    Today I saw that BMW is recalling 150 000 GS and GSA for telelever check worldwide.
    I am glad I bought a 2016 crosstourer after hesitating to buy a 2017 gs

    Specifically least we on the road longer just think I need my GS needs a service the Back log.

    So the chance of the rear shaft seizing at 150 mph isnt serious?

    Honda recalled all CT's and I believe changed the majority of them since 2012

    The above poster has a good point although the 150mph is higher than my limited to 130 bike could ever attain.  Having said that, I would prefer to have a failure at the rear of the bike vs. the front just for the slightly increased chance that I could "ride" it out over a longer distance before my rear has to start grinding pavement.

    Still a bummer for BMW, but sometimes pushing the engineering envelope leads to failures and that is an acceptable gamble for many buyers.

    The thing is with BMW flat twins. RT/GS/R. Is a lot of them have done big mileages. What you don't know is how much has it cost to do those mileages. My brother has a RT  he is selling it due to the cost of regular " wear and tear"
