Leak stanchion

Here is my stanchion on the left side a year ago. My R1200GS LC is produced november 2012, which is not included in this new recall. (The recall includes only the bikes produced from november 2013). A year ago I discovered a leakage under the rubber cover. Because of the oil leak…

Something unbelievable!!!

I own a R1200 GS Adventure 2007. At first I was so happy to have this bike, but now I don’t know if I did the correct purchase. After all the posts, pictures and stories I feel like I’m totally by myself. Most of the partners here talk about the water cooled models, but there is also a problem in older models, mine is oil-cooled and has 61,000 kms. I never expected this from BMW, sadness is what I feel. Hope the dealer can find the best solution for me, even though my bike doesn’t fits the recalled models.

Broken pots on doet road Namibia

On February 5th 2016 we, me and my pillion, where riding on a dirt road in Namibia. We when over a bump and had a litre dent in the rim of our front wheel. We continued our journey and after a few miles the front suspension started to spray oil. Luckily we where able to stop safely as both suspension pots came of completely. The bike was repatriated to the BMW rental company in Cape Town and I had to pay over 2000€ for repair.

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…
