Interesting Write-Up/Kudo's to you
Eventually, should you hang around these Internet sites long enough you will run into a number of issues, whether perceived, real, or pertinent to but a specific minority. These ni ggling items will fall into the jittery throttle at low-speeds, transmission, clunk, ECU/Computer Software upgrades, etc.
Your post tended to put these minor (IMO) issues in perspective and some of us owners (I included) periodically forget what a magnificent bike this really is (and I include all of the K/S/R/GT models). Great appearance, handles like a dream (makes me a better rider than I ever thought I was), and knockout looks.
And while "feel good" threads don't seem to gather as much momentum as griping threads, you once again have at least reminded me that this is one helluva bike. And how happy I am to own one.
With regards to some of the grumbles, and at my age cynicism typically is the prevailing attitude, I don't think I am being polyanna-ish in believing that these minor issues will either be corrected by BMW, for those that are experiencing them, or we will put them in perspective relative to the bike's attributes.
