called bmw NA and they told me the bike is within parameters and there's nothing wrong w/ the bike. they said the r1200 engine can't manage quick flicks of the throttle w/o load. not sure why this engine can't manage this sort of normal throttle movement. i asked if they'd buy the bike back in exchange for another bmw bike and they said no.
thanks for standing by me, bmw. as a 4x owner i really appreciate the customer support.

They have already taken courses on how to deny and distract you with smoke and mirrors if any of us bring the subject up again.
