BMW is killing me.

Wonder what the trade in value is for a '01 748?

$6-8K is my guess for MSRP. The F650 lists at about $8.5K right?

rumour is they're aiming to keep it under $6000 - that might be pretty tough.

no disagreement there at all, that's a sharp looking bike. It'll be twice the price though.
