    Bmw scooter

    Now that BMW is coming out with a couple of super scooters are they going to be added as a sub-group. My bride refuses a motorcycle preferring scooters, these have her interest up as you can comfortably due some touring, 60 horsepower 110 mph no slouch. Plus add heated grips,seat electric adjustable windscreen not your old cushman scooter by a long shot

    I am all over that GT model

    Hope our local dealer gets one in so I can try it out. Too much money to not test ride it first.

    You can pre-order from Bob's BMW...

    The words ; PRE ORDER just give me the willy's.

    I believe David Brown the author( former husband of Helen Gurley Brown) said it best;
    After the age of 65 , never own anything that moves or requires paint.

    I believe that includes Pre -ordering anything.

    I kind of doubt he rode bikes? Sounds like a couch potato/intellectual...

    and who would pre-order anything that moves that they haven't ridden?

    I doubt he rode motorcycles either.
    As a committed New York city dweller, he probably did not even have a driving license.

    I threw out the "pre-order" comment as a way of determining what the retail price might be...

    A call just now to BMW Motorcycles of Ventura revealed nothing about when these machines will be available (other than some time in the spring), nor any clue as to what the MSRP might be.

    I bet those scooters in photos meet with disfavor of many women as they don't look skirt-friendly. Given that, might as well be a normal motorcycle.

    I agree about the skirt friendly thought.

    A big factor for me if i decide to get a "Maxi Step Through" type, is the
    "Step Through" part.
    If i still have to climb over the seat to get on I might as well stay with a motorcycle style.

    I have been experiencing a bunch of discomfort doing that maneuver lately. I believe it is due to a mesh failure from an operation I had two years ago.

    Proberly should start a sub-group. I start off the names with
    Scoot Group... Scooter-Pie...
    The thing about traveling is, you never want it to end and you can't wait to get home.
    I answer to Roy, Chief, or Sarg.
