Question where's the vin ??

I have to take my 08 gt for an inspection before I can license it. The vin # needs to be exposed..I know on most bikes it's on the fork tube..This being my first BMW can someone confirm the wear abouts of the vin on this beauty before I start un dressing her......

On my '06, you look at it underneath the handlebars, Might need a flashlight.

Check the lower frame rail, right side, down near the foot peg and rear brake lever. It's stamped into the edge of the frame, facing forward towards the clutch cover.

There should also be a sticker up under the front forks somewhere.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

I found it..you saved me from diving into the mountain of plastic...Incase anyone else needs to find it for import purposes , its behind the rear brake pedal on the frame kind of tucked in...
