I'm already a member there and so far no real help (but they're nice!). The guy at Toff-Center Basel called BMW Schweiz for us and said that because BMW issues different VIN's for US bikes, those won't be allowed in Europe as they are. It is primarily due to keeping the "low cost" US bikes from being imported to Europe and low-balling the Euro dealers. He seemed very sure that our bikes would have no chance of being brought over.

But in the end, we're ok with selling our bikes and buying once we're settled in here. Maybe we can get some pre-spring specials
You don't know unless you ask. <--- Rides! Rides! Rides!!
