    Yeah, I think you demonstrated you really wanted that particular model of bike. My experience with this Dealer (I have purchased four bikes from them in the last eight years) is requiring a minimum of $1000 deposit. I don't want to strand that cash till Fall should they deliver even later and I have no real riding opportunity this year. Not their problem, just mine. As I have seen you write - you pays your money and takes your chances.

    Ken, I have two in line as #1 and #2 they have from BMW Mororrad USA. One must be RED. Zero down. That is what several new and several used bikes since 1984 will get you. I have bought 1.9 million miles worth of parts in the past 33 years from them. Dealership loyalty does mean something. When I tell them I want two 310s they simply believe me. YMMV. And they will deliver when they can. Engle Motors. Kansas City. My dealer, even if I do live 1100 miles away in Texas.

    High Tariff Proposed

    If you live in the US and are into small imported bikes from the EU you may wish to weigh into this.

    "The Office of United States Trade Representative requested comments on Dec. 28 regarding its proposal to include tariffs on motorcycles imported from the European Union with an engine size between 51cc and 500cc in the E.U. U.S. beef hormone trade dispute. The deadline to submit comments is Jan. 30.

    The American Motorcyclist Association opposes the proposed tariff, because trade disputes residing within the boundaries of the agricultural industry should not be solved with trade sanctions levied against non-agricultural products.

    Specifically, a 100 percent, or higher, tariff on these motorcycles is proposed. This will cause serious and potentially irreversible harm to American small- and medium-sized business owners selling the vehicles. Additionally, consumers will be denied access to certain models of competition and recreational motorcycles that contribute to the lifestyle and wellbeing of millions of American families.

    Manufacturers that will be impacted: 1) Aprilla; 2) Beta; 3) BMW; 4) Ducati; 5) Fantic; 6) Gas Gas; 7) Husqvarna; 9) KTM; 10) Montesa; 11) Piaggio; 12) Scorpa; 13) Sherco; 14) TM; and 15) Vespa."

    I saw a post on the R1200RS forum where the press had a group of 310R and at least 1 310GS for a few days last week at the Rock Store.
    One of the guys was able to take a test ride on the 310GS.

    I wonder if this proposal really includes the G310 models, which I understand to be built in India. (and Brazil?)

    Well I am only ~1600 miles from that Dealer - just a pesky border to cross.

    In the Northeast area- From Max E-Mail...

    Looking forward to seeing the new G310R in person? MAX BMW will be displaying a G310R at each of our 4 locations over the next month! Come see it in the following stores:

    Brookfield, Connecticut - April 8th

    South Windsor, Connecticut - April 15th

    Troy, New York - April 22nd

    North Hampton, New Hampshire - April 29th

    The G310R is a new addition to the BMW Motorrad family. With a 2017 MSRP starting at $4,750 it is an affordable bike that has already attracted much interest. Whether you are an experienced rider or a beginner looking to get in to the BMW Motorrad family, the G310R is truly a bike built for riders of all ages and experience.

    The G310R will be available for purchase MAX BMW stores around June or July. We are currently taking deposits.

    Engle Motors had had a non running 310R at the open house a couple weeks ago. I was surprised it was not a bad fit for me.

    The last we heard from Engle Motors, our dealer, was not until October . . .

    After seeing at least 3 different posters from multiple states mention their dealer is Engle Motors, I am feeling very fortunate that I live 45 minutes away from them

    Haven't bought a bike from them (yet), but had my new to me K1200RS serviced there and they seem like good people.
