My personal plea to this forum is to stop complaining here and start firing off letters to BMW with the same enthusiasm and passion, and as I said before, don't relent until you're satisfied that your bike is working as advertised.
No response necessary. I'll close the refrigerator door now.

John, I am not certain if you kwow exactly what you are saying here. Remember my friend, your the guy posting the forum with posts like:
- "I am signing off the forum" as I had a bad day at the office because a collegue of mine gave a bad, what seemed to be favoring the competition rather than yours, presentation. Big freakin wiff!
- Or, there are now GT"S in Hawaii only Harley's post,
- Or, no electricity in the hotel, again, in Hawaii post...(although, I am glad there were no injuries...
- Or, "I am freaking out" because I just saw ;ics of the preliminary detail work of your BMW seat at the Corbin factory. Another, Big freaking wiff...
I am seeing a pattern here John, , you don't like the post you read so you pick up toys and want to go home and play. What a freaking baby! Last I looked this is a FORUM with some who want and better yet, need to exchange information. CRITICAL INFORMATION about CRITICAL ISSUES...You are right, the post about the seat discomfort, auto turn signals timeout, windshield, are just as a previous poster said...Trival...yet, most of these characterisitics regading the new GT give it character or individuality....I agree...
You want a bad day John? Let's look at another completely different perspective. Try experiencing the following and then post:
- Seeing your new GT torn competely down and determining the dealer has no clue as to why it's stalling!!!
- Or, exiting the freeway at a high rate of speed and having your bike lose complete power and your control goes in the shitter while looking frantically in the mirrors and praying there's not a cage behind you making the same high speed exisit!!!
- or, while entering a high speed turn experiencing COMPLETE ENGINE FAILURE, going down and damaging your new bike. This was a post from "The Pirate: a few weeks back regarding a KS going down as a result of stalling on the i-bmnw site.
Or, just simply paying $22K for a bike you can not depend on for a mere 200 mile trip!!!
Or, having your $22K dream machine in and out of the dealer service more times IN than you can remember and the only answer is: "we can't replicate it!"...
Please spare me your bad day at the office regarding the knuckle head presenter rant and I don't like the post I am reading so I'm leaving rant, and your Ward Cleaver suggestions to the Beaver of: not here on the forum...complain to the BMM dealer, take the high road suggestion, stay calm, the Dealer will work it out they have to post...Oh, thanks, Dad, I feel much better now for the talk...
I think you have drastically underestimate your audience and demographics John.
Most of us are seasoned, experienced, intelligent individuals, who have been successful in business and other lofty careers/professions. We know how to take the high road and obtain a win /win solution.
Now here's "my personal plea" John, let those of us POSTING on the forum related to critical issues that may just some day be life threatning to the rider and/or our passenger continue to exchange our ideas and maybe just maybe some one will post a postitive post, such as, " My dealer fixed my issue that is exactly identical to your very critical issue. Here's the steps taken." After all, from my experience here, we have some very good, technically assute, perhaps previous even mechanics and engineers that I love to exchange my issues with. Most have been very helpful.
It's not about "signing off the forum and never posting again"...It IS HOWEVER ABOUT EXCHANGING IDEAS OF COMMON INTEREST.
And, I thought your were an Aviator? Not someone I would want to fly with when the shit hits the fan and action needs to be taken. Rather than finding a solution and correcting the problem. You'd just sign off and punch out only to return again with out your copilot...
Just my Opinion..."Wally? Yes, Beavee? I do feel better, thanks"...
