Wimp!

I pulled out of Kentucky Sunday Morning at 7:00 a.m. and the temp was 34 degrees!. Three hours later (I still had not stopped) on interstate 70 East the temp was 39 in Zanesville Ohio, that is when the engine let go, pushed the connecting rod on number three through the block.

Sitting there for almost an hour before the wrecker ame, and during that time not one person, bike or car even slowed down.

BMW K1200GT It was the first big trip, and the dealer just gave it a clean bill of health even after I complained about the noise and they said it was nothing to worry about. Sad day

Question....

Was the dealer in NY State and if so ...? To the East or west of say I 81 ?

No names if you do not want to say so.

Reason I am asking is that I had a similar issue with a GS years ago with an NY State dealer and I am wondering if it is the same organization

I actually took the Bike to two places that were both RIGHT! Hieds told me they thought it was a rod/crank issue. I also stopped at Max's and they thought it was a connecting rod. Buy it went to a dealer in N.C. that had done the warrenty work on it. They said no way. Stated the noise was "Half crank speed noise" (Bullshit) and that the new hydralic cam chain tensioner had failed so they replaced it. Bike still had the noise. They said it was no problem, ride it. So I did. I am jus happy it did not end with me sliding across the interstate or worse.

The Bike is in Maryland now, so whats next............ I am pennyless but not bikeless.
