Byron's sure to be hunched over a laptop after the checkers are flown, caught in his own little version of heaven. Whether on dirt, street or a combination of both, MotoUSA's newest addition knows the only thing better than actually riding is telling the story of how things went down.

2012 BMW F 650 GS
BMW continued to hit big sales numbers in September 2012 with the F800GS coming in as a top seller in the US.

BMW Motorrad continued to post big retail sales numbers through the month of September, improving on the already best-ever sales records set in August. For September, BMW reports that it provided 9,215 units to dealers, which is a 1,815 unit bump from the numbers posted in August and a 603 unit improvement on the previous year’s figures.
BMW subsidiary, Husqvarna Motorcycles, also had a big month, supplying 1,255 units. That’s 883 more than it distributed in August, though it does fall short of the 1,351 units delivered in Setember 2011, marking a 7.1% decline.

BMW Motorrad is slightly down in terms of year-to-date sales and it’s currently hovering at a 1.1% deficit compared to the January through September figures in 2011. Husqvarna, on the other hand, continues to enjoy somewhat substantial growth, up 21% in the YTD numbers as compared to last year.
