If anyone has any suggestions on changes, additions to the forums, please place them here for right now.
I’ll send a not to the powers that be and see what we can do. What would your suggestions of breakdowns be?Hi Svtweb
Several recent posts have highlighted the need for a sub-category within this forum. The purpose would be to further document issues, concerns, and also recommendations to, one would hope, a willing ear within BMW, without that person having to wade through countless threads and unrelated topics. As such, it would serve as an uncluttered conduit between the enthusiasts and the manufacturer. And really there are no better, more qualified enthusiasts than right here at r18forums.com
I'd add reverse wonkiness. I don't expect that there would be a fix on existing bikes, but it's bound to be a topic that comes up repeatedly.Well, off the top of my head, issues we've discussed include 1) left cylinder smoke 2) fuel pump whine 3) transmission failure 4) slow appearance of accessories 5) no service manual. I would add some recommendations like how about adding engine temperature to the dash? and a fuel gauge? The list goes on and on. It'll likely feel like a pit of complaints, but at least it'll be focused in one place. Also it could serve as a place for prospective buyers to gain insight into whatever issues/problems we're encountering.
I think the "Marketplace Everything Else" forum and titling the thread "Looking to swap..." would be a great place to start. Hell, you'd have the first thread in that forumHow about a trade swap page for BMW related gear, accessories? i am a enthusiast collector of Motorcycle vintage gear books clothing etc. Joining a forum is new for me so I do not know if this is appropriate request.
I believe that there is one of those. They are currently talking about sound system and pairing issues.How about a separate sub-forum for the new R18 B and Transcontinental models. I feel there are enough differences between the original and new R18 models to warrant it.
