I need to mention, the BMW financing gave much better rates, I believe the BMW rate is 6%. Not so bad. Even, the insurance rate was better.

Right now, I'll be heading back to the BMW shop. ...

Ok.

Yes, it may not be such a great deal, for the S10. The interest rate is way high, (18% or 13%) and that's with great credit.

Now, I'm also looking into a KTM, but, around here in Charleston,...

No, I don't. Though I really want to own, a 1200gs, the cost of ownership is a different matter.

My dealer has a 1200GS with low miles, 3200 miles. This bike belonged to a Doctor. He just never used the bike, he didn't have the time.

The 1200GS is sitting at the dealer here at Charleston....

Not at all, my enthusiasm still remains. The dealer wants to roll some options, I'm good with that. It may not add to much to my cost. I just want to know what I'm getting for the money.

Those are low miles, they should offer you something. But, make sure all the service bulletins are complied with. You really lucked out getting such a low mileage F800gs.

Ktm 990

You might want to give the KTM 990 a try. It's one heck of a bike. And well suited for those off road travels perhaps more than say the Super Tenure.
