I see them published in Magazines occasionally so they have to be out there.

I change your tires, you buy them on the web, I do the work $40, trying to keep riders on the road.

Yes Trevor , I recently read this list. I just can't remember where. I only took notice of my 1300 s HP. They sold 691 of them. I have number 446.

I thought those had a run of 750 my god they could not even pull off a marketing scam and sell em all?
No wonder they ended production of the 1300 it never sold very well it seems. If they are rare at all its not by design I doubt BMW likes a white elephant on their showroom floors.

Nothing a little advertising in this country could have cured. Their PR team in New Jersey sucks.

My K1300R sat on the dealer floor in Edmonton for 19 months before I got it. Best bike I have ever owned bar far!
I asked the GM why it sat so long...."All the oil guys wanna buy big expensive Harley's"..lol...when money and stupidity collide...

If i see an ad for Bmw bikes in Sweden, guess wich model?

Yepp, thats right, R1200GS.

Nothing else here in Sweden, been like this for ages. The only other model i have seen ads for in the last 2 years or so is the K1600.

Bmw marketing sucks on many levels.
