    Oh Boy - The Propeller Heads are going crazy!

    Found this thread on one of the ummm, you know the brand forums about how it should have been done:

    This is constructive criticism for any BMW employee reading this. Not in any particular order.



    1. Black lits for handle bars


    2. Improved BLUETOOTH


    3. LED lights in side panniers


    4. FIX left pull (hush up for people that say they dont have it)


    5. That fu#$kin rivet plug (you guys know what I am talking about whos taken off there side panels.) get rid of it.


    6. That retarded GPS system you got going on. It reminds me of plugging in a 32X in a Sega Genesis. Integrate like Honda.


    7. Better amp/speakers (darn it just redo the whole thing it's crap) fire alpine or give them a bigger budget dam it.


    8. I know you guys have emission laws but can you make fuel maps for BMW of America exports only god dam?


    9. Fix the windscreen! @80+MPH the bike starts swaying side to side its even worse when you have those air dams open on the sides. I am going to say it. its scary as poop for me and im not afraid to admit that. I am by no means some wheelie genius or expert rider. But I did attend 3 MSF courses and stayed at a holiday inn =)



    10. Fire the guy thats picking the ugliest colors for your bike ASAP!


    11. Signal lights on side mirrors

    I think number 1 was meant to be Back Lights, on switches I suppose.

    The first response:

    "Sounds like maybe you should sell the bike and get something else to suite your needs. I love mine and have no left pull at all. My Nav VI works great!"

    Man these guys can get mean!!  There were a number of things added to the list by other members on this forum.  And we think
    some owners are critical of the Trophy!!

    I'm in agreement with backlighting on the switches, but no complaints on all the other stuff.  OK, maybe a couple more colors would've been nice.  But I think we're a bit happier with our rides!

    No mention of addressing their shaft drive bearing or ABS pump failures? Lol

    I would like the switch gear to be illuminated, never thought about lights for the panniers though, do they mean for the outside or inside I'm wondering? Both can be handy I guess, can never do enough to be seen on the roads nowadays.

    We all have different requirements at the end of the day, I added some lights to the interior of my top box because there's very little light in my works car park, I don't need to go in the panniers otherwise I'd be wanting lights in them too.

    Wow, bummer to buy a new bike and be that disappointed with it.  Most of that stuff should have been readily apparent upon first walk around or test drive though.

    I think that like with their cars, some folk are just suckered in by the badge. :008:
