Here is a new take on this pestering problem. A fellow rider, who worked for the radio and electronics department of Siemens, told me that the ring antenna malfunction could be a result of it resetting when a celphone is placed near it or when the bike is parked near a cell site. According to him, what BMW is attempting with the newer issue of ring antennas is trying to find a frequency range which will make it unaffected by celphone transmissions. However, we cannot of course take this as gospel truth. Therefore, it would really be in order if BMW finally comes out in the open to explain to us the results of their investigation, if there is one, and level off with its customers on how they will solve this issue. This problem is too --cking serious to be met with apathy and defeaning silence.
