I heard a rumor the other day

Has anyone ever heard of the BMW warehouse located in NYC that brings in the bikes from Germany? I heard they have unsold vehicles which never where shipped to dealers for sale but did not ship them back (i.e. 2004 R1200CLs).

Cool Re: I heard a rumor the other day

just be aware that with the 04 CLC's some had an issue with the side stand mount. it was soft and would increase the lean angle, and break the side stand. No center stand on bike

Were it not for that little issue I would probably would still be on My 04 CLC.

Re:2004 BMW R1200CLC Side Stand Issue

I have a 2004 BMW R1200CLC with the side stand issue, causing the bike to lean over completely on its side. Apparently this is a known issue on some of the CLC's ....the side stand mount to the frame bends over time.

Does anyone know of options to fix this issue other than replacing the subframe $$$.

Can dealers look up inventory in this warehouse? A new R1200CM would be nice.

Re: I heard a rumor the other day

I wouldn't be shocked since I know of a similar situation with one of the Japanese manufactures. Good luck ever getting your hands on one if it is true. The situation I am aware of is that the manufacturer can not / will not allow them to be sold (for different reasons). bet they will see a crusher before they ever get to an end user.
