PS...Sorry, what is the message or point? That there are a lot of switches? Are you saying that there is a lot of circurity involved in shuting off the engine with a kill switch?

It would seem that a few of recent "EWS" victims do not stop the engine by using the handle bar kill switch OR the sidestand kill back to the drawing board...

Hesitate to ask...but has anyone gotten any explanation either directly from BMW, BMWNA or a BMW dealer on why their bikes are immobilized with the "EWS"? I still am hoping for word on-high....eventually it has to come; doesn't it?
