    R18 Transcontinental and SWAG box

    How many TC owners received the SWAG box? There are several on the R18 forum, but my dealer says it doesnt come with the TC.

    Welcome to the forum! This older thread suggests that it was with the "first edition" bikes:

    I haven't been following this. What does an R18 TC look like?

    Over in the R18 forums, they state the TC was grandfathered in along with the bagger since both models are new for 2022 and werent available when the bike first launched. Photo is from web, not my bike although I have bought from Bob's before and it looks exactly like mine. 20210902_122924_resized.jpeg

    Nice! Looks like that will eat up some miles in comfort!

    Welcome to the forum!
    The bike looks great. Is it possible that BMW made an “out of the box” comfortable seat?
    Good luck with the bike.

    Thanks! Wife took one look and fell in love with it, much more so than the Harleys we came off of. As for the seat, time will tell. Been fighting a case of COVID since taking delivery, so havent put any miles on it yet.

    Nope! Seat will have to go to Russell Daylong for rebuild.

    Just got back from short 50 mile ride. So far, I'm ok with stock seat, but time will tell on longer rides.

    I think if the seat works out, it would be great……..perhaps a first for BMW?

    I've had 400-500 miles days with the stock seat on my /7. But that might say something about my tolerance!!

    stock seat not so great

    I've got about 6k on mine and for anything more than an hour and my butt goes numb. I am looking for a way to increase the longer haul comfort.

    The Swag Box was unique to purchasers of the R18 First Edition Models. Contains a great BMW historical Hardcover coffee table book, a set of replacement roundels in antique bronze, a trucker cap and black leather belt with an R18 commemorative buckle.
