May buy Moto Guzzi instead. That was the subject line of my email to the three addresses. The text of the emails is:
My plans are to buy a new bike this year. I'm really drawn to the F800GT. I'd just about decided to finalize my decision when I read in the MOA forum about an ongoing issue on a 2005 R1200GS with an ongoing problem with seal failures. The bike has had numerous ongoing failures of the exact same nature. The owner has been told the only solution is to replace the engine or replace the bike. The amount offered in compensation is far far below the value of the bike and frankly insulting. My resolve to buy my new BMW has significantly weakened out of concern over the support I can expect to receive or perhaps more accurately not receive should I have a problem. The Moto Guzzi on my suspect list has strengthened it's position. I hope to soon hear of a positive resolution in this case so that I and all other potential buyers can feel secure in our choices.
Hope that helps some. Good luck.
