That is out here somewhere. I have seen some damage out there too.

Once a guy came up to me that had a R1200C that stopped idling after 5 min.(so he said)
But when he brought the bike all the paint was falling from the engine, inlet rubbers had melted the oil in the engine was burned. After I checked the bike the wires from the hall sensor were melted, that was the first thing that stopped the engine.........

At least we don't have much paint that will fall off
