The 2-fiddy back tire... Hmmm, na. But I recon I've got some extra photos at home that Will identify it.. I'll have a look if I ever get back there..

XR, no didn't go back for a pic of my detour..recon I can thank the new front fork internals for keeping it upright thru all those ditches and over the mounds etc..

Sorry about the photos disappearing.. they'll be back, not sure when, but within a month..

Spot is still off because I haven't moved

How's this for wonderful customer service :

Bike is under warranty,

Dealer can't generate an error on the motherships computer so,

BMW head office won't send them a replacement under warranty,

Got a call yesterday from roadside assist saying that the dealer has been unable to generate a fault on the computer and so bike Will be returned to me..

Absolute farce...

Stay tuned.....

So called BMW customer service to see how outraged they were at my predicament and what they suggest I should do..

Your case has been elevated sir, so if you just sit tight and be patient, we'll get back to you... Sometime next week........

My goodness.. so now I've had another call from roadside assist say a hirecar is teddy, go get your bike...

They couldn't offer any suggestions as to what I should do with it..

So roadside assist called and said they booked a hire car for 10:30 this morn for me to go get bike..

Picked it up.. first splutter came at 41kms..

I turned around, heading back to dealer so they see it, plug in computer while it happens

Now unrideable, stopped on side of rd about 15km from dealer to let her cool down a little...
