  1. Input splines...

    It happened on my 2001 R1100RT at 54,829 as well and on an identical bike owned by another member of the San Diego BMW club, although I don't know the mileage.

    I've ridden mine a bit under 40K...

    I don't think I'll buy another pair of the Bridgestones

    When I bought the '01 1100RT in May 2 years ago it had a pair of Avon Storm 2 Ultras on it that were a bit more than half worn out. I got another 4200 miles out of them before I replaced them.

  3. Rear brake pads for '01 1100 RT?

    The rear brake pads are nearly worn out on the RT. I let the local independent BMW wrench replace the last set with BMW OEM parts, but thought I might do it myself this time.

    When I did a search...

    Like several others here my first bike was a Honda CB360. It had about 4400 miles on it when I bought it and I put 11,000 on it in just less than 2 years. It was a good bike to learn on, but there...

    It's all about the ergonomics

    Back in 1978 or so my wife and I took a day trip from Thornton, Colorado (north side of Denver) to Pueblo, CO on my '77 RD400 Yamaha with a Vetter Windjammer fairing. It's about a 250 mile round...
  6. K1200RS comfort

    I owned a K1200RS for a few months and found that the seat was good for about 375 miles in a day before I had had enough.

    I ordered a Sargent seat for it, but before I put the seat on the shop...

    Maintenance cost...

    I've had an '01 R 1100 RT for just over a year and put 21,000+ miles on it. It had 46K on it when I bought it.

    I've had a couple of fairly significant expenses - a Hall Effect sensor for about...

    FJR compared to an RT?

    I test rode an FJR at the Long Beach motorcycle show in December.

    Great engine performance and shifts smoothly, but the seat to pegs relationship bends my knees more than my '01 1100RT. The bars...

    I think maybe someone missed that the $1100 was parts only. The labor was another $1200. From what a couple others have posted that seems like it's in the ball park. If you have the resources to take...
  10. Center stand for me almost all the time.

    All of the five motorcycles I've owned have had center stands and I've parked them on the center stand almost always, unless there was enough slope to the ground to make that unwise. I've never had...
  11. Input shaft repair cost - R1100RT

    I just had this done to my 2001 R1100RT.

    $1110.72 for parts including both rear main seals, new clutch, various small parts and a used input shaft for half the price of a new one. The mechanic...

    I spent several hours going over the tire poll and finally settled on a set of the PR3's for my '01 R1100RT. I've put just over 1000 miles on them and they seem to handle better than the Avon Storms...

    I already have the bluetooth intercoms that work very well.

    It's a bit of a moot point, since I just bought my '01 R1100RT, there won't be a new K1600 in my future any time soon, but it's just...

    If it's designed to fit exclusively into the Schuberth helmet, I wonder if it's possible to fit it into other helmets. I don't believe a modular helmet can provide the protection of a 1 piece full...

    Sargent seat on an '01 R1100RT

    My '01 RT had a Sargent seat when I bought it, so I don't have any experience with the stock seat.

    I've done a 710 mile day on the Sargent and that was before I put the Alaska Leather pad on from...

    I took an F800ST for a test ride a couple weeks ago. It didn't take me long to find out that my wrists wouldn't take the leaned forward riding position. I can't imagine doing 4 0r 5 hundred miles in...

    How about an F800RT?

    I test rode an '08 F800ST a couple of weeks ago. I thought the engine performance was very nice, but the seating position is just too sporty for these old bones.

    After thinking about it for a few...

    I bought an '01 R1100RT the end of May that came with Avon Storm tires. So far, I've been quite happy with the way the tires handle.

    Kate,

    Thanks for the reply. I'm jealous about the 1700 mile trip. You must be nearing the 3K mark.

    It's encouraging that the computer seems to be very accurate as far as gas consumed.

    Kate,

    In the thread on gas mileage you have said the GT has averaged about 45 mpg for the 1000 miles you have ridden.

    Is that using the computer reported figures, or is that actual gallons...
