Can't ride the bike because of the lockdown. My warranty ends in July. Geico gave me a rebate. How about BMW extending warranties.   :001:

Doubt it, it's not BMW's fault the world is in lockdown....but good luck trying..!! :084:

I suspect it would be similar to someone who normally doesn't ride their bike for months on end.....would BMW extend the warranty because I don't ride the bike??....Highly unlikely.

I was just jesting out of boredom. Would be a nice gesture from BMW though.

Since my warranty was running out, I was putting together a deal on a leftover 19, when the lockdowns started. Waiting to see what goes on after the lockdowns.

I'm still debating with myself whether I should get the new 2020....still yet to ride one though... :084: :027:

Nothing wrong with my current '17 model though....has just passed 30k km this morning.

BMW extended the warrantee on my S1000XR by two months. The instrument cluster has a mark on the inside that appears that water leaked in.
It is getting replaced.

Not sure if I like the looks of the new XR. I had a good deal going on a 19. I'll see what happens when things get back to more normal times.

I'll reserve judgement until I actually see one in the flesh. :001: :169:

The '20 XR's have pretty much got nothing in common with the earlier XR's...Different frame, different engine, different exhaust, different bodywork etc, etc......so we can basically forget about the possibility of interchangeable parts between the Gen-1 and Gen-2.
