I'm sure you will be receiving a strongly-worded letter from the BMW Markenauftritt und Ruf Division (Brand Appearance and Reputation Division), notifying you that you are in apparent breach of the Upkeep Claus of the BMW Rider Agreement, and that possible legal action is possible due to your negligence. Please be home tomorrow between the hours of 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. to sign for the registered letter.
I don't know what world you live in, but my BMW's get washed maybe twice a year...as do most of my friends. A reasonably clean windshield and I'm good to go.

Don't be so defensive--and thanks for the plural:

Anyone heard the joke about the Jewish mother at the beach one day? She looks out to the surf, sees something awful, and starts yelling: "Help! My son--the doctor--is drowning!"

Triple dark poser? That front shinko looks like a CT....that's one upping the double dark riders.

Sweet ride you have none the less.

That reminds me, I am a year or two overdue on washing my bike. Oh well, maybe it will rain this week.

Man don't you know ANYthing?! If you hit the front brakes you'll flip over the handlebars!

Geez! Do we have to explain it *again?!*

I suspect, too, that the bike was trailered to The Dragon. Does countersteering even work on raked-out forks?

I don't see any wear on those rotors-- the front brakes may be a poseur bling.
