Home! Finally!!! Only took me 4 weeks, 4 days, 8 hours, and 30 minutes, which is only 4 weeks and 4 days longer than I anticipated. But the bike and I are home, which ends this "interesting" experience, and closes out UnRally 2012.

Performed flawlessly. Changed final drive fluid when I got home and it was pretty good. Now I don't have to drop the final drive to drain it. And, I have a two year warranty on all replaced parts and labor. All is good.

Howard, what was the final cost for repairs, had you not had long term policy? Glad you finally got it home.

Repair cost was $3700 in parts, $800 in labor, $4500 total. Western Service Warranty (McGraw Group) cost me about $1100, but it varies from dealer to dealer and bike to bike. They really were pretty good to deal with, and Foothills BMW said that they were very agreeable to using all new parts when very good condition used parts weren't available. I spoke to the claims adjuster several times, and it always was positive. If anyone is looking for an extended warranty, I recommend them highly based on my experiences. They've never turned down a claim from me. I also was very pleased with Foothills BMW in Lakewood.
