High Youtube Posting Activity

Wow...

I note a huge number of owner posted videos over the past 4 weeks. I think this is mostly being generated by high enthusiasm from new owners as BMW continues to fill the supply channels for all the areas of the world that have been hungry for a low cost BMW motorcycle and are just now getting deliveries!

YouTube one month filter for G310R - 2280 new posts
https://www.youtube.com/results?sear...IIBA%253D%253D

YouTube one month filter for G310GS - 1250 new posts
https://www.youtube.com/results?sear...IIBA%253D%253D

Let us hope that all this activity is an indicator for how well the G310 is faring in this new (for BMW) market segment!
We need to have the G310 become a huge success for BMW as well as the motorcycle world. The more that are sold, the more after market support will become available which will be good for all!

Unfair review from some fellow in the UK

I saw this video on YouTube and the fellow was totally biased against the GS and said nasty things.


He has gotten numerous comments about his poor behavior and name calling, and I think he deserves some more negative comments from viewers! I have to wonder how much experience he has at riding....

If anyone here on the forum wants to put in their two cents, I would appreciate you commenting at the video.
I watched a couple of his other "reviews" and he seems to be OK with other bikes that I think have issues, but he did not seem to pick up on,

I can't believe I managed to watch it all the way through. He never gave the bike a chance - he was biased against it before he even rode it. He can't get his head round the fact that corners have to be cut when selling a motorcycle at the G310GS price. He is probably one of those people who believe that anything less than 1200cc is not a real motorcycle.

Most of the time I respect criticism/negative feedback on most stuff money can buy, since some aspects do not appeal to everyone. However, when I see reviews that are biased before even interacting with said object it gets on my nerves. This guy is a joke.

You’re more patient than I am. I made it to his difficulty managing an urban turn around 5:00 and said “f this”... it’s just like the professional naysayers that do negative book reviews on Amazon. They are generally doing so at someone else’s behest. I suspect that to be the case here as I found nothing he said to be consistent with my own experience. One or two things could be a difference in expectation/opinion. But everything? Sorry not buying it.
