I'm the 75K guy.
And those of you who know me, know what's coming next.
Love the bike, love the power, handling, comfort, technology, etc. I can ride thousand-mile days in complete comfort, and still keep up with the "sport" bikes on the twisty bits. I've ridden from below 30 degrees to well over 100. Sunny days, rain, fog, sleet, interstates, twisty mountain roads, city commutes, and the bike just keeps on humming along.
As Grif said, no valve adjustments needed yet, and it is much easier to work on than an LT. Plus losing 200 lbs and gaining 50 HP is a good thing.
But over the last 20 months, my GT has had a broken center stand (25K), airbox, software upgrade, throttle cables, and clutch (36K), ignition coil, EWS antenna, cam chain tensioner, and another
center stand (53K), final drive (63K), tire sensors, another
clutch, and oil pump (65K), front wheel bearings, and another
final drive (73K). And that doesn't include normal maintenance, tires, brake pads, oil changes, and fuel. Granted much of that has been warranty repairs but still, it does seem a bit excessive.
When the bike is performing as it should, it's awesome. But I've been stuck on the side of the road waiting on a tow truck so many times that I actually carry soft ties and ratchet straps on the bike at all times. So much for BMW's legendary reliability.
I realize that I'm an extreme case, both in terms of miles ridden, and problems encountered. But the bottom line is that I just don't trust the bike anymore. And for someone who doesn't own a car, that's very bad.
