    Watch out for the oil cooler release trick!

    If the engine isn't fully warmed, some oil can stay trapped up in the cooler and make it look low. Make sure motor is thorougly warmed and wait time per manual to check for oil to settle. I...
  2. Next track day is Sept 23

    Had one this Monday but due to overseas business trip and jet lag from same, I skipped it :( You need 110% at the track and 150% for an RR, and I didn't want to chance fatigue/tiredness slowing me...

    2010 R1200GSA Oil usage

    Mine has app. 12K on it and still uses a bit but it has slowed. Anyway a GS/GSA totally, completely, and absolutely "out-cool factors" a super Tenere' :nyah

  4. Dtc

    Nope: didn't buck at all, just gently let the wheel skip app 1/8" or so from the ground and worked as advertised, IMO. You could feel it but it wasn't a showstopper. My GF couldn't see it from...
  5. First track day with RR out of Dealer Mode...

    Well, I worked up to it and eventually went WOT on the front straight of Putnam Park Sunday. Can you say: "where's the TP?" :brad After a whole day, was still not used to the amount of acceleration...
  6. Hornig Rear Passenger Peg Replacement Tie-Downs

    Welll....after several hundred miles on the trailer to last track day, the sharp edges on the interior did cut into the tie-down straps a bit. I'll be having a local machinist friend put a 1/8" or...

    That's a tough one, and hard to say for certain. With 3K on them I would probably replace just for the insurance factor (don't want to fail tech inspection). Pilots are a reasonably priced tire, too....
  8. Some Aftermarket Parts Reviews on my 2012...

    1.) R&G "No Cut" Frame Sliders for S1000RR - got a set of these and they performed as advertised, have a nice aerodynamic teardrop look, and no issues.

    2.) Hornig Mirror Caps for trackday prep -...
  9. A Neat BMW Limited Edition...

    But if the HP2 was any indicator, I'll bet it comes in at 25K or so.

  11. 800/1200gs

    Everyone's gonna say it - the 800GS is better offroad due to weight/size/maneuverability but the 1200GS/GSA will truly eat some highway. Got a 542 mile day off mine last year with seat pain being the...

    Sadly, no rally for me this year - slight medical problem with kidney stones make the ride to Sedalia not doable. It's minor and will be done soon but having one move on a ride would be very...
