Trolling is where "jackasses" come along and say dumb stuff just to stir the pot. Oftentimes, it's things that have been addressed over and over again already. Hence my reaction.
The reality is every manufacturer has issues, especially with new bikes. The internet seems to make everything seem far worse than it really is though. When it comes to BMW, it seems there is a lynch mob of people just waiting to find some sort of fault. Not sure why, but minor things get turned into huge issues online. I wouldn't go so far as saying BMWs are the bulletproof bikes that many people believe, but then again they aren't going to fall apart if you push it across the garage either as many believe.
