BMW service personnel? If so they are impressively trained.

<!> is the General Fault Indicator.

The question is, what other lights are on?

Pacific NorthWet
'13 Dark Graphite Metallic K16GTLD, 24K miles and counting...
'09 Magnesium Beige Metallic K13GT, 60K miles miles and counting...
'02 Mauve Metallic K12LTC, 106K miles and sold
BMWLT#145, IBA# 366, MOA# 111996, SCMA# 24032

All lower 48 states plus Alaska on the K13GT in two weeks . . .

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

hang on, check your oil level, I get the <!> icon when my oil level is a bit down.

slightly low oil level. May need just a few oz or so.

It is not the headlight, it is saying that your oil level is too low.

I'd think twice about getting my bike serviced with people who don't know a low oil icon???

If it's not fun - your doing it wrong !!
