And the nail in the coffin for the defenders...This was directed toward the infamous DR ABShttp://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=62933&page=49 Yet another reason to call Bullshit! Your report is crap and your eyes must be brown, as you too, are full of crap. How about some REAL evidence instead of this Sky is Falling Chicken Little Constipation for a change. And What about the Children, the children for Christ's sake. How did ya think to pull that one out of your ass? I for one like my servo equipped brakes. Went out on a Deathride yesterday on my R1200GS.... Going out today on my K1200RS. Russian Roulette it ain't. Jealousy, It may well be. To those that go out and buy a another bike, good riddance, uh, buh, bye, so , so, long... Lay it down and if ya can still walk, hobble down to your local BMW dealer for a SAFE motorcycle. Till then, PLEASE STFU and move on. Buy your self that Harley you've always wanted w/o ABS. You have to buy a police bike to get it. Reason? To many police getting killed on non-ABS equipped bikes. The old saying , carefull what you ask for comes to mind...The defender gets his Evidence http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1379701200GS ABS Failure Happened to Me. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- So there I am on this wonderfully twisty highway 120 on the way to Xilita, Mexico a week ago. I was riding fast and loving it. Passing the occasional slow moving truck or wayward head of livestock all the while grinding metal bits, streaking darkies out of the beautifully banked hairpins and smiling like a dog in heat and then it happened quite unexpectantly. I was coming around through a long fast curve and came up on a pair of trucks chugging uphill at what I'd figure was only about 20mph. I couldn't see around them safely enough too pass and since I was closing fast, I squeezed the brake. Nothing, nada, Oh SHIT! I thought. Grabbed it with all 4 and tugged as hard as I could and it started to slow...but it was too late. Faced with tailgate and the possibility of a chance encounter with Mexican healthcare, I decided...quickly... to take my chances with the other lane. I was lucky, the road was lightly traveled, and my pants remained dry. The road was clean, new pavement in fact. My battery was taking charge and it's terminal was tight. WTF, I even coaxed it to do it again twice that day, driving much more conservatively of course. Could it be that the 150 or so miles of hard riding and insane twistys (this road is absolutely incredible btw) took its toll on the servo brakes? The pause only lasted a couple seconds, then it kicks in. Weird and disconcerting, didn't like that at all. Hasn't done it since but I gotta say, how do I grow to love and trust these brakes as I did? Never an issue with my K1200RS or my R1150GSA ever, and I was sooooo pro servo brakes in the Dr.ABS threads. Thought the hype he was spreading was just that, a load of BS. This and the warranty issue I'm having with BMWNA over a clutch slave cylinder is starting to make me think. Love the 1200GS, tell everyone I know what a great bike it is. I know, in fact that I'm partly responsible for putting at least 5 others on the same bike. I dunno guys, maybe I'm feeling a bit guilty and falling out of love here. Any ideas out there of what could have caused the malfunction? Need to do a bit of self-education prior to taking it iinto the dealer Tuesday.
