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.
On vacation for a spell
