Requesting Your Help Locating A BMW Contact For Assistance with K1600GT Parts.
I am Don Stanley, a BMW Rider continuously since March of 1969 and a Member of both BMW MOA and BMW RA, RA # is 21856 and MOA # is 24810. I am also very active on the MOA Club #89 website, the MOA Forum and the K1600 Owners Forum. I am asking for your help in locating and identifying a trusted Contact Person for BMW of North America and BMW Motorcycles in Germany.
Long story short, on October 13, 2011 my Son Seth and I aboard our BMW K1600GT struck a large mule deer dead center on Highway 12 halfway between Torrey and Boulder in Utah. Thank goodness we did not go down, even though my son's leg was severely bruised where the deer's carcass hit him.
We were towed up to BMW of Salt Lake City and our 2012 BMW K1600GT has sat there ever since!
This is why I am asking for your help, My Friends. Do any of you know of a Personal Contact within BMW of North America or BMW Motorcycles of Germany that I can contact to get parts for this bike.
For almost 4 months now I've been calling BMW of Salt Lake City, UT weekly to get a status on the repairs on my bike: Answer is always the same ÔÇô we still don't have the parts to repair your motorcycle!
As a 43 year long Owner and Rider of BMW Motorcycles I am as exasperated as the devil over this situation!
4 months of paying AAA Insurance Premiums for a bike that I cannot ride, 4 months lost of my bike's warranty that can never be recovered and 4 months lost in riding a M/C that is my very favorite BMW!
Thank goodness I've my very high mileage Yamaha FJR 1300 to ride, to at least keep me out motorcycling.
Very frustrating, as a 43 year BMW Motorrad Owner and Rider, that the Yamaha Corporation can keep you in parts for your Yamaha, but that BMW of North America and BMW Germany can't support you!
If you My MOA Forum Friend will provide me with a contact person at BMW of North America or BMW Motorcycles of Germany, I would be eternally grateful and would buy you a lunch when I do meet you!
My info: Don Stanley, Cell is 480-440-4666, email is [email]firstname.lastname@example.org[/email] and I'm in Chandler, AZ.
BMW MOA is a Great Outfit!! Happy and proud to be a 32 year Member of our BMW MOA!!
I just want to say how happy and proud I am to be a 32 year Member of the BMW Motorcycle Owners of America. I've already been reassuringly contacted by Ray Zimmerman, Marc Soliere, Jim Wright and Mary Baker and they are going to use their collective influences with BMW NA to get my K1600GT back on the road ASAP!
