    $500 from BMW if you buy a new bike?

    Has anyone gotten any info on this? This was mentioned at the closing ceremony. I just bought a new bike yesterday and was wondering if a used one is included? It only had 5000 miles on it.

    The head of BMW NA was pretty clear on this -- $500 for purchase of a *new* BMW.

    Perhaps the $500 will cover the cost of extended drive train warranty.

    On another topic. Is your signature quote about riding in the rain yours, or--??
    I have heard it before and wondered who is the originator.
    Thanks, Jeff

    I am not the originator of that saying but I love it. I know a few male riders who will not ride in the rain but I will. During my MSF class, it was raining when I took my riding test.

    I used to say something quite similar when I lived in the Greyt Pacific Northwet: "If you don't ride in the rain, you don't ride much." That was more than 10 years ago.

    Yup got the notice a week after i bought the bike.

    For some unfathomable reason they did the promo mid-month

    Actually there are several of us in that boat and our sales agent is looking to see if anything can be done.......
