    Another vote for Federal.
    I shipped my bike to CA from FL and it was about $500 (2 years ago).
    My brother and I rode coast to coast and he shipped his back home to CA.

    Wow, that brake line pic really scares me! How can BMW think that won't be dangerous?

    I have an 07 as well and also come from the Harley camp. The BMW is just geared that way and you'll get used to it. Higher rpms at takeoff are just part of the charm!

    Or, does the clock reset after so many years? I went down once in college over 20 years ago.
    I'd like to think I've gotten mine out of the way, but I still ride like it could happen again anytime!

    Great story, but did anyone else notice the part about 120MPH as a passenger?
    Gearing up is great, but riding stupid is asking for it.
    Kinda like getting in the car with a drunk driver and wearing...

    It's worth what someone is willing to pay for it. If you think it's worth a certain number and don't need to sell, just wait. If you really want to sell now, you might need to make it more attractive...

    But is it low? It seems that the low saddles all give up a bit of cushion for seat height.
    Who has A low saddle they swear by?

    OK, after riding to and from the rally on the Corbin. I've come to the conclusion that it will NEVER be a good saddle for me. There is nothing to break in! The foam never shaped to fit.
    I even tried...

    Good point abou the low saddles being uncomfortable all around.
    I love my RT, but hate to think that I won't be able to make it comfy for my 29" inseam!

    I did 600mi on the Corbin today and it was miserable! Like riding a picnic bench! I'm checking out saddles as soon as I get to the rally. The Corbin will be for sale ASAP!

    So it looks like the majority favors going with the Corbin for this trip. That's how I was leaning.

    I know I didn't give a third option for the poll, but buying a new saddle for this trip is out of the question. I'm mainly trying to decide which of the saddles I...

    I picked up a Corbin low for my RT and have been pretty disappointed thus far. It's REALLY hard and while I've heard it can take a lot of miles to break in, I don't think I can use it long enough to...

    Thanks gang,

    I should have known the computer would drain the battery. My Ducati did the same thing.
    I'll pull the batt and have it tested. Hopefully I can recover it!

    Dead battery... Very odd

    My 2007 1200RT has been in the garage for about two weeks untouched while I was on vacation.
    Was going to ride to work yesterday and the bike was dead as a rock. I didn't have a battery tender or...

    You are better off with a good set of in-ear monitors or custom ear buds.
    I have Livewires and they are great quality with good sound.

    The brackets come right out with a few torx bolts. The height adjuster pops out w/no tools.
