    I'm in the market for one and too many hours from a dealer to give much value to a warranty. Any owners ready for something else?

    Well considering that they've only just recently have showed up stateside in the show rooms (about 4 weeks now). Plus considering that BMW is only sending them over peacemeal to preselected dealerships in limited quantities, I think it would be safe to assume that you're going to have a wait awhile.

    I'm sure we can work something out. How much would you be willing to pay for a call option on my bike? The option will become exercisable at 300,000 miles or 10 years, whichever is sooner.

    Where in AR are you? If you're in northern AR, there's Springfield...

    We do have a few of them second hand ... in France !

    Sorry guys !

    More seriously, you can see them second hand at the original price of the naked bike (10000€) with a low mileage (1000-3000kms) but with the options for free...

    Is 10000 euro around $14300? I had the idea they were selling in the 12's here.

    Krikey, I didn't think they were that high. I may re-think my stratedgy. I'm seeing some loaded 1200GS's selling in that range. I'm giong to take a closer look at the things at the Potosi rally, maybe I'll put the 800 off a couple of years and try a big block.

    If anybody is looking to offload a boxer twin, I'm looking to ship one back to Europe as my vacation ride. I'd like a good used 800 as well but I don't expect to see them this side of Xmas.

    Saw one at the dealer a few days ago. It was sold, and they didn't know when they would get more. I was told the bike was in the 12k range.
    Looking over the bike, it looked very well built.
