    Signs of spring

    80 degrees on Sunday. 70 to 75 on Monday. Raining and in the 60's yesterday.
    Woke up to snow on the ground this morning and it is sticking. Too depressing to shoot a picture.

    Bergen BMW

    A Harley friend on mine walked into the Bergen HD dealership with the intention of buying a new helmet. Walked out with an almost brand new (2013 with 5000 miles) r1200rt. Got a great deal and the HD...

    BMW R-bikes on unimproved roads

    I was just doing a head-north-and-get-yourself-lost ride up into CT. yesterday on my Ural. At any particular moment if I saw an interesting road I'd stop, turnaround and take it. Ended up finding...
  4. How Did He Get Up There In The First Place???

    I doubted it was real but towards the end when there is less snow you can see the smallest and narrowest of what could be a trail/flat spot that the snow covers earlier. Still... it's crazy.

    Won't run on Sidestand, 1999 R1100RT

    Just wanted to make sure I wasn't losing my marbles. I went into the garage and started the bike. This on the center stand.

    With engine running I pushed it outside, obviously now not on the...

    That's interesting because on my '96 yes, side stand down does kill the engine but only if it is shifted into gear. In neutral it runs. If that is wrong I never knew it. I'll take a look at my owners...

    Won't run on Sidestand, 1999 R1100RT

    Ahh, I may have started that derailment when I mentioned the apparent lighting-rod words "warm up" (which is about 2 minutes for me putting my helmet and gloves on). Apologize for that and hope you...

    Won't run on Sidestand, 1999 R1100RT

    It's too bad you don't know if it did that before you guys worked on it. I have a 1996 r1100rt. In gear (any gear) it will not run with the bike on the side stand. As mentioned this is a...

    That bike in Hartford looks to be an excellent deal. If it is a recent picture.

    buying a 1996 R11R

    You mention the heated garage but not if it actually runs right now. If it does it would be like resurrecting a bike from a long Winters sleep. Maybe many Winters in your case. But if it runs and...

    I have it on my 2013 Jeep Wrangler. Can't stand it but there wasn't an option to exclude it. Getting used to it.

    Welcome. Yes, this is the longest winter. Hope you are getting a couple days of warm-up as we are downstate. Then back to the cold again.

  21. Shift and Hill Assist Options on 2014 1200 RT

    Shifting is so easy... maybe easier than any motorcycle I've owned on my old 1996 r1100rt that it's hard for me to believe there would be a need for something called Shift Assist.

    I admit I've not...

    No riding anything parked in the garage other than a tractor with the 44 inch snowblower that is getting quite a workout so far.

    High mileage RTP

    I like that bringing $1500.00 idea (with maybe another hundred in $20's in your pocket too). If the bike is unadvertised and he's just selling it at a garage sale you have nothing to lose if it runs...
