    Biker parasites!

    Of course, nobody here could be one of these, but I bet we all know of some! http://www.examiner.com/article/two-wheeled-parasites

    In a way it is unfortunate that there are not more BMW riders who fit the the author's description. Just look at the number of very low mileage, babied, late model Harleys for sale at a fraction of their original price and imagine if there were a similar circumstance with Beemers.

    As an ebay & CL "regular" (when I'm into looking), I can assure you there are many beemers out there that are garage queens. Often the case with MC's & boats,etc..

    No doubt, but the number pales in comparison to HD. The numbers probably reflect the respective new bike market share of the two brands: in 2010 HD was 65%, BMW was listed as part of "All other brands" and below Polaris at 1.1%.
