Cruise controller goes crazy

Seems some of the reports I have read on the Cruise control going out has happened to me. When I set the cruise control it will set then a second or two will continue to excelerate until I turn it off or grab clutch or brake.

It's not a slow speed increase it goes high side like a turbine engine can runaway. And since I was looking at a 1500 mile run in 30 hours back down to Germany from Vaasa Finland yesterday I was a little more than annoyed with this! Piss poor parts from BMW is really unacceptable for a bike that is marketed as a World traveler or maybe I missed the small print "around the worlds Starbucks"

A 4000 mile trip in ten days has my bike back to the shop hmmm that is weak sauce in my book!
