To try an be brief, we hired ten bikes from a BMW dealer in Durban South Africa and did two weeks mainly off-road through South Africa and Lesotho.
The terrain varied from dusty rocky tracks to muddy tracks, steep rocky climbs and descents…

My Fork Stanchions

I would like to call your attention to a problem I have had with both my BMW LC R1200 GS Adventures.

On my previous 2015 GSA LC the fork stanchion on the right hand side failed after hitting a pothole in the road, and oil leaked out from the fork making the bike unsafe to ride…

Upper Stanchion Crimping Failure

I was on a ride in SA in September with a group. Day 11 one of our guys went down. He is an extremely good rider. Travelling on a dead straight road, speed between 120 and 140KPH. He claims the front end just fell away and he went down. There was NOTHING to hit on the road and NO potholes…

Take Responsibility!

Please take responsibility. We in Israel already lost a friend because of this failure and another one was wounded. It must be repaired/recalled , the sooner is better.

Bujes Barras

After the second change of bars for warranty, which is already very worrisome, the state of the internal bushings is lousy. If I do not do a review and initial change on my account they will probably re-decompress the bars and what is worse is a possible accident and out of warranty.
