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.
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)
