    Hey, I've had my share of mechanical problems. Are you saying gremlin bells (only, of course, if they are a present) cure mechanical problems? Must have a friend buy me one, or is asking for one...

    I think we are all presuming that the little windscreen with the adjustable deflector was unchanged from the earliest K100RS models through the later K1100RS models. (I had an '87 K75 with the...

    Same thing happened to me just now. Gave my user name, password, clicked the "remember me" box and I couldn't log in. Did it again without the "remember me" and I was in.

    I hope the OP's other two bikes "already in the shop" means they are "in the garage" and ready to ride. If you have three different bikes that all need repairs, sounds to me like you are...

    I'm not sure when reliability of BMW's started getting worse, but from what I read, it certainly hasn't started getting better. The newer BMW bikes have some great features and are, I'm sure, a...

    Frankly, I'm not too fond of running shopping errands on the bike. I'm one of those ATGATT nuts and just hate removing gloves, then helmet, then earplugs at every stop, only to re-install the above...

    Good point. I knew a couple who took long trips on a 1100GS and 1150GS with stock saddles. So they DO fit some butts. But, if you are uncomfortable after an hour, YOUR butt doesn't fit the stock...

    I completely agree with the last poster on one point - no matter how good your helmet is, you MUST use earplugs to protect your hearing. You will also enjoy a more serene and pleasurable ride.

    Is it my bad memory, or were there some more recent years where Corbin offered bad seats, bad service, or both? I'm reminded of the Rick Mayer...

    You have to try them

    A number of years ago I bought a used K75 that came with a Corbin "gunfighter" (single) saddle. My wife asked "where will I sit?" Good question. So I called the guy who sold me the bike and he put...

    I seem to remember my '87 K75 would backfire pretty regularly if I PARTIALLY rolled off the throttle, but not if I closed it. Also remember reading "yeah, they do that." Perhaps this post will jog...
