    Aside from my little Suzuki, I've been commuting since '76. I've only had 2 mishaps, both times being rear-ended. I've had plenty of close-calls, as most commuters have.

    I think lifting the F650 was out of the question, and I believe he was asking about the R1200RT, which is what I was referring to. And, no, I didn't take your comment as being "smart" - we're all...

    It's not the lifting with the shoulder that gets the bike up, rather, it's the pressing of the foot on the lever. Try it. The arm just steadies the bike on its way up.

    Talked to my dealer yesterday. BMW had them remove the shocks from the bikes on their floor - I think so the work would be "half done" and get ahead of the curve for when the new shocks come in. ...

    I wouldn't worry about a '14 model - it's just a shock. I bought a first year CLC - put 86,000 miles on it before I was rear-ended. Only issue with that one was - they had to replace the rear shock...

    Had some hot days here in Virginia before the no-ride edict came. No heat felt, though my wife felt a bit in back from the vent. This should be a plus factor in the colder months.

    The idea of extending the warranty would not be appealing to me, as I trade them in after a year and a half. I would be satisfied if they made my payment for as long as I can't ride it.
