Fok I can hear the KTM okes already :eek7:

Trust me, I have inside knowledge.

Michnus isn't a poephol.  ;)

Michnus on an HP2???? Rather his sister on a Harley....No chance either way.....
If you can keep your head in the midst of all this confusion, you don't understand the situation!

Glad you are ok, this could have been much worse.

What does BMW have to say about all of this. If I had one, it would be for sale right now, brakes locking for no reason is just no acceptable. I am not sure whether no brakes would be either but holy crap!

Maybe we should change the thread titles on these threads to "xxxxxx down - but up again" once the rider is OK again...

Not exactly what anyone would expect from BMW technology. I bet there are a few 1200 BM owners checking their models and front forks and brakes.

Swift recovery Michnus.

What technology? ABS,immobiliser, traction control? That is nowadays to be found on some pretty down-market cars as well, what's the big deal?
With the cars the wheels do not break off though.
BM riders, check your bikes thoroughly before and during each ride, I've always had a vague suspicion that there might be less reliability and durability
surrounding this brand than BMW and some owners would like us to believe.
