I remember when you could do that with Brand H as well.

It's one of the big reason, even though I'm the first to gripe about the cost
That I still have airheads in my garage.

When I was rebuilding my GS I was shocked to find that I could get a new wiring harness.

I was even more shocked to find that it's was made the same year I bought it.

Meaning that not only was BMW willing to stock parts for 18 year bikes, but they were still making (Or having made) parts for 18 year old bikes.
