    My 2006 1200RT came with Bridgestones and I have gotten used to them, but at first they did not seem to handle very well on pavement with vertical grooves. I am more a fan of the Metzeler Z6s,...

    Hi, folks:

    Thanks, guys! No worries, John - the weather reports I checked also didn't predict the storm. I guess they haven't perfected the art quite yet!

    Well, I rode all the way up from LA County to about 40 miles south of my destination (Zephyr Cove, Nevada, on Lake Tahoe) but couldn't get over the pass on Highway 88 yesterday. The earlier weather...

    Hi, folks:

    I am planning a ~1000-mile solo ride to Lake Tahoe and back next week (from the Los Angeles area, about 500 miles each way). Does anyone who knows that area think there might be ice up...

    R1200RT and engine heat

    Do any R1200RT owners think the seat can get pretty warm when the engine has been running for a while? Either my bike's engine produces a fair amount of heat that transmits up through the seat, or...

    This particular thread started as a straightforward question about how best to split lanes, for those who choose to and are able to. I suggest we focus the discussion on that question.

    I understand those who have never (or rarely) split lanes feeling it's nuts. I used to feel exactly that way myself before I started filtering. ...

    Protecting GPS screen

    Hi, folks:

    I had a Garmin 2610 GPS on my last bike and the screen peeled off after about two years of regular use. I suspect it happened because I commute to work every day and the bike sits...

    Thanks, SFDoc!

    BTW, I meant to say I used to own an 1150R before, not an 1150RT. Did try my husband's 1150RT once, though, and it is a sweet ride too.
