Question G310R spotting

I thought it might be fun to report when you see another 310R on the road. Perhaps it was another forum member?

I thought of it because a few days ago (yes I'm slow!) I spotted a blue/white 310R going down Wilshire Blvd, around the 12400 block, about noon time. First time in 3 months I've seen another 310 actually.

How often do you spot another 310R?

2018 G 310 R, 2016 C 650 Sport and 1976 (!) Yamaha XS650

I'm in central Maine for the summer and I suspect I could sit at the side of Route 6/15 until I leave in late October and not see another G310R or GS. My local BMW dealer is 170 miles south just outside of Portland, and to my knowledge it's the only dealer in Maine so the state isn't swamped with BMWs of any model.

Don't want to brag but it's truly a majestic place, no regrets living here.

I've got to ask though, with which cruise? I met some people on September-October'ish (can't remember) that came here on a cruise for the day. Queen Victorious I think was the name.

It was Royal Caribbean. They usually go to Ephesus but they changed it to Rhodes. We spent the day at Ronda Beach Bar and it was beautiful. We could see Turkey from there. Wish I had the guts to jump off that platform in the middle of the water.

Sounds like you've had a good time. The platform is a scary place at first but it grows on you, a few years back I 69-jumped with a friend, the experience alone was worth the red spots. Since their remodel, Ronda is more popular than ever; especially this year. It's a great place.

If you ever come by again, shoot me up and I'll take you to many places worth visiting!

I'm gathering you're a southern Mainer. I've no clear idea how far Max BMW is from Moosehead Lake without consulting my maps. A bit I figure.
