    I checked the internet archives and somewhere between early 2017 and about the middle of 2017, the site went from seeming to be there and then to the response that "You don't have permission to access / on this server." Every sample since that time suggests the same thing. Something pretty tragic seemed to have happened.

    Park the domain?

    It would be nice if the domain name owner redirected the address to a parking page saying that i-bmw.com is temporarily down due to whatever reason that it's down, instead of just leaving it as server not found. This is the first time I've seen an outage last so long. It's the best site for K-bike owners, IMO.

    I like(ed) the I-BMW site. Lots of info and very knowledgeable people there. Shame if it's gone for good.

    The main owner of the site is still being quiet.
    I hope the owner does not just dump the site because there's a lot of good technical info there.
    I'm hoping Vic will turn over the site to the 3 admins.

    What happened to I-BMW??

    Anyone familiar with I-BMW and know where it went? As with this website, I gained a lot of valuable experience from the good folks over there and sure hope the members and knowledge base are not gone forever.

    Thanks all.

    Whoops. I got merged in here and did not know there was another thread running. I sure hope they get it back up. Best site for K-bike owners. I have run into numerous threads saving me time and money on just about everything so far on my K1300S.

    Who is the owner Lee? Can we write him?

    There used to be 3 owners but but due to some conflicts it's down to Vic Salemme.

    Earlier I misspoke when I said I talked to one of the owners, I should have said one of the admins.
