I just left the BMW dealership where I put my deposit on the G310GS and was talking with the dealerships owner. He said the delay to the USA is partly due to our lighting differences, all lights, turn signal lenses, brake light and lens etc all have to be DOT approved which is NOT a requirement for the rest of the world. He also said the GS will most likely have slightly different gear ratios than the R at least here in the USA. I cant say if what I was told was true or not but I didn't figure that the owner of a dealership would lie to my face. He also said as he got new or better info he would keep me informed. He also believes that the GS will be a big success here in the USA but is not sure about the R. He now has 6 deposits on the R and 10 on the GS I am number 5 for the GS.
