Question about BMW R 1150 R Motorcycles
You definitely need a new fuel tank cap. Your motorcycle gas tank is designed not to release gasoline into the atmosphere . But it is designed to allow air into the tank so the fuel will flow. If you have a vacuum forming in the tank your fuel tank gas cap is not venting air into the tank. Unless your gas tank cap can be taken apart and is rebuildable , you will have to buy a new one to fix the problem.

This is an article I found on gas. I have had this happen to me and if the gas goes bad in lawn mowers I'm sure the same thing will happen in cars just not as common due to cars usually don't sit around.
I would try putting a gas stabilizer in and run that tank of gas till almost empty then fill it and see if the problem is still there.
Also take a look under the hood and look at the wires and vacuum hoses animals seems to like chewing on them some times.
If none of this works repost but let us know if the battery was dead at any time and if the check engine come on while the engine is running.
