It could be my fault.  After some thought and looking at the pictures, all the spots are on the opposite side to the drive shaft? I did spray some dwf on the spoke ends to try stop them from rusting. (Live  100m from the sea). I have cleaned it up and will see if it happens again. If I never post a reply again you'll know I saw I've see my arse without a mirror :imaposer:

Given that there is no diff on a GS, having it leaking oil should be cause for concern!

Jy is lekker deur mekaar , die GS het n gewone diff , ek het myne ingeruil op die GSA , hy kom uit met diff lock.
Better to have it and not need it , than to need it and not have it

RECALL!  RECALL!  RECALL!

BMW recalled all model bikes with spokes because, if you sprat the spokes with oil, it creates dirty, oily spots on the rims!   :ricky:

All those spots show up because of break dust from a 150km ride. Don't think those pads are going to last long......Just done 6000km

The front pads are the problem, on the GS LC I got around 10 000km on them. On the GSA LC I had to replace front pads on 8 000km.

BLIKSEM!!!!

My 2009 did 60 000km on the first set of pads and 45 000km on the second set.  I was a tad hungry on rears though.
