It looks lovely. I'm sure you will be very happy together. What could possibly go wrong! BMW are renowned for their quality and customer service.  I feel really jealous!

It really must be a bundle of laughs in your house. 🙄
[/the shame of it they have some nice designs but often let down by poor quality control.

And the failing gearboxes and electrical melt downs.  Pretty good apart from all that. Then there are the dealers.....

I have never received any response from Williams following my complaint. However I did get a call from BMW GB customer services department asking if the dealer had successfully arranged a test ride and how did I like the 1200RS. I told her the whole story and guess what, BMW GB did not come back to me either. I guess they don't need new customers so can ignore any negative feedback.

standard BMW behaviour I'm afraid.

I too have looked at the GSA recently but am still undecided between that and another K16. Each have their own qualities.
Despite Petes continued tirade of comptliments I mean abuse about BMW, you do get looked after by them impeccably. Two years warranty on a used bike, who else does that?
I looked at a 2010 GSA very recently at a non BMW dealer which I was very interested in but it only came with a 30 day warranty.....30 days, that doesn't exactly fill you with confidence does it?


I hope you get the deal you seek, it's certainly a good time of the year to buy.
obviously I have to make a remark! Perhaps one needs a two year warranty on a second hand BMW
Despite that I do like the gs!

The same applies to the air in any tyres which BMW fit regardless of whether it is a car or bike tyre. They have to be inflated with air taken from the Himalayan Alps and only from an atmospheric value of between 20k to 30k feet otherwise they cannot guarantee that the tyres will stay inflated, if you mix the special BMW air with standard free air dispensed from a machine at your local garage often used by peasants and mere mortals in particular Morrisons it will invalidate immediately the entire warranty on the BMW bike/car not just anything to do with the wheels.


So be warned!  :whistling:
there is a horrible ring of truth in this!
