In Jausiers, looking for a BMW shop

My wife and I are on tour in this area and are in need of a shop for what sounds and feels like a bad bearing in the final drive. I am going to call ADAC for assistance but any input on shops that can address this issue would be appreciated.

We are from Alaska on our third summer holiday in Europe. Our bike, 1150GS, is stored in Heidelberg during the winters. We have over 89000 miles on the bike with no mechanical issues until now.

OUr trips to date are here if interested: http://web.mac.com/usbygs/Site/Welcome.html

Again, thanks for any input on this issue.

Thank you! ADAC is on the way and we will start with them for the initial assessment of the problem. They then decide that if it can't be fixed here it will to a BMW shop. Life on the road is always an adventure...

Bummer - the dreaded BMW Final Drive issue. Much discussed on the LDRider list. As much as I want a GS, I'll stick with my VStrom for a bit more.

Sounds like you're one of Stephan's customers - I'll be picking up my bike (not the VStrom) in July for a couple of weeks. It will be spending a couple of years as Stephan's "guest".

Good luck on the repairs.

Bike is fixed in Gap at the BMW shop. Don't know the extent of the repairs, but think is was just the rear bearing in the final drive. We only have 89,341 miles on it... first time our bike has had an issue.

ADAC covered towing and rental car. All is good - we toured with the car for a few days. ADAC is a must and worked well for us!

We have kept our bike at Stefan's for several years now. What a great way to go and and Stefan runs a first class operation. We highly recommend him. We leave his place July 19th for Alaska... Home... work....
