    Hi all, I'm going to look at a 16 reg r, I've owned a s in the past which had the idle issue. Is this still a problem on the newer spec bikes and is there anything else I need to look for.
    Many thanks in advance Carl

    I don't have a problem with my 2014 GT, but that's not to say others don't. I'd just see what it does when you start it up.

    Good luck!

    I've done it, a week on Saturday I will be the proud owner of a 2016 800r. The only problem is I've got to travel 150 miles to pick it up, but it's a bmw dealer and is on there approved scheme, with a straight swap for my 2012 gs

    Tidy looking bike and you've got the luggage as well.

    Some nice roads around Suffolk near to Reiten BMW as well. Should give you a few options on your way home to avoid the road work infested A14.

    Hello Carl. Looks a beauty. I hope your enjoy it. And it has the sports panniers, something I am looking out for for my 2014 R. I'm in Rugby, so not very far away. Rob.
