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

ah the toff centre - or the toss centre as i call it and the most un helpful dealer i have ever met, and im not the only one with the same feelings, the service dept also has no clue that they need to use moly grease on the 1200 shaft - they use normal grease !

if you want to keep your bikes do a bit more digging as i dont see any reason you can not bring your bikes over, people do it with cars all the time

also this might have explanation on your answer from bmw switzerland.
