New guy here because, well I did it...

I went to Cal Moto and special ordered my 2007 BMW K1200GT. :yeah

Because I wanted so many options they have to build it for me.
I'm getting it fully loaded - xenon Light, ESA, ASC, TPM, everything. I also ordered it in the Dark Graphite Metallic, but with the Dark Slate Metallic Side Covers and the Black heated low seat, the only thing I'm not getting is the tall windscreen. It really is hard to wait for it but I did the same thing with my truck, ordered it built to my specs.

I will receive it mid June so for now I'll just show up at the dealership once in a while bugging them for a loaner

I was so excited; I just had to take this picture...

Excellent. Welcome to the club.

I also wanted all the acronyms, and was prepared to wait. But my sales guy found exactly the bike I wanted on its way to another dealer, so they made a swap and I got it in a couple of weeks. He earned his commission that day.

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...

Congrats,
I was thinking of the same color scheme. As black as you can get it. Would love to see pics of your bike when it comes in.
