Re: k1600gtl prices
Oh yeah im on board with the wife thing, slowly It took me some delicate ways to break her in to the idea and cost, first was the sticker shock, off course not the full retail, then there was the accessories, the GPS add, then the 3rd lite,two c3 helmets and comm all at a pretty penny , I did not dare bear that info to her till later in the game, first I had to get my old stuff SOLD quickly and the price was the difference as Judge Bill expressed, only $20,000. She said thats allot but maybe, then one of my favorite bikes sold a 2007 k1200r Sport and then it was only $11,000, she was still concerned and doesnt want a loan. Then my wrecked bikes insurance company paid me well $4,700 extra, oh the price jumped from base $24,000 to $28,000 I dont know i explained, but we got enough to cover it , we are good and still talking, I managed to sell all my BMW stuff and a old car $2200 extra, then purchased the gps at $749 my dealor cut me a break, and last the rear lite. Gave the rest off the money to my better half to go shopping for a bmw shirt and to buy a used C3 Helmet and BMW com system , boy was she happy.
