    Great Idea! That warranty is a MUST with a BMW Scooter. Oh, a couple of our best friends also live in Delray Beach! Small World...

    Update on the white 2016 650 GT ....

    It's now someone else's white 650 GT.

    I sold it 16 days after I bought it for 3 reasons:

    1. I found a better buy on craigslist.

    2. It was a bit rough around the edges with scratches and scrapes from the previous owner, a West Virginian mountain woman.

    3. The "CHECK OIL" warning and scary looking yellow pyramid light kept coming on. This drove me crazy. I checked the oil 100 times on the bike and it was always fine, right in the middle of MIN and MAX. So I knew the bike was fine mechanically. Apparently, my 2016 model is not the first to experience random CHECK OIL warnings.

    So, I found a 2017 650 GT in Metallic Black Storm with 2,000 miles and over a year of warranty left. The owner said, "Not a hint of a scratch on it" and he was correct. I sold the '16 for $1500 more than I paid, kicked in $500 of mine, negotiated the price from $7400 to $7000 and bought it. I drove it home from the Gulf Coast of Florida to the Atlantic coast and the ride was perfection. I plan to keep it for a long time. This bike feels like it was designed around me. Love it!
