BMW incentives

Question: With all the incentives, the classic and FE are just about $1k difference. With that said, is the FE worth it versus the classic? I assume the ride is the same.

Not to speak for Urgefree but my interpretation of what he might be looking for are front and rear peg-mount brackets for the R18 that will accept passenger and rider HD oem and HD compatible accessory/after-market footpegs.
Maybe looking into brands and accessories for brands which use metric rather than SAE fasteners would be a better bet? Triumph, Moto Guzzi, etc

Thank you for clarifying. Almost all the aftermarket foot pegs I find online have a common dimension at the connection. I will make sure to thoroughly structure my questions and add illustrations to avoid further saltiness.
 
I completely agree with you but tread lightly when criticizing the mother ship! There are some on here so loyal to BMW they will slap you around a bit for expressing such awful truths heheheheh!! They claim the problems lie everywhere but with BMW. I've been called an entitled American and heaven forbid, even a broken record LOL!!

Now on an even lighter note (and Black Dog, if you're reading this, you know I've nothing but respect for you and our freedom of speech and I admire your skills and support you 100% but...) I think it's funny how Corbin has stepped up to the R18 game. Like BMW, Corbin's products are great (and expensive) but in general their customer service can at times be quite taxing (See? That was nice! Was that European enough?) Still, I personally love Corbin products and have went to that "well" many many times and will go back again. BUT having Corbin as the leader in BMW's R18 accessory line is kind of like having Black Dog in charge of customer relations! Heaven help us all! Ha ha ha ha!
Calling it like it is. I have two BMW cars in the fleet now, and 16 that I purchased Open MSO’s. Entitled boomer. I’m optimistic BMW NA will get their act together with accessories. The Bike is Fantastic. I went in to demo an R1250R, and jumped on the R18 afterwards. R18 had me at Berlin Built.

I went with the Classic as I wanted the 16" front wheel and CC. The rest ... spotlights, shield, bags, cans, taller seat, etc. were all bonuses --though I do prefer the fishtails.

Can’t go wrong…I think the wheel size/tire aspect ratio is relative. I imagine there will be a growing number of exhaust options coming on line, and take off availability.
