<< Well, you don't have to look too hard in the BMW CCA editorials to find
someone who's had some nasy experience with a major component failing on a
Some good points BUT......................what I question is your original
statement:"The cars are no longer made by skilled and educated German craftsmen
and engineers. They're made by underpaid workers in the Czek
Republic, Poland, East Germany and underdeveloped places all over the world.
The quality of the cars is suffering"
I'm not sure about the cars but it seems most bike workers are Turks and
Pakastanis, do you know that the cars were ever assembled by "skilled and
educated" Germans? How is skill level measured? "Underpaid workers"? Are they
underpaid if their pay is relatively high in their own country even though very low
in others? You seem to imply that it's impossible for quality to be
maintained anywhere other than Germany, where's the DATA to support that? Even IF
quality has gone down after switching production to other countries that doesn't
necessarily prove that's the causal factor.
I believe in the old statement that "a fish rots from the head". Even IF
problems started when production moved to other countries the cause still resides
And yes, I really like my R1100RSL but superior? It has just as many issues
as anything else.
