My version - fact.
Your version - fiction. ;D ;D

I forgot to add, there was a KTM with battery problems, needed a jumpstart every time, but there was also a 650GS ridden by a woman, 2 weeks after a service, battery ran flat because...........the dealer FORGOT to tighten the battery terminals...... :o

One GS lost it's rear seat, .............. Adv technically incorrect, something can only be lost if not found, and Mines found!! ;D :ricky:

Ok, one GS seat FELL off... ;D ;D Fortunately it was found. Did anyone lose a KTM seat? ;D

In all honesty though, this is a problem on the 1200GS, quite a few have fallen off various bikes over the years, probably not covered under warranty either..... :pot:

I must be honest - after I read this yesterday - I went home and inspected my rear seat. Must say, I cannot see how it can just 'fall off' (unless not properly installed by mistake)... Unless I'm missing an operational defect of some sort?!?

BMW seats fall off because the riders are always standing.
No enough downward pressure. ;D :imaposer:

But then again - the average BMW rider would not even miss his seat if it fell off. :pot:

Seriously, they DO just moer off, Ama ride ride lost one as well. Don't know why, they do seem very secure.

I lost mine after I opened it up to get out the front shock setting tool. I did not replace it properly. Its somewhere between Worcester and Robertson, next to the Breederivier....

Agree I was in a hurry and did not take enough care, I usually give the seat a good whack with the heel of my hand, but I theeenk I forget Seh!!

Strange phenomenon that, moering the seat very hard, I just GENTLY push the seat down and hear a gentle 'click'. ;D ;D :pot:
