OJ I lived in CA when the CHP got their first BMW's like yours to replace the Kawasakis they rode for eternity. I remember the first time I saw one, I was oh man that guy has an awesome job. I commuted on my bike back then, before I lost my nuts. I don't remember the numbers but I remember the initial deal was sweet for the CHP. They got them cheap and BMW would buy them back after some amount of miles/time. Great field testing and advertising for BMW.
