Puke R1200GSA 2011 pinging, pre-ignition, detonation, misfire

A number of people have asked if this issue was ever resolved. My quick response is I no longer have this problem. In my longer response I am afraid they will ban me from this forum as I will have a lot to say about BMW Motorrad . I got rid of the 2011 ADV and bought a 2009 ADV. The 2009 is the last of the SOHC model. It runs sweet, same as my 2004 and 2007 did. Every single DOHC R1200GS (Standard and ADV) I rode experienced this same occasional erratic throttle response, misfire, pre-ignition and pinging
