My name is Fritz, live in Mid-Michigan, been riding BMW motorcycles for over 30 years, just bought a 2014 C650GT. Have lots of questions I hope to get answered on this forum. I'm a retired High School Biology teacher with arthritis, reason I went to a scooter, still want to travel on two wheels.
I got caught in rain today,had to do an hour's riding in the rain.When I got home the area between inside of flex case and main storage comparment,was wet,underneath the seat of my C 600 Sport
Material of flex case was also wet,as well as articles stored underneath the seat.Second time in the rain and both times stuff stored underneath the seat were wet.
Has anyone else had this problem???
(PS Won't help me to contact BMW Customer care,in South Africa it is IMPOSSIBLE

Noticed my side stand noticeably harder to put up and down after riding in the rain
My scoot has 51 miles on it
Living in the Northeast USA riding at this time of year can be dicey.
I tried lubing the side stand with fresh grease as that is what was already on it, no help. I was going to wait for a good day to drive back to the dealer, well, it snowed some this morning.
I decided to give it one more try, this time using a quality machine oil, success, side stand snaps
