Arrow I'm due a G310R test ride

Hi folks. I'm brand new to this forum. My dealer (Vines) has invited me to a test ride on Tuesday 18 April (just after Easter) having put a deposit down for a G310R earlier in the year. Fingers crossed it will be there, as I've been hunting for an actual launch date in the UK for a while.

Welcome to the forum! I'm guessing the test G310R will be shipped to your dealer by Sunday if you can test ride it after the Eater holiday. Did Vines give you a delivery date for your bike?

No delivery date as yet. I'll ask for an update on the day of the test ride.

I put down a deposit for G310r last July 2016 and finally saw my bike at my dealer on Saturday 7th April also waiting to test ride on 18 April which is UK launch date. The dealer confirmed the bike will be ready and I can ride away on the day been a very long wait but after seeing it at the dealer in the white super sport colour well smitten with it!! Hopefully the bikes will be available outside Europe very soon because they look Brillant for the price!!

Big smile on face!
The test drive happened yesterday, on the official UK launch date. The bike is dwarfed when next to a 1200cc GS! It is a very agile and compact machine. All the controls are easy to operate and the engine is willing. It looks like everything is easy to get to in terms of maintenance. I'm taking delivery of my bike on Friday of this week. I've got to say that the 'Launch' was very understated! Pix will follow.

Nice! Looking forward to hearing a full report with pictures. I'm just going to contact my local dealers and see about a test ride on Saturday. Does it have the wonky indicators on each side of the bars like other BMWs?

Nice, were you able to get up to freeway speeds to feel what it was like? How was the vibrations? I have so many questions to plague you with haha
