    First time I've purchased a new BMW since my old 1997 R1100RS!

    I am still waiting on my saddlebags. BMW is slow on releasing them.

    I picked it up at Cal Moto in Livermore, Ca this afternoon -- a very pleasant experience with a great group of folks!!! I'll take some pics and upload within the next couple days. One accessory I did purchase was the tail trunk and that should be here early next week. I'll probably order the saddlebags too, but not until spring. Interesting about the saddlebags, @Drill. The parts rep I talked with said he can have everything, including panniers, within a few days. Anyway, this bike is amazing.

    I've been waiting since my September 1 purchase and I just checked with my dealers parts manager. She said every week now for several in a row BMW keeps postponing their orders for another week. She also said she anticipates that the reflector for the paint matching panniers will be a stick on reflector. Hell, its winter and I'm not short touring until next spring anyway! Stick.

    Congrats! We both have the same outstanding taste in choosing a very nice motorcycle. Got the same one back in mid November and just got my panniers last week with the added reflector.

    I know it is a personal preference but dam it is a great colour combination. I don’t think it will look outdated years from now. Looks fully loaded with options too. Mine is other than the Ride Pro that gives you Dynamic ride mode. Apparently to upgrade in Canada it’s a $2000 job with parts and labour (yikes).

    Enjoy your new ride!

    I was surprised to read this post and see the reflectors are still not available. The first week of November when I was at the Kansas City shop they had reflectors for the GS and GSA. I took it for granted the RS reflectors would be available in another week or two.
    We we at the shop today and I asked about the RS reflectors and they still are not available.
    The GSA required a small bracket for the bag mount reflector and a stick on reflector for the bag.
    The RS and R only require a stick on reflector. Seems crazy it's taking so long to ship those out.
    I'm in no hurry but feel bad for those that can't purchase bags until the reflectors are available.

    BMW Motorrade NA USA said when I called first week of December that ALL dealers were sent instructions and reflectors, and if they needed more they were available from BMW for the asking.
    I too was losing patience since I purchased the panniers with the bike mid November and at that time being told by the dealer that BMW would have a fix by early December. The dealer held my panniers aside, and by happenstance (luck) when I called on a Monday to inquire on the status of the 'hold', the dealer said they just got the instructions / reflectors on that prior Saturday. I picked up my panniers only like a week and a half ago.
