    I bought a Nav V to replace a Garmin Montana I was using on my '06 RT. I think it's a great GPS (the Nav V is my fourth GPS, third for on-bike use). I bought the version with the four-button...

    Interesting. My bike's ('06 RT) final drive has only ever had SAF-XO in it following a FD fluid change, save for the one time I had it changed on the road in Los Angeles. Although my bike has been...

    My recall letter (for my '06 RT) arrived at my Canadian address today. I now live in the U.S. Guess I'd better ask my local dealer here (Bob's BMW) whether my bike's info etc. has somehow migrated...

    I planned on riding US-441 towards the end of June, from south to north through the park. I noticed the Park's website says that they expect the road to re-open "by May". I'm just wondering what...

    I'd say most of the criticism posted here about Consumer Reports is way off base. CR was not evaluating the performance, or features, of any bike, or stating their preferences after road tests. ...

    [QUOTE=oldspice;867342]I run one of the new Givi 52L Trekker cases. Plenty big and plenty secure.

    Now that's a lot nicer looking (in my opinion, of course) than any of the other third-party top...

    I've been across-continent quite a few times in the last decade and I simply lock the forks and for overnight stops I add a cover. Liker many have said, just use common sense -- and gut instincts --...

    I rode to Las Vegas last summer (yes, it was hot!) and got a set of tires and an oil & filter change at BMW of Las Vegas. In that relatively short span of time, it certainly seemed to be a well-run,...

    Seems pretty straightforward to me, use the oil that BMW recommends in your bike's owner's manual (and when I say BMW, I mean BMW Motorrad, not your local dealer). Unless I misread one of your...

    Just checked the owner's manual online for the current R12RT. The recommended rear tire, cold inflation pressure, for two-up riding is 2.9 bar, i.e., 42 PSI.

    True re filters, and many other parts in our bikes, but BMW maintains them in its global inventory, with BMW part numbers etc. This is not the case with oil. Here, I'm talking BMW Motorrad Germany,...
