    That's not a smoke trail, it's vapourized S smeg from trying to keep up.

    This is incontrovertable evidence there is something wrong with ABS on this bike...

    If you look closely, you can see that the rear wheel is spinning slightly faster than the front.

    I'd take it to the dealer staight away, the stand cut-out switch is faulty.
    Has any other owners experienced this problem?
    Should we have a poll on this matter?
    Is it due to the ABS glitch?
    Has there been a campaign for this problem?
    Should we email BMW??????

    I can confirm the model shown is the non ABS model (and therefore unaffected)

    The ABS models are easy to spot as they have either stoved in front ends or brown stains on the seat.

    Ah that explains the delay on the GS release.
    They must have discovered the solid fuel boosters (installed in the paniers) o-rings have a problem and are delaying release until they can get the gaffer (Duct) tape to stick properly.

    What you're all failing to notice is that there's no bloody pilot on this bike !!! Spat off by the ABS ???

    And another thing. How the bloody hell did it get there in the first place? Either there's a gas better than Helium in the tank bag and panniers and it's floated off like a balloon at a Sunday Fete or it was on another cargo ship that's run aground on Jupiter and spewed it's load all over the universe!

    I've taken a close look at this photo, and I'm pretty sure it's a fake. It's lit from the rider's right and the sun is on the left. Wait, speaking of rider, there isn't...Oh, well that doesn't make sense either.
