BMW PRESS RELEASE.

The new K 1600 B: emotion and fascination with 6 cylinders in the exclusive Bagger style. The “Concept 101” concept study, released in spring 2015, was an impressive new chapter for BMW Motorrad in the history of BMW Motorrad Concept Bikes. This BMW Motorrad interpretation of motorcycling on endless highways, the dream of freedom and the embodiment of “Grand American Touring” now becomes reality in form of a series version of the new K 1600 B bagger ............

HELITE AIR VESTS AND JACKETS

Many of our members are now wearing these fantastic jackets. I personally know of four ex bikers that are paraplegic due to motorcycle crashes. The 19 year old son of one of my best freinds was killed after hitting a traffic sign and ruptured the Aorta Artery and my own Son spent 18 days in a coma in the critical care unit after his bike collided with a lamp post. What cost for saving your life or saving you from life changing injuries ?

BMW ISSUES RECALL ON R & K SERIES

BMW is recalling 367,000 motorcycles,because of a problem with their rear wheel carrier flanges.

The recall affects K and R models produced from November 2003 to April 2011.

According to BMW, the rear wheel brake disc bolts or wheel nuts may have received excessive torque during incorrectly-executed maintenance. Tightening the bolts too much could result in cracks to the wheel flange. BMW will replace the aluminum wheel flanges on affected motorcycles with a stronger steel component.

Affected owners should start recieving recall letters in the post shortly.

Immediate Recall of the 2014 BMW R1200RT !

Owners told not to ride bikes !

 

Taken from MCN.

BMW has issued an urgent instruction to all owners of 2014 BMW R1200RT owners fitted with the Dynamic ESA electronic suspension system to stop riding their motorcycles with immediate effect.

The problem concerns the rear suspension system and the potential failure of the plunger rod assembly inside. The instruction to stop riding motorcycles only relates to the 2014 model of the RT; the bike with the updated water-cooled boxer engine that was launched just a few months ago and only those models with the Dynamic ESA suspension option fitted.

A statement from BMW reads: "We regret to inform you that with immediate effect all 2014 R 1200 RT with Dynamic ESA must not be ridden. At this moment, we cannot guarantee that the plunger rod assembly for the rear suspension unit will not fail.
"Customers of affected machines will be contacted by their dealer immediately and asked not to ride their motorcycle. Whilst this is extremely disappointing for our customers their safety is BMW Motorrad's priority."

BMW dealers are currently contacting the 500-or so UK owners to explain the situation and work out how affected motorcycles will be fixed.

WORTH BEARING IN MIND ?? (Love 17 !!)

 

  1. I'd kill for a Nobel Peace Prize.
  2. Borrow money from pessimists -- they don't expect it back.
  3. Half the people you know are below average.
  4. The problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard.
  5. 99% of lawyers give the rest a bad name.
  6. 42.7% of all statistics are made up on the spot.
  7. A conscience is what hurts when all your other parts feels so good.
  8. A clear conscience is usually the sign of a bad memory.
  9. All those who believe in psycho-kinesis, raise my hand.
  10. OK, so what's the speed of dark?
  11. How do you tell when you're out of invisible ink?
  12. I almost had a psychic girlfriend but she left me before we met.
  13. Depression is merely anger without enthusiasm.
  14. When everything is coming your way, you're in the wrong lane.
  15. If Barbie is so popular, why do you have to buy her friends?
  16. What happens if you get scared half to death twice?
  17. My mechanic told me, "I couldn't repair your motorcycles brakes, so I made your horn louder."
  18. If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence that you tried.
  19. Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.
  20. To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism; to steal from many is research.
  21. The sooner you fall behind, the more time you'll have to catch up.
  22. Everyone has a photographic memory, some just don't have film
  23. A conclusion is the place where you got tired of thinking.
