    I saw the scouts in an add about a year ago and was very impressed. I think I'll go with them after I wear the front out.

    Aren't TKC80's the stock Adventure tires? I'm no knee dragger either, but I can't afford a pair of 1500 mile tires either. Nor do I want to replay the mid 80's when I layed out my GPZ500 and spent a...

    I'm thinking of putting some dual sport tires on my GS. I have 20 acres of land that I would love to take bike on, but the factory tires just don't cut it. I avoid lots of fun with the bike as I...

    I filled the bike up Friday in the middle of all that heat and now this morning it thinks it's bone dry. It blinked "Fuel" and the yellow triangle all the way to the gas station where it took a pint...

    R1100RT air screw location?

    Hi,

    I think it's time to deal with the dreaded dirty air screws on the TB's. I've been on the GS for a while and decided to get out the RT but now it's just barely idling. It's always been too low...

    Poor mileage on '09 GS

    I'm sort of taking a poll and asking for input on my '09 1200GS. I'm just short of my 6k service, and I'm only getting 40mpg freeway and about 35mpg around town. I can stretch it if I lug it, but...

    I ended up with a pair of hex head metric bolts. I now have two 13mm nuts, one 13mm bolt and one 10mm bolt. I may still weld a 13mm nut to the one 10mm bolt head. But for now all I need is my socket...

    Exactly! And the tool kit is non-existant on this bike. I can almost disassemble my RT with the kit it came with.

    I do have a pretty good selection of tools, usually more than one set, but I have never seen a torx socket or box end wrench. I have a nice set of torx bits, you almost have to these days. I ended up...

    Hi All,

    I guess I just need to vent. I love my new '09 GS, but the discoveries of the first oil change just about sent me over the edge. I just don't understand why they (BMW) used three different...

    I think it was about $600, but it could have been less with the club discount. It was well worth it. I don't like any of the aftermarket shields, too plain. The GSA is just the right height for me.

    Hi all,

    I thought I would share my windshield change on my GS. My local dealer told me all I needed was the new windscreen, support bar, and the two little screws to make the change from GS to...

    I hate the little stock footpegs on my GS. I've searched around but all I've seen are the pivoting type. Has anyone bought bigger pegs? And where?
