Just joining this forum, which already did loads of good work for me during my pre-buy research.

Just bought and taken delivery of white G310R and having ridden it for 50 miles now cannot begin to say what a delightful ride it is. Looking forward to completing the running in period and getting up a little more speed.

Couple of minor issues with delivery were that the headlight flash switch had been broken off and missed during PDI, and a chip to the paint by the right foot peg. The BMW dealer has promised to rectify both these during the first service and discount that, so really happy at the moment.

Loving the looks and now debating whether to spoil them by fitting the luggage rack and top-box light I managed to get hold of for £50. Grateful for thoughts as I am happy to wear a daypack for carrying minor items to and from work.

Thanks for allowing me to join and many, many thanks for the invaluable information provided on the forum.

Welcome from a little west of you in San Antonio, Texas. Sorry to hear about the minor issues but do hope your dealer will correct them at no cost to you.

I installed the BMW luggage rack to my 2018 G310R and feel it was worth every penny of the cost. I'm not a fan of top boxes but I did fit a soft tail pack and find it works very well for my needs. Enjoy your new baby BMW!
