    2007 gas smell

    My 2007 R1200RT had the gas smell. It is the subject of a recall now on 50,000 BMW motorcycles.

    Mine has been fixed and no longer smells.

    Contact your BMW dealer.

    top case

    I used a 2013 top case on my '14 RT. Why? MSRP=$832. MSRP on 2014 top case = $1,600 with electric lock, and it is heavier.

    Support Vech and Bench Mark Works! Help them stay in business. Without them we would be in serious trouble keeping our old BMWs running.

    R25/3 rehabilitated by Vech.

    An interesting bike to ride. 13 HP. Minimal suspension. Lots of vibes. No speed demon -- 45-50 is pretty fast! Fabulous MPG. Cool around-town ride.
