Surely the rider should have felt the vibration caused by the delamination, Just asking.

See that silver ECU/control box lying on the tyre?

Maybe the tyre was not to blame at all, and that box came loose and damaged the tyre?

Ja, maybe it came loose, fell straight through the mudguard and damaged the tire. 

Maybe he rode over a Suzuki badge and those sharp edges of the S did the damage.



Maybe the rider farted real hard and that destroyed everything, from ECU to tire.   :imaposer:

I have never seen a tyre failure wreck a motorcycle so completely, without an actual accident. If my saying so hurt BMW feelings so bad that you resort to calling me a
"hater and troll" , be my guest.

If the 180km/h is correct he may have another challenge. Much too fast for that bike before the 1000km service.

BMW and the insurance will use that to their advantage.

PS: I also think under inflation. I rode those Anakees from Bloem to Cape Town at 180-200 with no issues.

No way, mine at 5000rpm at 140km/h, photo in OP 6000rpm

I am not a brand BITCH,  I ride and enjoy my bike, the company I am with and the stress relief I get from a ride. If you ride a Klr, Bmw , Ktm or a fucking Vespa and keep up with the pack, then you are most welcome to ride with me. This chap had  kak luck and now the Wilddog CSI are ass reaming the mans misfortune! Well done guys!

Nope.  You need to prove what you just said, i.e. that it has never happened on any other bike.

Anyway, who cares?  The bike is destroyed.  We know you will go on and on and on "tot vervelens toe" to tell all how kak a Beemer is.  We know what your opinion is of the bike, so basically, you are not saying anything new.  Come on dude, time to come up with something new and exciting about the kakness of the BMW.

GO!!!

This guy had severe damage to bike despite not having the same degree of de-lamination as rider in OP's picks.

Yet again another thread that may have been informative and beneficial to the members of the forum (and not just BMW riders) gets derailed by the resident ***hat.
It is incredible that he might even believe the crap that he spews.
I really would like to know what caused this issue as it will benefit us all but the anti BMW troll has to bore us with his shit again

I see many posts where people disregard that the damage to the electronics could and probably did alter the dials. Not saying he was riding slowly just saying that the dials arent a reliable way to determine the speed he was doing.
