    I don't think a Pirelli would've stopped that either  :008: :008:

    This is the part where you try to go after whoever left that there/council, get rejected, then end up claiming on your own insurance and #### for someone else's negligence...

    Looking at the damage - is it possible that the bolt has been punched through the tyre against the front of the swinging arm?   Have you checked that for damage?

    No matter the financial cost - I think you have had a lucky escape. :028:

    I'd start looking at used wheels, BMW want probably close to 2 grand for OEM cast ones...

    OK guys just to follow up on this: I just got the bike back yesterday. The BMW repair shop here in Phoenix had to order the wheel from Germany and it was the very last one the factory had. I guess i got lucky and really a month wasn't too bad all things considered. The bill was $2,700 USD and insurance paid it all.

    My wife said " maybe this means you're not supposed to have a motorcycle." I said "No, it means I need a spare for when these things happen."

    Peace my brothers and sisters  :002: :002: :002:

    Good one on insurance covering it  :028: BMW ask theft level prices for OEM wheels...
