Following the instructions of bmw recall campaign no. 19v-692: transmission that was mailed to me, i called bmw motorcycle roadside assistance and the motorcycle was picked up at my home and taken to dealer pikes peak motorsports. That was november 14, 2019. It has now been over 90 days. Status is still "remedy unavailable". The motorcycle is still at their dealer. I have contacted bmw customer service (mark, 800-831-1117, ext 5811) by e-mail and phone. No action. I bought the motorcycle on may 18, 2019. It is only 9 months old and over 3 of those months it has been recalled at the dealer due to the notice of "increase the risk of a crash". The motorcycle is completely unsafe and unusable. Please help me unwind this transaction. Bmw needs to take their unsafe motorcycle that they cannot fix back, and give me back my money. Thank you

2 issues 1. When reaching speeds of 60+ bike shakes violently during high winds or behind trucks. Switching lanes is even more scary. To enhance this issue all you have to do is raise your wind screen fully and open up the air vents on the sides of the bike. For have your psi on tires at 40 or below. 2. When in rain mode, when i accelerated pass the cap. The bike violented started to retard itself slowing the bike down but the engine making a vut vut vut vut sound while doing it. I had no throttle respond. When i make to a full stop and put the bike in neutral the engine was still making the same noise. The check engine light came out. I did a full cycle and and off the bike and the bike went to normal again. 3. Rear speakers blow after long distance riding at high volume. This happen twice already. Issue of #2 upload fault code shown by my gs-911 there were more fault codes but i dont know how to upload more then one.
