Alpine White 2017 R1200RT

Anybody in the Northern Va. Area bought one who may be on here ? My local dealer was supposed to call me and let me know when they uncrated it and put it on the floor. Turns out they sold, and never bothered to follow up w/ me.

Like to see one before I commit, appreciate the reply, thanks in advance !

Re: Alpine White 2017 R1200RT

I saw one at cross country BMW just a day or two ago. Cross Country is a solid 4+ hour drive from NVA so a bit far to drive just to look at a bike. I thought it looked good but not the color I would choose.

Thanks, agree, not driving 4 hours. Test rode a Platinum Bronze 2016, but really would like to see one in Alpine White. Perhaps another will surface in the months ahead...

Re: Alpine White 2017 R1200RT

Westbound, there is a significant difference between the 16 and 17 models, mainly the transmission/driveline. Makes shifting a new smooth experience by reports.
