    Come on BMW think outside the box (or pannier). If you are not convinced offer either or and let the customer choose.

    Yeah!

    Will be interesting what flexibility the dealers have with this.
    Back in December when I picked up my TB the £800 accessories offer was surposed to be for non factory fitted accessories or cloathing. Persuaded my dealer to just knock it off the price of the bike instead

    Paul you and I bought the bike at the right time good promotions to shift units before they put the water cooled out, enjoy our bikes a couple of years let the new model settle down then get a decent deal on the new model happy days!

    This is my plan having picked up a Rallye in March. The last of a model run always seem to be the best so 12-24 months into water cooling we should have a decent heads up of how they are.

    That would have got my dosh, was considering a new Twin Cam up until very recently and waiting to see what offers came up, but ongoing niggles with my low mileage bike and regular FPC / Fuel Gauge / Final Drive Issues still being reported evn on 2010 / 2011 models pushed me back to the Japs.

    Although for anyone wanting a new GS that looks like a pretty decent deal to me

    Not so good for anyone who recently paid full whack for a new bike, not only due to the extra money they spent, but these deals will knock residuals - what would a 12 month old GS with panniers be worth now, I reckon about £700 less than it was a week ago.

    I'm not worried, as I got nearly 20% discount on my TB.
