I am totally agree with your thinking.
In fact this is a very important safety concern that need BMW to solve it.
I have been have my tire pressure from 36psi~42psi that was happen.
To free hand is no doubt can be consider as dangerous behavior but is necessary to know your bike is go on the straight that when need to handle it can be trust that her will go on the direction you want to go!
I been try to have hands smoothly touch on the bar and find it will start to wobble and may cause very serious situation make me can't control my bike.
I am doubt about BMW design have main defect on this that also can be said that they are may not capability to have safety design for this big bike for riding safety. (At least we should not have this concern for safety? Do we)
As I told to agent here that we buy this bike is for safety feature that BMW should equipment not to worry about this kind of concern bear in mind?
Otherwise why we are chosen it. We can buy other brand with half price even 1/3 only!
The safety feature and reliability are what I am paid for it.
As I mention that I been change my tire with BS and M it was no change to good.
I think BMW they are design their flagship as this and they should not take the weight excuse to run away from it.
Honda GL's weight I think is not less than LT and they can be treat and modify as tractor to handle the malfunction car on the highway at somewhere in the world (Discovery channel been introduce).
I am suppose BMW is a good company and should be proud about their product and should be take the responsibility to solve the safety concern of the owner.
Of course I can not expect it can be a tractor but at least it should show its performance as expect we have.
I have no try to riding the new LT at agency place and I am try to get my bike back at this Saturday that will better than let her stay over there wait for the answer from BMW at unknown date.
I am very appreciated all your input and sharing the experience you have.
I will try my bike when I get it and keep post on this issue for sharing and hope BMW can be have positive response to have solution for us.
The agency here is try hard to solve it but they are fail I think.
They take apart all front parts and change many parts which take away from new. That I am thank but no improve and I have my old parts back to her.
The agency told me that they follow every SOP offer by BMW and not work.
I am sure my tire is good and new that is reason I feel it and try to fix it this time because before they doubt tire is too old. So I change it and it still there.(Both tire is new)
As agency told me that my dealer was put wrong direction rote on my new tire and they fix it!(What a good luck I have meet
Hope BMW can see this message and put attention for this issue to have correct action for this help us get off this concern.
Thanks and appreciated all your input and experience sharing. Lets wait for BMW's positive response to solve it!
In fact I have many defect happen to me that if I have some time will be check the forums and post it as complain together and sharing to all of you.
