Visian - lets hope Honda doesn't do what they did with the 700 Crosstour - a great GS bike that everyone else in the world can buy....except those of us in the states.

I guess I'm an exception. I've owned many BMW's since my first new one in 1972. I have never had a problem. No final drive or fuel strip failures, nothing. My current GS has 40,000 miles on it, I've gone through 3 headlight bulbs, tires and fuel that's all. All my BMW's have been R bikes. I've had excellent service from my Ducati's also. No FJR's for me. My next bike will be the S1000F, I'm 72 and I want to try something different.

Seems that there is an attitude here "if it didn't happen to me, it isn't true". That's very German.
That is nice. I pointed out to my service guy the leak, and he told me I must have run over some oil. The next time I was in they said my shock was blown, and not covered.
