BMW Moto ED?

Has anyone here picked up a BMW motorcycle in Germany and then sent it back to the US? I've looked all over the BMW Moto website and can't find any mention of such a program.

I've enjoyed riding a BMW RT all through Austria and Italy a few years ago, but it was a "loan" from one of the AG engineers I was working with at the time. We have 4-6 weeks in the Spring we could go - actually hoping to get as far South/East as Greece.

Any knowledge/experience here?

Dick

I have nothing to add, but I am interested if you find anything else about it.

The only thing I know is that if you do pick up your bike at the Welt you are required to test it out on the long staircases inside. Seems to happen everytime I've been there.
