My local BMW dealer went out of business, and the closest one is now two hours away. I have to go to the dealer to finalize my entry. That sucks!

I took the registration to my closest dealer, Honda/BMW/Suzuki/Kawasaki/Sea-Doo of Hollywood, and the salesmen there had no idea that the contest even existed. How serious is that?

They forgot to mention the most important part of any BMW event.... septagenarian clog dancers.

I registered this last weekend, but have yet to go by my local dealer to validate it.



I really WANT to own a BMW - but I just don't have the cash for the models that attract me (seems to be that way with women, too).



But, I still keep up a good rapport with my local BMW dealer - easy to do when they're such a great bunch of moto-heads (like myself!).

Same here. No local St. Louis (pop. 2.8 million)dealer -- nearest one is 120 miles away in Cape Girardeau, (pop. 35k, home of Rush Limbaugh - ugh). Go figure.

"...three engine platforms...."



Well this kind of pisses me off. I guess the 800 parallel twins aren't coming after all.

If you convert the price in euros to dollar those 800s come to about $13K.



They can keep them over there.

I doubt they'll be 13K. Oddball price variance between us and the Euroweenies is normal. I read about every other issue of "Bike" and some of the prices our poor brethern pay - no wonder our standard of living is better. No extra supra national level of political thieves to support.



Betcha they come in at about $9K or so. Maybe 10K to position between the "still here for now" 650 and the new gen nekkid R12r.



Hey, BigJames - don't count on it jes yet. My entry will be finalized by Jon (Yon) D. later today! Since I've been handing him green paper rectangles since the old "Nuts and Bolts" days, I figger some good ole home cookin beats early entry any day.
