Here is a short video showing the Australian 2020 Himalayan press launch.  Their new Himalayan models will be getting fuel injection and ABS.  Meanwhile the press gets to stay in tents and eat beans. Not exactly up to BMW press launch standards.   ;)

I really liked this video. I watched it more for the cinematics.

I enjoyed it, but they had steak, a gourmet looking cheese selection and a cappuccino machine! Looks like a great time to me.

I thought it was kind of funny that the 2020 Australian Himalayan models seemed to have the same specifications and features as the 2018 models introduced to the rest of the world a couple of years ago.  While I am sure the food was good (I was just trying to be funny with the "beans" remark), it still was quite a contrast to most other brand's press launch of a new model, where they fly journalists to 5-star hotels and wine and dine them at the best restaurants, and rent a race track or ride around a fancy and exotic area to test the latest motorcycles. 

This press review just took the journalists on a camping trip into the woods. Quite a contrast.   ;)

The same problem is occurring with my Delonghi coffee maker firmware. Can anyone help me resolve this? By the way, I am planning to get another drip feed coffee maker suggested by this source -  Nescafe Coffee Machine Price


Any thoughts?

I think you must be lost if this is your one and only posting to a motorcycle forum--that or some clickbaiter that bears very close watching by our moderators. That said, we've been pretty happy for years with our Black & Decker "Mill & Brew" with its built-in bean grinder for just about $60 at Home Depot: https://www.homedepot.com/p/BLACK-DECKER-12-Cup-Programmable-Stainless-Steel-Drip-Coffee-Maker-with-Built-In-Grinder-CM5000B/206667222

In fact, I think you should definitely buy one and have a couple of cups of coffee from it before you sleepily post more weird irrelevant nonsense clogging up random internet forums.
