A week in Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg

I can't afford to take the time off to head out west with the 2-3 days there and back to get to the Black Hills or the mountains. I have been checking out my lodging options in the Smoky Mountains/...

Well the thread is about the WC R1200RT

I don't see anything I that about previous BMW issues/bikes that have been posted about a million other places in the internet. We have all read them we don't need to rehash them in every thread.

BMWs are expensive enough!

Whose is going to pay for that level of QC?

Look at the level of QC NASA used on the Space Shuttle. You never get perfection.

It is not a realistic expectation.

My Dealer Didn't Care

My dealer didn't care what you wanted on a bike you were going to order. When I ordered mine it was a minimal refundable deposit. Maybe they take a bigger deposit on ones with less popular packages.
