excellent post....
one comment about that statement of your's above

maybe not YOUR family's dealership... but, i certainly hope you know that folks on this forum know more than the tech folks at 75% of the dealerships in the US

we can spend hours talking about how BMW wouldn't admit they had a problem with the OLD ECU on the K1200GT...
until everyone on the 'net screamed about their "idling at 3,000 rpm" issues, etc...

maybe YOUR dealership quickly understood the WARPED AIRBOX issues
but... most wouldn't admit them

you might not know that i am a pediatrician....
so..... no one hates internet rumors (about immunizations, etc) more than me.....

but... sometimes, a forum can be a GOOD thing.... right?

Live life like you mean it... but take your family and friends (and DOGS) along for the "ride"
