BMW sal my n nuwe bike gee, of my geld terug. End of story.

Maar jy ry 'n KTM.  Hoekom BMW verantwoordelik hou?   :imaposer:

Ek ry al 4mnde lank n LC, was net te bang om dit hier te erken  :peepwall:

Nee,  maar dit kan ek goed verstaan.   Ons hou dit ons geheim.    :lol8:

Ek dog eers dit was jou bike daar langs die pad met die electronic rear wheel, maar jy sal mos nooit 600kms kan opsit in net vier maande nie. :peepwall:

Absolutely no baiting here.

It simply struck me as odd that a disintegrating tyre, and I know that at high speed they can cause damage, could actually render any bike useless to the degree that
a possible insurance write-off is discussed!

I have witnessed big damage on bikes after tyre blow-outs, but then only because the riders went down with the bike, and the resultant crash-damage ensued.

This bike did not crash. :xxbah:

What is significant here, and something everybody seemed to have overlooked, is that this is a "Adventure, all-terrain" machine.

Yet tire shredding on a tar road pulls almost all of it's own electrics through it's own poephol.......

Better not take these babes offroad. ;)


I thought the same thing.

Ek het in September laas jaar n soort gelyke geval gehad.
Gelukkig nie n blow out gehad nie.

Het n superbike gejaag op R21 Noord vanaf Voortrekker weg in Kempton.
Net voor daai garages in die middel tussen Kempton en Centurion toe kom my liggie aan vir die Agter wiel en wys preassure = 0.0.
Ek slaan toe brieke aan en bring my spoed af na so 140kmh en doen n paar vinnige bewegings om te voel of daar iets snaaks aan gaan maar kon ernstig niks abnormaal voel nie.
Dog toe vir myself dalk is dit omdat ek so vinnig ry dat die sensors nie meer kan optel nie.
Toe is die dice aan want nou het ek plek verloor met die superbike en moet op vang.
Soos ek weer by die superbike by bly pla dit my dat die liggie nog steeds my uit kak.
Ek besluit toe om die superbike verby te vat en vang die Nelmapius afrit want daar is darm n garage naby op die hoek.
Ek het toe stadig begin af sleg en weer eens op 140kmh voel ek regtig niks.
120kmh toe voel ek jiss maar hier is klein bietjie fout.
80kmh jaaaaa hier is seriously fout.
Daar was toe n 5mm groot koel ronde gat.
Kon toe na die garage limp en patch kit koop plug hom en verder ry.
Gelukkig was dit net n paar km maar wie weet hoeveel km dit vat op n pap wiel om te delaminate.


Daarna was ek na die kalahari bash toe met die selfde tyre en het eventualy n minor blow out gehad op die sout pan na ek top spoed gedoen het vir so 5km.

Soooooooo.
As daai verdomde liggies aan kom moet jy stop.
Hulle is nie verniet daar nie.
Freedom is when you get to a T-junction and think to yourself.
AAAAAAAAAAAAGH I think I'll go left.

Danie ... Danie ... Danie ... het jy al klaar vergeet wat jy gisteraand kwyt geraak het?

This is about you declaring the BMW an "ALL-TERRAIN" vehicle which it is not and never was.  Not seen as such by anyone, nor marketed as such.  Then your argument that riding on tar and on dirt makes a vehicle a all-terrain vehicle.  In other words, turning all-surface to all-terrain.   That was the baiting part.

You can ride a D/S bike on tar, and on dirt. This is termed "all-terrain".

Man, my skoonma was erg opgewonde om te hoor jy verklaar haar Smart For2 'n All-Terrain Vehicle!   :imaposer: :imaposer: :imaposer:

Ons gaan more so bietjie die "terrain" aanpak met daai Smart karrretjie van haar.

Duel purpose now = all-terrain?    :lol8:

"BMW Motorrad's support was integral to the success of Long Way Round and Long Way Down. Ewan, Charley and their cameraman, Claudio Von Planta, were given three special-edition Enduro R1150 GS Adventure all-terrain motorcycles - designed and engineered for long distances and off-road terrain. BMW offered considerable technical help and practical riding equipment to Ewan McGregor, Charley Boorman and their support team. The BMW GS celebrates its '30 Years GS' as the most successful BMW model series ever." - http://www.longwayround.com/team_partners_sponsors.htm  :biggrin:

His tire pressure sensors would have warned him of slow inflation.   I doubt he could have missed the flashing triangle on the dash.

So he started of with a flat ......slowly inflate and then the shit started???? ??? ???
Courtesy from Grizz: In this day and age religion is often frowned upon, but I have met some of the most amazing people from various religions over time.
From Buddhists to Sikhs, through Muslims and Christians and everything in between, there are many good people out there and if you do not allow yourself to be swayed by petulant religious opinion, the world is an awesome place with the odd idiot in between trying to make it rubbish for others.

If I was the owner I'd push the bike over from its centre stand to ensure a write off.

No!  Not like that at all.  I will give you one more day to figure it out.  :ricky:

It is because we wear only BMW branded knickers.  It comes pre-knotted.  That is what make it so expensive.

Chaps & Chapelinas - we can speculate as much as we have time for - but the fact remains, instead of all the technology - this poor guy lost a rear tyre AND it destroyed the majority of a 200k bike - not what I would call a good investment !!!  :-\ It couldn't even charge his new Samsung S6 !!!  :lol8:
He told me this: I'm actually a KTM guy - but I thought it's time for a "Gentleman's bike" ... Poor guy ...  :eek7:

I have to wonder, if a similar tire failure would not cause similar damage on almost any bike with underseat battery and black boxes.
