt'. AKA brown.
