You can take it as egotistical, but it's just my jackass playful personality This is ADV Rider afterall, not some stuffy regulated site correct?
yes....
correct
but....
i've been around here a long, long time
and i know exactly how this place is

but....
you represent a DEALER and NOT yourself
so...
you should have 2 identities around here (maybe you do)
when you are posting as an individual... fire away at will... like we all do

but....
when you are wearing the badge of BMW of Atlanta.... one of the most respected dealers in the south...
maybe you could be a little more helpful without a condescending underlying tone

thanks, in advance

So my family owns and operates a dealer which my screen name is very similar too and I cannot have a personality or opinion because $$$$ is involved? That's kinda F'ed up but never surprises me when thats the first hand thrown. Am I harsh at times? maybe, but it's not personal as you evidently have taken it. Multi-tasking between several duties here on top of playing on the forums and seeing a re-occuring theme going gets me in a no BS mode. I'll know in the future that you're susceptible to taking things a tad personal potentially, point taken. Fact of the matter is and we all make mistake every now and then remains that if you're not 100% bet the farm sure then you might be best to ask a question then make incorrect statements for some 100k folks to read and guess who gets to deal with the aftermath????????????

That's right Moi, mainly the service department. So I have a pet peeve with internet myths and how they get started.

Now that was half way on the pedestal, You really wouldn't like me if you didn't know me when I get on a roll, but that's another story, take it for what is worth, but it's not worth getting your feathers in a ruffle, it's gentleman's ribbing around here for the most part, at least my take on it.

Pictures later, really not much to it. Pull back the plastic cover immediately in front of the ignition switch, pull antennae harness out, cut tie wrap on wiring harness to ignition switch hardware, plug antennae harness into secondary known working antennae, hold plugged in secondary antennae very close to the key while turning on the ignition. If the bike now starts you had a bad antennae. If not you have a software or wiring fault and are screwed without the stealer,........errrr I mean dealer

you are a dealer.... and you should speak to us as if we were at your counter in your shop
so.... please remember that you should be a bit nicer to the MANY of us on the forum who've spent plenty of money at your dealership.... LIKE ME


thanks for the info
i appreciate being set straight
I am typing to you as if you're sitting here at the shop and I am speaking to you, only difference is you can't see the my overly charming demeanor shining through,.........curse of the internet

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

so....
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?

i certainly agree with that remark
i've been around here a long time.... and i love this forum

sorry if i was overly defensive as well

i appreciate your expertise in the matter....
perhaps.... YOU might want to organize a GROUP BUY for the ring antenna?

I did not any detect any condescension, but lacking a tone of voice and facial expression, you can in hear what you want.

As a dealer, Bobby gives us the facts and clarifies some erroneous internet rumors, and we appreciate it. If he's selling, he knows the Vendors forum is for vendors, but giving us often difficult to find facts has even more weight coming from a dealer who knows what he's talking about.
