    How Many GS's?

    On page 90 of the November Owners' News, Guy Timmerman says "With over 170,000 GS bikes sold in 30 years..."

    This seems like a low-ball number ... Anybody know the actuals?

    Thanks,

    Paul

    5666 a year doesn't sound low ball.

    BMW are rare bikes.

    500,000 (half a million) produced as of May 2009.... It was a big news event at the time.

    YES! That's more like it! Thanks.
    Now that three years has passed since that event, how many more...?
