Must be a sign of the economic times, manufacturers are trying every trick in the book to make sales. BMW France just announced that if you buy a brand new BMW motorcycle before the end of the year, you'll get up to a maximum of €2000 of BMW rider gear.
If you buy a F650GS, F800GS or a R1200R, you get €800 worth. If you buy a R1200RT, you get €1000, and if you buy a K1200GT, you hit the jackpot with €2000 of goodies.
You get to choose yourself from the 2008 Rider Gear catalog. Helmets, jackets, gloves, you name it, it's yours.
