The only issue has been the stereo. The MP3 player just does not like to work reliably. 4 software uploads so far... working right now.

General Comments:

The bike goes great, stops great, handles great; everything I would expect from a BMW except the seat... stinks! After 2/3 hours I have to get off and massage the backside.
