What sums this bike up for me?
 
* had Koni back shock absorber
 
* bad front shock absorber
 
* oil leaking cylinder head<ref>Typical for the XL500 engine</ref>
 
* something loose in the exhaust
 
* simple tech, easy to fix and maintain
 
* good handling
 
* Schuh mount and cases, looking not very stable but never let me down
 
* won't start if not used for 14 days. Also when temperatures below zero. Unfortunately the FT is missing the XL's kickstart. :-(
 
* pretty ugly :-)

* weak Sachs back shock absorber, died after 15Mm, exchanged it for one with handwheel for adjustment, luckily I could convince someone in italy<ref>Yes, I had to talk to some italian call center...*sigh*</ref> to get it on warranty
 
* Hepco and Becker sucks - those folks even denied that there is such thing as resonance frequency, which was in fact exactly at 4000rpm, wenn the whole mount began shaking and buzzing
 
* loosing screws

What sums this bike up for me?
 
* Badly designed ABS, if she was not moved for some days (especially winter), or it was below zero, ABS won't initialize for the next 100km<ref>You might think, that especially in winter ABS should work - I agree. BMW obviously doesn't.</ref>
 
* Badly designed rear brakes, when heavily breaking<ref>Okay, by "braking" I mean: Drive downhill as fast as possible. Braking in the last moment until ABS kicks in. Repeating this for >40 turns</ref> (f.e. when driving down hill like at [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stelvio_Pass Stelvio Pass]) the brakes fail
 
* Badly sized battery, when temperature below zero she most likely won't start (even if you have an fully loaded (but cold) battery)
 
* Very comfortable
 
* Very reliable<ref>besides the battery-, ABS- and the braking-issue, but that were ''minor'' (Okay - probably not minor. It's probably the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reality_distortion_field reality distortion field] (or just the need for justifying the price) problems :-) )</ref>
