Even more dangerous than Echo's Trolling.

It is motorcycle related.

To perform some aspects of service on BMW motorcycles requires they be hooked up to their computer. The customer can't do his own work. He has to pay BMW if he wants it done.

Another reason not to buy BMW. Problem is more and more manufacturers are following BMW s lead.

Echo, you need to read it again. This time, pay attention to the words, the sentences they create, and what those sentences mean.

Whether you are prevented from working on your vehicles by law or by devices of the manufacturer......it's the same thing.

Absolutely 100% false.

You have a serious and real problem with telling the truth.
Labeling it as your "opinion" does not change the simple fact that you are a Liar.

Stop the constant lies.

Why do this to yourself?

The psychiatrists would tell you "He's not worth it!"

The issue is I'm worried about you. I'm afraid you're going to stroke out on us if you keep getting so worked up about these disagreements. Or wind up on a one way trip to the laughing academy.

I'm entitled to my opinion. I'm entitled to express it it. Your attempts to make my side of the story into something it's not indicates a warped mind. Just because you disagree doesn't give you the right to say the crazy things you accuse me of.

Let it go! Stop trying to control everything! Peace out already!

This will be a case of it being illegal to work to your vehicle. Any part of it they can say has anything to do with the computer - and they'll find a way to tie everything to the computer. Brakes? Why yes, judge, the computer monitors the braking system for safety reasons, like ABS. Fuel injection? Why yes, judge, the computer controls for emissions reasons the fuel injection system and all components involved in fuel delivery.

If you can't see that doing anything at all to your own bike could conceivably listed as illegal, then you really need a course in the law. This has nothing to do with computer interfaces on bikes, and whether or not you need specialty tools. Lots of little repair places can (and do) purchase or build interfaces. Going along with it will put those places out of business.

Echo YOU are a Liar.
YOU are responsible for the closing of this site.
In this case it is all about YOU.
