Exclamation New BMW's for half price!

Has anyone seen the website http://www.motosensation.com/motorcycles? I don't know if this is a scam or not, but you won't believe the prices. A new KS for $7775, GS for $7330, etc.. I'm not promoting this site. I'd just like to know if anyone has used motosensation, or heard of them. Sounds too good to be true.

Pete,
Investigate away!!!!! You might have to go to Germany!!!!
From their web page Terms:
Applicable Law and Jurisdiction
You agree that all matters relating to your access to or use of the Site, including all disputes, will be governed by the laws of Germany. You agree to the personal jurisdiction of the German courts in Munich, and waive any objection to such jurisdiction or venue.


You got to love the internet. Google this outfit. It is a scam and not a very good one, but all they need to do is scam one person (they will) and they turn a profit.

Aw shucks! You mean I got ripped off? I just bought a GS and a GT and paid by credit card. Gave them my SS# and bank account too just to be sure they got paid. They sure seem like a bunch of swell guys to me for selling me a couple of bikes so cheap.

It could be legit. The bikes could be a great deal, but the shipping could be a bear.

What was that middle thang?

Supposedly shipping is free. You think one of the members from Washington, DC could drive ober to McArthur and see if there really IS a company there? and further ask why a US company tries to use German law? I'm not sure a company in the US can do that.
