    OK, this is going to be fun :huh

    We have multiple threads for folks to comment on the show, or the bike or the personality etc.
    Take them there....

    The FM Mods are not going to babysit this ad for off topic remarks or other BS.
    Someone could actually be serious about buying the bike and we try and keep this place fair for other inmates with limiting the bumps.

    Not perfect but we try, so please play nice.

    Thanks!

    never seen the show, or have I any opinion on the personalities.
    But that bike is off the charts unique........Not how I would spend the money....but I would bet you would never see another one like it........

    Do you have any current condition pics of the GS, that you'll post here? It does seem to resemble the GSA with the crash bars on it, though.

    I'll check your website to see if there are current pictures there, too.

    If I am generous with the pricing for the listed ad-ons, I come up with a new price of about $35K...

    I sit here and wonder how $42,500 can be "priced below replacement cost"???

    I don't get it...

    Better sharpen your pencil.

    I didn't list everything, and I know you didn't figure in the price of paint & powdercoating.

    Given the attention to detail this bike no doubt received, I don't have a problem with the price at all. I was drooling at the bike when I saw the show.
    In fact, if I was able to, I'd buy it in a heartbeat. I think it's the most in your face Adventure on the planet, and someone will buy it. BMW should just to put in a museum somewhere, or maybe a dealer for their showroom.

    Outstanding bike, Jesse! I know you don't f**k around w/ two wheels.
    That price is bound to stir some folks up in ADV, tho.
    I'll sit back and enjoy the ride.
