Unhappy K1200LT Reverse Problem "Please Help"

I just purchased a used 2007 K1200LT and cant get the reverse switch to disengage. The reverse light goes out when the switch is moved to F but as I move forward with the engine on, I can hear the starter is turning. I also notice that in Neutral the bike does not freely move forward or back. The bike rode nice yesterday (date of purchase). It is Sunday, I wanted to ride and the BMW dealers are not open today.
Any suggestions

Not a lot of LT riders on this side of the servers, but you might try www.bmwlt.com and ask there.

As you might be waiting through Monday as well, since most dealers are closed on Mondays, too.

Ray,

Thank you for the reply. BMW sent me an email to update my ownership and to explain the warranty policy. I guess they are monitoring this website, now that beyond being proactive . I am having the bike towed to the shop on Tuesday; hopefully the bike will be ready for next weekend.

Best regards,
