    Before buying BMW K1600

    Immediately after the first ride I reported the following:
    1 very loud running transmission
    2 working very noisy gearbox - switching each gear
    3 missing the ability to run the horn - back when you turn off the motorcycle
    4 starter sometime reacts that he could not turn the engine
    5 Turn up the sound system as the speed increases - despite the fact that this feature is disabled
    In BMW service - they said - everything is OK :)

      Too late; I already have one  ;D .
      Have not experienced any of the 1 to 4 described issues and do not have the sound system.
      Is everything fixed now or is it just the response by BMW Service that everything is like it should be?

        I have not had any problems with my bike at all. The transmission made little noise when breaking in but it was a disconnection between the seat the handle bars and the shifter as it needed training moving between a 2006 Kawasaki 1600 Vulcan and a real bike. :) I love this bike...... Best thing I have ever done besides meet and ask my fiancé to marry me.
