    I was told that the factory shuts down July and will likely retool for 2015 RT models when production on the RT restarts. Mostly with the same 2014 RT parts, just new paint and the keyless options.

    What about options? I have about $3000 of BMW options like tank bag, top case, and sports exhaust.
  3. A Lecture Really?

    While I don't buy the hyperbola and BMW bashing, I absolutely do feel *entitled* to ride my new RT. I accept that nothing is perfect not BMW and certainly not me. Everyone reacts differently and...
  4. Formalized Plans by Tomorrow Close of Business

    I was told that BMW is formalizing a list of options for 14'RT owners that will be communicated (to dealers) no later than close of business tomorrow. (That's right Friday the 13th. Funny that they...

    I would not recommend anyone ride after BMW said to not ride the bike. You will be responsible for anything that goes wrong, plain and simple. pjmaszczak, personally I want to give BMW a break here...
  8. Double check that

    My understanding when I talked to corporate was that BMW would contact the local dealer for me and work something out. You might want to double check with corporate, or then again maybe I heard...
  9. No Shocks

    From what I can tell there is only *one* manufacturer of ESA shock that will fit this bike and they totally muff'd it up. I don't expect any RTs are being manufactured, but that's just speculation...
  10. Looks like it will take all summer for a fix

    BMW corporate is saying that the current estimated date is August for a recall and the fix will come after that.:banghead In other words, no update until August. They say that they can provide...

    BMW preemptively contacted customers and is preparing the recall filing. See the attachment from post #64, this is what BMW has emailed to me as well. I think it explains everything that has been...
  12. Dealer Response

    I believe all dealers where told to call anyone who had the ESA on the new 14'RT (which is practically everyone), so all your dealer had to do was to look at who bought the 3 bikes and give them a...
  13. Contact with Corporate

    I tried emailing corporate today. I made a pretty simple inquiry asking what the problem was and the timeline to resolve; I also mentioning that I had travel plans. I would like to know if anyone...

    Now I Get It!

    So around town I?ve thought shift assist was a meh-whatever, clever but not necessary really. Sometimes clunky even and I tended to use the clutch mostly. But after one hundred miles on the twists...

    High RPM Shift Assist

    I just finished the break-in and had to leave town so I am not riding for a couple of weeks.

    I was just wondering how well shift assist works on the 2014 RT at higher rev ranges like 6000+. Has...

    Good Luck AC

    I had some very bad experiences at the OKC BMW dealership before they closed. I don?t know AC Spencer, but he has his work cut out for him to reverse the extraordinarily bad reputation that OKC BMW...

    14 RT Mirrors with Top Box

    I added the BMW rear box last week and had no rear view issues with it. I can't even tell it's there. Nice piece of luggage with the carpet, optional LED brake-light, internal light and central...

    Performance!

    Last week I drove 30 miles on the interstate between 75 and 85 mph before I realized that I was only in 5th gear. The balancing of this engine is brilliant. To top it off I was getting 50 mpg. ...

    I'll add a top box in a couple of weeks, so no not yet. I think these mirrors work better for me because they just stick out a bit wider and they are so low I don't see how a top box will interfere,...

    4 days, 400 miles

    So shift assist is cool, but I haven't totally got the hang of it. When I get it right it's smooth, super fast and puts a smile on my face, but when I get it wrong it's a clunk and lurch (but still...

    2014 RT Mirrors are better than expected

    I now have a few days and 400 miles on my new 2014 1200 RT and the mirrors are far better than I expected. They have moved these out and down just a bit from my 1150RT and walla I can see just about...

    4 mirrors are better than 2

    This will be one of the first upgrades I hope to make on my RT. I didn't see a good way to add mirrors in the short time that I looked at my bike last week before leaving town. My last RT got new...
