    At dealers?

    There is a guy on another forum saying he has sat on a K1600GTL at a dealer. Are there really any at the dealers?

    He deleted the post, but I think he said Hanson's in OR was the dealer. Their website doesn't mention that they have any in stock.

    Deleting the post makes sense -- AFAIK, they haven't even hit the US ports of entry yet.

    Probably a display bike that BMW has.

    They're not available in Germany yet, either, according to a friend in der Vaterland, who is all hot for GT.

    Here's what I heard: According to our local dealer, there will be a total of 1,500 K1600's coming to the US this year and approx 1,200 are spoken for on the pre-order program. Not sure what the ratio of GTL verses GT, but it was mentioned that the GTL's seemed to be the bigger seller at first, but the GT's may be catching up based on recent orders.

    They claim these will be at the dealer in June. The remaining 300 bikes will be for dealers to have on their floor for regular business.

    I sat on both K1600s just last evening at my local dealer. But, they were BMW Canada display bikes, not dealer inventory. They were used for bike shows etc. and arrived in Canada in December I believe. They obviously are not series production bikes.

    Judging from the interest the bikes received at the bike show in Montreal they will do quite well in Canada. Have a feeling their will be lots of cross-overs.

    2011 will be a good year for BMW.

    Anyone built a sidecar or trike out of one, yet?

    That will be Sweet! Probably already in the works somewhere in Europe.
