$800 is a lot better than $1800. Still a lot of money, but you gotta pay to play. I can understand why that bike is worth it to so many.

Check with your closest BMW dealer how much the routine service costs. One of the guys in the local club told me he was quoted $1800 for the 24K service, including valves.

Funny, the RS doesn't do anything for me. I love that white R with the red frame, though. Except for the headlight. That will have to grow on me.

Just my opinion. $21K out the door for a used bike with a "tainted" title - not a good deal. It's not the bike - all they did was replace a rear shock - we just don't know at this point how much...
