    Actually CR gearsets were available from BMW until not long ago. Maybe old stock, but Tom Cutter bought one (supposedly the last one) a few years ago.

    If I wanted a CR gearset now I'd just have one made.

    "Lastly: Over the next year or so, we're going to see a lot of guys selling bikes, cars, homes, and other valuables that they never intended to let go of and the sales will be driven by our failing economy. There are a lot of people out of work in America and there are more joining the ranks every day.

    Oh, and $9500 for that bike is just nuts!"

    I agree, we will see more and more people selling stuff off. It's going to get worse before it gets better. Sadly, for those who are hurting, there will be some real bargains. The $9500 price would indicate the seller is not hurting. Or, may be he is hurting and the price is an indication of his level of passion for this motorcycle. I love the 3/4 seat cowling and it DOES demand the original seat.

    With Triumph and Harley selling modern retro models, I wonder if this would work for BMW as a styling platform for a retro R1200R. Probably too small an audience.

    Interesting to see what it does seem to sell for.

    Is it possible to get a 2-1 (or even 2-2) supertrapp exhaust like that for a /6?
    If so, anyone have a location to purchase? I haven't been lucky in finding one yet.
