Should I jump onto this deal?
« on: August 29, 2018, 08:51:33 am »
Dealer offering a new R1200GSA, manufactured in 05/2017 as per VIN, at R232K. Should I take the deal or wait for a newer model and pay extra? I've read numerous reports about the heat issue on the 2017 models.
Some advice appreciated.
Some say I lack ambition,
I say I value my freedom.

Heat issue not such a big issue for me really.

But I would wait if I were you.  Unless you don't want to pay the extra cost

Freedom is when you get to a T-junction and think to yourself.

Maybe thats why the bike also keeps on pulling right. Because of the extra weight.
