  • Here we go again...

    The German Godzilla has struck again. Again I took a BMW motorcycle for a day's test ride, this time it was a BMW R1200GS bike.

    Did some cool off-road driving, managed to fall just one time (I thought I'd fall more than that). Then for some 300km road driving.

    Bike is awsome. It will probably be my next bike. Only issue is that it costs as much as $34,000, nearly twice as much as it costs in the USA and (probably) Europe. We have an enormous tax rate on cars and motorcycles...

          OMG that tax is insane! Do you have any recourse like... What would the tax be if you bought one in another country and had it shipped to IL?

            I checked and it doesn't make things better. You are allowed to only get a new bike or a one year old bike, or a vintage one (i.e. a collector's bike). When you bring it to the country you pay the same amount of taxes, and the calculate it based upon THEIR price tables, not the actual price you bought the bike with...

                        Yes, it might just work. Question is who will put it back together? If I do it it will look something like this:

                            The axle's connected to the shockie...the shockie's connected to the handlebars...the handlebars connected to a god like German. (Hum it using the appropriate tune)
