It wasn't done by the dealer, a specialist with the tool is travelling across the country to fix these issues on bikes that have already been delivered to dealers.

For decades now, BMW Motorrad has been regarded as a frontrunner when it comes to issues of safety in connection with motorcycling. With its innovative strength, BMW Motorrad established itself as a trendsetter very early on and will continue to offer additional safety benefits for motorcycling.
The latest example of the innovative power of BMW Motorrad in this area is the first ever full LED headlight with integrated daytime running light to be used in serial motorcycle production, available as an option for the R 1200 GS. Globally unique, this LED main headlight with daytime running function illuminates the road with a level of brilliant clarity not previously known.
The headlight’s LEDs are strikingly distinctive and powerful with their double glass lenses. The option also includes a rear light with two light bands, making for an even more high-quality rear view.
The switchover between daytime running light and low beam can be set to automatic in the instrument cluster menu.
With daytime running switched on, the motorcyclist benefits from significantly increased perceptibility in the daytime and therefore increased safety. In addition, there is the striking look of the horizontal “U” which - like the light rings in the K 1600 models - will soon become an unmistakable trademark of the new GS.
and this

All of them, cars, bikes etc. Bigass import tax + the 'one time payment'. So basically my bike costs 165000 NOK + 100 000 NOK of extortion money to the govermernt. Add huge fuel prices + yearly road tax + quite good income and we have a Norwegian model.

Meh, dunno. I can live with that. It's not as bad as it sounds. Don't get me wrong, earning money here and spending... well... wherever (upside, everywhere is cheap ) is a dream. Earning here and spending here (at least with more or less entry level software dev paycheck) gives a very decent living standard. Mone is good, prices are a nightmare, but and average 'consumer shopping cart' comes out very nice. F.e. GS is my 6 months income. So not cheap, but something perfectly managable.

I would love though if as a permament resident in Norway I would be allowed to drive a bike registered in lets say Germany or Poland and save up 50% ;)

Sorry for the crapy grammar and flow of thoughs but after the surgery I'm ever so slightly high on painkillers ;) They are good though. If tomorrow feels as good I might go and visit my bike at the dealership :)

Only BMW can charge extra for an "On Board Computer Pro" as nobody wants to be left behind with the "Rookie Computer".

Yes, I'm sure the BMW dealers there are going to be quick to post up some negative information about the new GS

I know that's true. My brother added his R1100RS, and it was six months before his wife noticed that there was a second bike, because they were both red!
