Only reason I bought my 2010 8GS is because the BMW dealer were the only mc dealer that would take in a car in a bike trade.......... I have since fallen in love with the bike....even after all the stalling.....road side assistance....etc. Their marketing dept. are still idiots......imho... This would have been a perfect time to put the parts on the 8GS that it really needed to measure up.....specially with the competition heating up. Same battle has been/is going on in the long travel 29'er fork mountain bike world. If you don't spike your product and stay in the front..... many will go elsewhere, and you will loose market share..... I believe BMW will gain some in the 650gs.....ehhhhhhh ummmm....700.....but loose some lurkers in the 800gs to the competition. Go figure....maybe I'm the idiot, and missing the big picture.....
