I would buy the same bike at Max BMW if I were you. Can’t say more than that here Leslie
I hear you
Smart move 🙂
Smart move going from a F8 to 1200?
Very Smart. It’s an amazing bike. Go up to Brookfield CT they will let you ride whatever you want as much as you want. GS1200 is only about 25 lb heavier. You will only feel it when you have to pick it up. You will never need another bike after the GS1200. Good luck!!
Been to Brookfield Rob. 👍you probably know that it’s a great dealer
Yes. I worked with Dave. I live on LI and travel there for service too. Wish they would open up here
I’ll ride to LI just to ride the beach with you! 🙂
OH yea…..I’ll ride to LI just to ride the beach with you to break it in. 🙂
Come on down
Nothing to do with your current situation, but I would like to know how you cleaaned your riding suit. I have a grey/ vis yellow Klin outfit and after a trip to Alaska and back it’s pretty dirty. Any and all help appreciated.
Try soaking it in oxy clean then wash normally without armour. Will never be the same but may help. Is it gore tex?
Oh ok Klim. So after you soak it follow the cleaning directions on your suit
I wanna be in on the break-in ride also….Keep us posted. I’m riding up to Max this coming Sat morning to have my break in service done on my new RT. Hmmm what should I test ride this time 🙂
lol I know
So when do you pick up your new GS1200?
as soon as I get some protection on it…maybe Friday
Congrats on the new bike, looks great!
Is the F8 is now licensed in the U.S.? At least that’s what the picture suggests to me…
Yes and by doing that it gave me a great trade value plus BMW rebate on this bike $2080.
