Other Owners Of The Same Model bmw Motorcycle (r1100gs And R1150gs, 1995-2001) Have Experienced Similar Failures, Including A Recent Near Fatality When The electrical System And All Lights Failed At Night. The Owner Was Almost Killed By A Truck. The Problem Results From Cracked Insulation In The Wiring Harness, Causing Short Circuiting And Varying Degrees Of electrical Failure.
