For the price - we could probably have 5 V's in the garage.

I don't think BMW has released an MSRP yet for the U.S.

I was reading some on the BMW forums and they were getting estimates from their BMW dealers of around or a little higher than $24K. Do not hold me to this figure, just passing along hear say...

Nice. I'd have to get rid of the Versys ... I have no extra room with the current three bikes. Maybe I should just go ahead and expand the garage and then I could buy all the bikes I wanted. Not to mention the car lift for changing to track wheels on the the Porsche.

Its funny how Jay is not impressed with this guy and his fancy accent and all the while the guy is talking, Jay is fidgeting with the bike and looking around. In his mind I'm sure Jay is thinking..."okay, I can buy this bike and the bald guy with the funny accent with only the money I have in my pocket, then I can make him my garage bitch and have him clean all my cars"

Seriously, It is a nice looking motorcycle. I like the headlight idea but how long will it be before the gyroscope malfunctions and your headlight is shining off into space somewhere.
If I wanted a Big cruiser, I think I would go with the GW. I love the BMW GSA but this is a little too much for me, I think.
