    Saw this at the Dells Rally this weekend.
    Also the Nine T in café garb and
    the Bagger GTL
    Nine T and the Bagger were available for test rides

    The 310's are frozen, aren't they? Due to a recall on the front end?

    I sat on and ran it at Engle Motors in Kansas City today. Didn't actually ride it since we arrived by car absent any gear at all. Very nice bike. Now waiting for two G310GSs we have commited to buy ASAP.

    My grin was huge just sitting on the G310R. Can't imagine how great it will feel when my G310GS shows up!

    I was wondering what the "sticker" was on one of those.

    I have decided to update my 650GS as opposed to waiting for a 310GS

    I test rode the 310R today at BMW of Denver for about 20 minutes. What a delightful machine. I'm still grinning.

    I'm am definitely buying the GS when they are available.

    New 310GR

    I got my new G310R last Thursday and rode it the 130 miles home from the dealer. I traded a Honda CB300F in on it. The BMW has 4 more horsepower and does seem more powerful. The BMW shifts better and 1st gear isn't as low. The fit and finish of the BMW is much more impressive. I had a small windshield on the Honda so I had more wind with the BMW. The BMW came with rubber valve stems so we had them put metal ones on so we could use our tireguard sensors. We also installed Hepko Beker bags on it and had ordered the brackets from the U.K. and took the bags off the Honda. We also put the tutoro oiler on it as we had it on the Honda; it didn't mount as easily as it did on the Honda and hope it works o.k.
    Have only ridden another 30 miles since Thursday as had too much else to do. Hope to get a longer ride in today. I only had the Honda CB300F since April 20th and put a little over 10,000 miles on it. After being away from BMWs for 4 years we are happy to be back to BMWs. My wife has a 300GS coming. I had 3 Hondas and a Harley the last 4 years and 70,000 miles. My wife had a Harley and 2 Hondas, one being a 250 that she put 38,000 miles on. The Honda dealer had never seen a 250 with that many miles.
