2011 BMW G650 GS enduro, with just 95 miles on the bike.

Not a unique event by all accounts

Wow. That photo sent fear through my spine.

I had to go and check mine (2009)but I bet you don't get much of a warning for something like that.

Have you heard of this happening to others? Or was this a freak hard landing?

What did your BMW dealer have to say about it?

Wow, why does anyone buy/ride these after these reports?

But Like Ian says no one posts "another 1000 miles and nothing has gone wrong"
