dceggert I agree with you. I will not buy a 2013 bike though. I will never buy the first year production of anything if I can help it. I've been their and done that. Their is always some type of issue and get revised. Every new bmw car that is new in production has always had issues with it, some worse that others. My 2010 F800GS has been perfect. I know that statement is not always true but 80% of the time it is.
