"Hilfe meine BMW K1200LT brennt ab"

Sad to see the big girl go up in flames! It appears the German owner is more interested in filming it burn then trying to put the flames out! So sad!

Agreed, it's a shame to watch it burn. However, unless you happen to be carrying a fire extinguisher I'm not sure how anyone could attempt to put out that fire.

Been there! Had a fuel line blow on the '88 K100RT accelerating up the on ramp, felt fuel on my leg. Pulled over and as I put it on the side stand to get off, fuel hit the hot exhaust pipe and caught fire. Luckily, a passing auto had a fire extinguisher and he got it out pretty quickly, Melted the side panel and the wiring harness. I put it back together, sold it, and bought a '02 K1200LT.

2003 BMW K1200LTC Touring Motorcycle, went up in massive flames and a subsequent explosion, while parked and engine running / idling for approximately 3 minutes. Fire Dept. arrived 10 minutes later, and battelled the flamed for 7 more minutes to extinguish it. Luckily NO personal injury, but some property damage as a result. Initial White Smoke, and Flames observed at the Fuel-Rail above the Engine front, left hand side.
