Maybe Here's A Chance To Influence BMW

I just participated in the survery. Perhaps you might want to as it covers lots of important material.

Sorry folks...I was told this link doesn't work. The techies could explain, but it's tied to my e-mail address ONLY. Big survey, lots of questions, but apparently you MUST get the survey.

Merry Christmas.

Get Real

C'mon you guys, you don't believe you've been surveyed do you? BMW has never even contacted, much less surveyed a single owner of one of their motorcycles... at least they haven't in the 12 years I've been riding the brand.

You've been phished for sure... you just better hope you didn't give them too much personal info!

You may be correct, but I doubt it. The questions were very, very detailed. No personal info passed other than e-mail address, which they had anyway.

I'm kind of 50/50 on this.
The main sight is Equation Research which about collecting data and making it easy to sift through. Might be a phony front, I suppose. I didn't dig too deep into their web site.
Here's the question in my mind, though. The Iron Butt Rally this year had four BMW's with rear drive failure. All of them new (like 2007 models). K1200LT's have had a history of rear drive failures. BMW won't admit to anything, but BMWNA did contact the IBR folks, and knowing the kind of folks they are, BMWNA probably got more than an earful One of the best advertising BMW got, and for free, was the number of BMW's that were normally entered into this rally.

K1200R-Sport isn't selling well at all. Kind of a bust.

NextGen GT's are having an armload of fueling issues that may just be getting resolved with the new airbox and software

Wouldn't surprise me if someone wanted some independant customer feedback.
