I've asked this on the R1200GS board but without a whole lot of results so I figured I'd bring it here for some more ideas and opinions. Thanks. Hello to all. I've been lurking for a while but I'm at a small crossroads that I need some input on as I've never owned a BMW bike before. I will be doing the paperwork on a 07 1200GS with 66K miles on it this weekend. I have the option of getting a two year warranty for $990.00. Under normal operations for two years would there be any well known malfunctions that would cost this much or more? I don't know the reliability of these BMW motorcycles and therefore need the help of the people who have been riding them. Basically is this a good idea or not? I realize that it is always a gamble but would hate to add nearly another 10% in cost to the bike for something that I may with a high probability not use. I'd appreciate some information. Thanks to all.
