I think that's true for ALL BMWs, the fanboys do a very good job of keeping the brand image. I know my BMW riding friends sure do, all of the sudden I realized that having cam chains stretch, waterpumps break, clutches break and stator failures is just "normal".

Me: Has anything gone wrong on your bike?
BMW Owner: No, I've done just normal maintenance (after replacing the clutch and stator).

Me: That's a pretty bike! (2013 GS1200 Adventure)
BMW Owner: I love my BMWs, I've never had any problems with them.
Me: What BMW did you had prior to this one?
BMW Owner: 2011 GS1200 Adventure, sold it because it was getting too old.
That conversation went on, basically the guy never keeps any bike for more than 2 years.

I think that they make them sign a NDA at the dealership or something like that.
