Dark Graphite Metallic-Where are they

Daily, I am on this board and it seems that most people in the U.S. have been sold the blue or Crystal Gray Metallic.

My dealer offered me the crystal gray and i passed. I am first on the list for the dark graphite and have been told that i should get the bike in late June.

I was fortunate enough to see the bike in person and it is much prettier then the pictures. Anyway, I am counting the days and cannot wait. I love my k1200rs but this is the bike i have dreamed about.

I hope this time frame is correct.

Dark Gray

I bought the first bike delivered to Scottsdale BMW.
Dark Grey Metallic.
I feel like I should have a "Darth Vader" helmet to ride it.

Thanks this give me hope and the time period

My dealer told me i should see the bike in about 6 to 8 weeks. The Original purchaser took the first bike which was blue. This deposit was put down before the release of the bike. Does this time period seem correct

Picked up a dark graphite at Houston Motorsport today, a very elegant color.
It's worth the wait.

I picked up my graphite GT last Saturday. It was the first GT the dealer received and it was the only color I wanted. The dealer was expecting another bike (blue, I think) in the past few days.
Interestingly, he told me that BMW's policy is that the more quickly the dealers "roll" the bikes, i.e., either sell them or put them out as demos, the more quickly they will receive more. I guess that implies that BMW is somehow metering the availablitly of the GTs rather than just shipping them as equitably and as soon as possible.
