We also have a 310GS ordered but didn't know when it would come.

    I have seen several pictures of the GS.
    One with cast wheels and one with wire wheels.
    The first GS in person was the 1st with wire wheels

    With what I see is a bmw Ag failure to show the GS in a proper form, I have decided to keep my F650 GS and ride it until it fails.

    Reportedly, there will be one of the 310 series at a local dealer today. Seems like the demo truck is in town?
    Kinda figures........ I receive lots of advertising spam (from BMW and BMW-MOA) I don't want.......something I'm interested in- nope.

    Showing a photo of a bike in standard trim with cast wheels, and also a photo of a bike in optional trim with spoked wheels hardly seems like a big deal to me.

    I have seen 2 310Rs neither had a key. That bike is being sold in Canada if the postings are correct. The rumored 310GS had been shown in several magazines being ridden in serious dirt and sporting wire wheels. The base 310 GS is shown in cast wheels.
    I have decided to pass on this bike until BMW decided how it will be sold to the US public.

    Ahem.......Here is the report-
    The 310 for some reason are not ready for sale or test rides in the US . They had one but the computer was taken out.

    I visited Max BMW in N. Hampton NH. No demo, no story and as always it will be here but don't know when.

    Bought a 310R from Max in NH yesterday; has to be brought in from another store. It's ostensibly my son's first bike, but dad will need to thoroughly test ride it first! Bike to arrive NH next week, my son & wife will finalize the paperwork as I'll be out of town for work. Should be in the garage when I get home next weekend. There's only one (white) 310R in the showroom & it's sold...didn't ask about the GS, though.

    Cool
    It will be interesting to hear your thoughts on the bike.

    Thanks Voni - will check the build date on mine; seems the Euro recall is for bikes built in a certain timeframe, I'll want to make sure mine isn't among them!

    I'm happy that a few 310's showed up. It seems to me the worst plan for this motorcycle.
    I don't recall any other BMW's having a screwed up launch.
