Smile NEW MOTOR is DONE

I pick up the bike on Wed next week. Brand new motor after 33000 miles along with new clutch and slave cyl. compliments of BMWNA... Nothin like a brand new 3 year old bike. Thanks BMW for doing the right thing.

Hypothetical question ...if BMWNA is monitoring.

Break in....Do I ride it like I stole it or do the BMW recommended method?

Out of curiousity, what packed in on your motor that prompted BMW to replace it? Ron

I went through yearly emissions today, and wondered how you made it through your state's inspection.

Wisconsin has no inspection for bikes. I just recently moved to NC. In fact the scoot is still in WI, going up to get her next week.
