    virginia Inspection sticker on GSW?

    Hello,

    The new R1200GSW has radial mount brake calipers, so the old solution of mounting a plate on a caliper bolt won't work.

    Where have other Virginia GSW riders placed our state's nasty 4x3...

    If I recall correctly, part of the 600 mile service on my 2007 R12R was retorqueing the cylinder heads. Not done anymore either I guess, if there's no valve check?

    Pete,

    I think you are broadly correct concerning SUV's, but your estimate of "1%" might just be colored by your experience in "Bahstin."

    How well are K1600's selling?

    I was looking at my local BMW dealer's current inventory of new bikes, and I'm surprised to see 9-10 K1600GT/L bikes in stock out of an inventory of 70 BMW's. He has zero R1200R's, 2-3 R1200GS's, and...

    Nice Bike!

    Rode one yesterday at Bob's in Maryland. What a great bike! I'm not mourning the passing of the air/oil-cooled era at all. This is a great step forward for BMW.
    I want one!

    Cheers, Tom
