Resolution

OK, looks like I need to get a couple bolts and probably washers. It makes me wonder how it could make it thru a QA check. I wondered if it was a 2014 "feature".

disappointing read

BMw must have told CW to tone it down after the 3 way comparison with suzuki and the standard GS. The ups and downs are a joke. Good thing Jimmy Lewis rides better than he writes.
