Yeah and my dealer looked me in the eye and told me that. I still bought the bike... So what, they have to make a living too. Oh I guess you live for free!

If you want the bike, you buy the bike. $250 in fees is a drop in the bucket when everything is done. Either you have the money or you don't. If you don't then you shouldn't be looking at an $11K motorcycle!

Hey Roonie, are you located in the Vancouver market area...if so that's probabaly why you got such a good price.

Not much wiggle room on the Prairie Market... our alternate choices are Toronto, Edmonton and Calgary. There is little supply and just enough demand here in Winnipeg. So far there are only 10 F800's alloted for this area and they are all spoken for.

So I am one of few who still believe in supporting the local economy. I have known the people at Wildwood Motor Sports for over 25 years and can always count on them for help when I need it.

Seattle..... the good price is because it is the cash price.

Just quoted: $1,000 off of list which includes: ABS, comfort package, centerstand, transportation.

I thought this was pretty good considering the F800GS is in such demand.

Good luck.......

Wow! for sure that sounds like a good deal. I'm jealous of the people that did not have to pay a sales tax considering I had to pay 8.10%..... I know you do the math

$250 for the 600M service?? Fuckme you guys get ripped off!!

$46, we get the first service "labour" free in Australia!!

Google the part number of the oil filter, it will be the same as some other model BMW and generic brands will be available. I never put a BMW oil filter on my Dakar, too bloody expensive!!

I'm not a big fan of buying OE oil filters at a bloated price.... but steer clear of Fram. I'd rather use a loofah sponge instead of a Fram. They consistantly get poor reviews. They use cardboard endcaps which can easily leak and cheap bypass valves which are known to stick open.
