Sorry I don't have better answers.
Wow. This statement, to me, is HUGE. Not knocking you Joel in ANY way, (I greatly respect your opinions and insight and appreciate your candor) but there are a couple of other problems with our bikes which you have downplayed. Your general opinion, as I have interpreted it, is that the perceived problems with the rear hubs and upper shock mounting bolts are due to the internet's ability to magnify the scope of problems, and not real problems.

For you to agree there is a problem means, to me at least, that there is definitely a problem.

Now we need to find a solution. I'm assuming BMW won't acknowlege it or solve it, so it's likely going to be up to us.
