My front brake hose patch to get home a couple of days ago (removed off the bike once I got home). Electrical tape and a tie wrap. Lots of engine braking, and rear brake use to get the last 30 miles home. I figured I had a use or two of the front brake in an emergency.
Two new front hoses on order from BMW of Jacksonville. I called today, and they said the parts were on the way from BMW warehouse.
Is there a warehouse in the US, or are they coming from the Mother-ship in Germany?

Only BMW of Jacksonville can clear up that ambiguity for you.

I wept because I had no radials until I met a man who had no splines.

I have had the same issue with brake lines and have found that my local hose / coupling shop can make them for me in about 20 minutes wait time and at a cost of about $25....

Changed the brakelines as the old ones were from '92. The new are reinforced from Motobins.
Cleaned out the rear caliber since the rear brake was dragging a bit and the inner brakepad was worn to about 1 mm. Changed pads.
Has my joy trying to get the air bubbles out of the ABS and the brakelines.
Cleaned out the FD splines and gave them new Guard Dog Moly.
Changed oil and filter.
Wash and polish and i'm ready for this years 10kkm
