    those overpriced touratech or whatever the brand kits are so overpriced. the oryx kit for the F650 costs more than a KTM.

    #2 sucks. like the Ohlins front end though. I've always tried to argue if the telelever is so good why didn't BMW use it on the Dakar bikes. But around here all these posers just don't get it.

    Brakes weren't the problem. It was my first exposure to deep, soft gravel and I hadn't yet learned the MORE POWAH!!! lesson. Look behind the bike and you can see the path of our tankslapper.

    It was a soft landing, and Pam was laughing, so no biggie.

    And, Steve, yes, my GS sucks. No word yet. I'm going to call today.

    I am going to get mine and do the freaking cable myself...too many excuses from BMW and Morton's. Man was I a dumbass for taking it there.

    So it is BMW's position that a frayed and sticking throttle cable is normal and should be expected on a $15k motorcycle with 11,000 miles?

    Have not even got to that part, it sits waiting for someone to even look at it because they are too busy.

    Cable = $32.00

    Rather do it myself. I'll know for the next time it happens at 22,000 miles cause I sure can't afford to sell it.
