Has BMW been bad to you? Did you buy a New BMW lemon? Have you spent too long at the service shop, dealing with "technicians" who think you're an idiot? Did the electrics start failing? Did your beautiful New BMW start stalling? What about that transmission? Did BMW tell you it was your imagination? Did your sub-frame crack? Did they promise they'd call you soon to arrange something?

Don't worry you're not the only one who bought a BMTroubleU, but now you can tell the world your real "BMW Experience" by simply emailing your story and images to rayone2.3456 AT blogger.com you need to replace ' AT ' with an '@' cos I get too much spam (privacy statement)

BMW called me

Scott Norman called me this evening Wednesday 14th July, said he saw the ebay auction (I told him it was on there last week) and would like to work something out.

He said he'd try and have it worked out by the weekend.

Of course that was a BMW weekend; 2 weeks later I call him and he says he was away for a week and still trying to work something out.

Scott Rioz (auction winner) still hasn't replied to my emails. I think it's too far fetched to believe BMW could have bid on the bike as a prank, and there's no way Scott Norman would use Scott Rioz... but I did also email the marketing manager Miles Davis at BMW, so maybe...

I spoke too soon

Scott Rioz hasn't replied to my emails he has 0 feedback. The prospects of this being a serious bid are diminishing.

I called Steve @ Fraser

I called Steve at Fraser's to see if we can work something out before the bike gets sold. He asks me to come in the next day.

I turn up on Saturday 10th of July.

After a lot of standing and waiting I test ride a GS1200... didn't think much of it.

They inspect my bike and offer me a $14,000 trade in deal for a new K1300R... woohoo I'm so happy, not! If they'd included a dog biscuit I may have said OK.

Look my bike is like new.

I would just like to note that Fraser Motorcycles have been fantastic throughout my ordeal, they didn't even sell me the bike, they've let me try a couple others and have tried to arrange something where they don't lose money.

Thank you Fraser.
