    I was saddened when I heard the news of his passing. As was stated initially, James Garner was a very talented and versatile actor. I don't believe he ever received the accolades he deserved for his...

    Wow. That was beautiful. What a glowing tribute to BMW. Almost brought a tear to my eye. I raise my glass of Cool-Aid in a toast to you sir. :laugh

    I agree about whether the key fob is a really a needed accessory, but I 'll bet it will come as a part of an option package, rather than a stand alone option.

    Since you did say it has been awhile since you had a boxer engine BMW, I think you may have forgotten how they sound. My 06RT has noticeable valve noises, not so much right after a valve adjustment,...

    So, do I understand correctly, the dealer sold you a 2014 RT AFTER the stop riding notice? I thought the do not ride order applied to ALL RT'S because they weren't certain about the safety in any of...

    WHAT these owners are "entitled" to is a motorcycle that they can ride. After all I don't believe any of them had a bike "given" to them by BMW. I am pretty sure that all of the owners of the 2014...

    Great trip and report. :thumb

    I love riding the roads in Arkansas. One of my favorite states to ride. I just wish it was a lot closer to me.

    To all the unfortunate purchasers of the 2014 RT, you have my sympathy. To have something like this happen has to be frustrating. I have bought four bikes new over the years and only one, the Ducati...

    If the owner lives in a state with a lemon law for bikes and a loaner can't be provided or the owner doesn't want to accept a loaner, could BMW be forced to buy it back since there will apparently be...

    That is too funny. Bmw may not have a rear shock on the 2014 R12RT right now that's safe, but they do have a genius, so I am sure there will be a fix for this soon.:laugh

    You will need to find a tank bag that is very slim in profile due to the pullback and narrowness of the bars. The bars will hit a wide tank bag when you need to make sharp left or right low speed...

    I believe BMW has switched their priorities over the last decade or so from quality, to being innovators of new technology, sometimes just for the sake of doing something new. A good example would be...

    I have a 2006 R1200RT and couple of years ago I bought a 1987 GL1200 SE-I. Although the wing IS heavy ( 850 lbs I believe) it is amazing how well balanced it is. Traffic lights and stop signs are...

    That's possible. After a day ride on the Ducati, the RT does seem quite a bit slower by comparison. Grabbing a handful of throttle on the ST4S will change your perspective of the world around you in...

    Interesting on your assessment of the R1100RT. That's pretty much how I feel about my 06 R1200RT. The engine at idle reminds of a tractor as well. The most uninspiring power delivery of any bike with...

    Reliability is certainly a consideration for me. I have owned 2 BMW's (a 1994 K1100LT and a 2006 R1200RT currently), both of which have had more mechanical 'issues" than all Japanese bikes I have...
