wessie scribbled on the back of a napkin:
In general, BMW quality is not what it used to be. The materials used
are inferior and the assembly can be a bit hit & miss.
.... and the finish is friggin' awful in places. And the whole thing
isn't being helped by the BMW factory tolerances being a tad on the big
side which tends to lead to parts being fitted to bikes that would have
a Japanese engineer jump off the nearest tall building.
If you are
careful about which dealer you use then the warranty back-up is still
AOL. Trouble is finding them. I'm still looking for a *very* good one
although Cannon BMW (which is who I use) are pretty decent.
I really like my W reg R1150. However, if I was in the market for
another bike then I doubt I would be looking at a BMW. I'm very much
with Verdigris when he says that new BMW bikes do not represent very
good value for money. They don't give you enough to justify the price
I really rate my GSA too. Trouble is that I don't really rate the
1200GS so I'll probably keep this one a tad longer than I originally
planned (three years) as long as it proves to continue to be as
reliable as it is so far.
