I just bought mine about a month ago, and like it a lot. What I don't like, is the owners manual. It doesn't tell you squat about general maintenance, not even a schedule for, oil change, spark plugs, oil filter, valve adjustment, shaft gear oil, etc. When I bought the bike, and wanted to buy a shop manual, he said that I could buy it on a DVD only. Well, I tried buying one, with no luck, so I called another dealer, but he said they've had it on order for 6 months, and don't know when they'll get one. My dealer doesn't even have one for his service department! The crazy thing is that this bike has been made since 2009, and they don't have it available, even for a stinkin dealer! BMW customer service is very responsive, and explained that it is a problem with the company that makes the dvd's, but they should have been able to rectify this a long time ago!
I've always had Japanese bikes, and their owners manual has most info. on basic maintenance, AND a schedule, unlike BMW. What a let down.
