have we reached ridiculous costs to fix yet? and we've only mentioned two common issues for R1200. shall we go down the list of other common issues for R1200? so according to your logic, it doesn't count if you've gone say 40k miles on R1200 and are now being towed to a dealership .. with a probable repair bill that approaches 1/2 value of bike.
"I" never brought up BMW at all, others have. I refuse to debate BMWs because I am often labeled a fanboy, facts be damned.
I am sticking strictly to reliability, not costs. You can debate costs to repair all you like. I'll pass as the costs are a moving target impossible to pin down the criteria of.
