    Touratech Kahedo. It was the only seat I could find that didn't lower the seat height. It's very firm, which is what my butt likes.

    You've got to ride a GS.

    I can tell you that I hated my RT so much that I traded it for a GS/A after 4 months. The GS/A is, for me, a better long-distance tourer and a better bike for carving up...

    Every butt is different. I can last about an hour on beads. I hated the Airhawk so much I sent it back for a refund.

    That's nonsense. I've logged over a hundred thousand miles on air cooled Harleys and none of them have used oil like the Adventure.

    PR3 Trail up front, standard PR3 out back. Smooth, quiet ride, excellent performance in fast corners and in the rain. I'll probably get close to 10,000 miles out of the front, I doubt the rear will...

    There's only so much the suspension can do. You might try increasing the preload to give you a little more travel, but a terrible road is a terrible road.

    Not when it's below the circle and the oil light's on it's not. This is directly from the manual.


    Engine's clean, but that was a good thought. I've got a trip out west coming up, the bike will...

    Oil's at the bottom of the sight glass with the "oil check" showing in the display. Your guidance doesn't match what the manual states. I check it per the manual.

    It's BS that a $20,000+ bike...

    That's great. Doesn't change the fact that it's ridiculous that a modern motorcycle in 2013 uses this much oil.

    15,000 miles on my '12 GS/A, and I'm still using nearly a quart every thousand miles. Bike was broken in properly. I have added more oil to my BMW in 15,000 miles and 9 months than I've added to my...

    I'm 6'2" with a 34" inseam. I use a tall seat (just a bit taller than stock), stock windshield 1 position from the top, and a Touratech spoiler. It's not as quiet as my RT was with the ZTechnik...

    I run an IICE Air, which is similar to a BP. It smooths things out a bit at part-throttle, but really makes the bike punchier when you're beating on it. I like it, and for $75 it was a bargain.

    People make a bigger deal about salt than I think they should. Spray the bike off with Salt-Away on a warm (above freezing) day and you're fine.

    I've seen a day of riding when it never got above the mid-20s. Gerbing's stuff head-to-toe, and it was fine.

    I check my tire pressure before every ride and adjust accordingly. Cold pressure is cold pressure, no matter what the ambient air is.

    I haven't owned a BMW through the winter yet, but I've done it for years on my UJMs and Harleys. Assuming your gear is up to it, the biggest thing you need to think about is warmup for the bike. ...

    Same cruddy switchgear as the RT, don't care for the looks, more electronic goo-gaws. On the plus side, TBW and a wet clutch.
