    Pick 'em off one by one, just as you would with cars. Now, I'm not stupid. A few years ago I was riding from Dallas to Austin on a two lane highway and came up to a large and slow group of...

    I'm liking it. I've determined that what I thought was a mild buffeting on my helmet was just air on my torso having nowhere to go but up. It wasn't buffeting at all. I just needed to get used to...

    I've owned two bimmers:

    - A 1984 318i standard tranny. It was in South Africa so it was right hand drive, too. Not at all powerful, but it handled like a dream!

  8. New rear Anakee 2, and my 85,000 miles of 12GS tire history

    Last Saturday I had to replace my nearly new rear tire because I ran over a screw. :mad I rode it with a plug for a couple of weeks, then got it replaced. It was an Anakee 2, and I replaced it with...

    I installed the Aeroflow Sport on Saturday. I got a tall since I have a long torso and sit tall in the saddle. That's the size I had in my Aeroflow Touring and it was perfect.

  10. Any experience with the new Aeroflow Sport for the 12GS

    I've ridden with the regular Aeroflow (now the Aeroflow "Touring") on my '05 12GS for six years and 80,000 miles and it has been great. It got rid of the awful buffeting from the stock screen.

    Not quite. Texas statutes simply don't address it. The tickets I've seen for lanesplitting in Texas are for "unsafe driving" or some other generalized thing. It depends on the officer. I know...

    I go with five years. But it also depends on use. I ride 15,000 miles per year, half of it under the hot Texas sun and all the sweat that goes with it. I retired a Shoei X-11 last March after five...

    Question re ON Magazine

    One of my favorite parts of ON is the members' letters at the beginning of each issue. Is it my imagination, or has the letters section been dramatically reduced since around the February issue?

    I'm glad you're well. I'll only contribute some advice I got many years ago. When on a new tire, ride in the same conservative manner that you'd use on a wet surface for the first 50 to 100 miles.

    I bought a tall sized Aeroflow for my 12GS and I've been happy with it for over 70,000 miles. I know its not your bike, but there are a couple of things to consider with the Aeroflow.

    Because most pulsating brake lights stop pulsating after a few seconds. While I'm sure they're out there, I haven't seen one that remains pulsating for an entire stop.

    Agreed! I'd suggest looking at the F800R or F800GS. You did say you were "looking for agility," right? Personally, I'd love to see BMW come out with an F800RT!
