    So, do I understand correctly that even in the States BMW does not themselves offer an extended warranty? That it's always through third-parties?

    Extended Warranty

    Rusty and OfficerImpersonator, thank you both for explaining this to me. Now I think I understand.

    ASC: When to turn off?

    Since many (most?) bikes with ASC have a button to turn it off, I'd like to know under what conditions would you do so? And whether or not the answer varies by type of bike and not only road (or...

    BMW claims redesigned windshields for the F700 and F800GS so it's rather likely that windshields for earlier versions might not fit. Some other accessories are also rumored not to fit, like some...

    Thanks JimBob,

    Neither of those two option "packages" are available on a bike with factory lowered suspension.

    It's annoying that on various BMW sites they refer to options by number, without...

    Thanks Mike, for both those links. I've bookmarked CMG and will keep a close eye on it.

    I think the problem is that the bike is not yet released in Canada (even though my local dealer actually has one) so the specs and most importantly the options are a bit of guesswork. My dealer...

    As a matter of fact, I did. But more than the ESA, I missed the ASC. It makes a real big difference especially when starting in conditions of reduced traction.

    Fender or Fork mount?

    Hi Peter,

    I'm not sure if you had the option for your bike, but for the K1300GT there is a choice of mounts: fender or fork. But there are no photos! I will call them to discuss this, but do you...

    Thanks! I didn't see mention of lowering on the BMW Canada web site for the GSA. I'll check to see if they mention it for the GS and will talk to my dealer.
