Angry warranty costs Rant

just recieved my warranty cover renewal on my 2 year old k1200rs

£659...... is it me , or does this seem like a lot of money - more than 5% of the initial cost of the bike.....

are there that many claims to justify this amount , and i believe it gets more expensive as the bike gets older..

i have made a claim against my last k1200rs for a failed clutch slave cylinder seal which i was informed cost over a £1000 , mostly due to incompetent service staff. this should have cost a £100-300.

Looks like im going to be getting my hands dirty !, i will not be paying the "BBT" <bmw blackmail tax>, and of course if you don't pay - your engine self destructs while your in the alps !

we seem to be getting away from bikes and into how deep is my pocket :-<

Anyone want to buy a White/ Blue K1200rs 04, with luggage topbox 8000mls

that Rant aside - glad to see some good weather coming in, this has been a long miserable winter
