Anyone know where I can find a "free" BMW forum, similar to this one?

I've been trying to find one, but all have yearly fees. $49 or even 39 pound sterling.....

For those prices I can buy a new front tire in the RSA.





O crap...... I might have just given the admins an idea here...... :censored: :rotflmao:

Pretty sure that's a hint-clue-warning about how BMW ownership itself goes  :thumbs:

I was in a BMW forum back in the day (it was a car forum). Getting valuable info was impossible as no matter what issue you had, people would just recommend you take it to the dealer. They also love saying IMHO.

Example:
Me: hi guys, new here. I don't have my owner's manual, can someone tell me what the recommended pressure is for tires?
Guy1: IMHO I just take it to the dealership when the service light comes on, I let them take care of it.
Guy2: How would you even add air to it? Just take it to a shop IMHO.
Guy3: You don't have your owner's manual? I read mine cover to cover twice before ever driving the car. It's very important IMHO.

At the bottom of the page
https://www.svrider.com/forum/forums.php
are a number of model-specific BMW fora.

I frequent the SV650 one and it's ok, don't know about the BMW ones.

Have patience. I am a forum admin. I have had to restrict the registration process because we have 40 to 60 russian spammers attempting to register every day. The 4 or 5 that are not caught by our spam net I have to review individually.

An Audi motorcycle comes with (and needs) a 5 year warranty, after which you throw it away.

Thanks Freebird, appreciated.

I managed to find one specific to the K1600. I'll definately go have a look at your suggested forum though.

Yea

That one is definitely Boxer oriented. A great community that has been passed down over the years. Admin/Owner is passing it on in a the gentlemanly manner that is a hallmark of that community. Great read.  Thread titled "It's Time to Move On."

There are free BMW motorcycle sites. I am on bmwsporttouring.com and k1600.com. Lots of great folks and information. You'll find a lot of activity on those boards because, as you know BMW's are always breaking and prohibitively expensive, so most of us are either fixing our BMW or are too broke to go out.

Sorry, could not resist the hyperbolic reaction to anything BMW related.   :D
