    I do quite a bit of both, and I will say this: there's nothing like the experience of a well-struck golf ball.

    After I crashed my '07 RT I started looking for a new R. I had an 1150R, liked it a lot, and sold it for reasons I still don't understand. Anyway, after pricing out a new R with windscreen, bags,...

    The only Corbin seat I (briefly) owned looked like it could have been made in a Russian tractor factory. And it was heavy. I refused to put it on my GS.

    Dang. I didn't think about the front being 19". Oh well. I guess if I want RT wheels, I should buy an RT.

    Good question. I'm thinking of a 1200 GS for the tall-guy ergos and would have no intention of taking it offroad. I'd like to have the larger, 120/180 size street rubber that my RT had. Has anyone...

    Sorry; $499.32 got me in a foul mood. On the other hand, I didn't appreciate getting needled because I forgot to ask for the old parts. There's a lot going on in my little world right now.

    I've got more important things on my mind than making sure you derive some kind of free benefit from my bike problem.

    The $150 per sensor is the BMW thing. Even for Bring My Wallet, that's over the top. I replaced all four in my car (Toyota, not BMW) when I got new tires and the cost was inconsequential.
