Good question. I guess it's the same way that many here question the "15,000 mile oil change," even though it's recommended by BMW.

Also, the BMW recommendation is self contradicting at times. Case in point. In talking with the BMW dealership on the maintenance of the bike during the break-in period, the technician told me the break-in period is 12,000 miles. As I questioned his number by telling him that the owner's manual says 6,000 miles, he just said "well do whatever you want, but I am telling you what is best for your bike."
