    I think I'm going to go with the K60 - looks like the perfect compromise between dirt and tarmac.

    Had a return visit to Mark and Dana at VMW to finish the electrical repair yesterday. Mark completed the job under budget and two hours ahead of time, so I'm pleased thus far.

    I'd be much happier...

    I have ESA on my 2012 GSA, and I'd get it again if I were configuring a new bike - particularly since the new GSW ESA incorporates dynamic suspension adjustment.

    Sometimes I commute on my GSA, and...
  4. 2012 GSA - time for 1st set of replacement tires - suggestions?

    I've worn down the first pair of Tourances after 10,500 miles. I'm now in the market for a set of replacement tires.

    In a perfect world, I'd have unlimited income, and thus the ability to...

    Check your ABS sensor ring for damage.

    The prior owner of my 2002 RTP sold the bike to me because he couldn't stand the "jerky/grabby" brakes. After a careful inspection of the braking system,...
  6. Vallantine Motor Works - Seattle, WA

    I've been taking my bikes to Mick Vallantine at Vallantine Motor Works since acquiring my first BMW in 2006. Mick did a great job at a fair price of maintaining my K75S, then my RTP, and now my RTP...

  8. "Worn throttlebodies" - 2002 R1150RTP

    Yesterday I took my 2002 R1150RTP in for her 84,000 mile service.

    When I picked up the bike, the mechanic filling in for my regular mechanic provided me with a list of items soon needing...
  9. 2002 1150 RTP driving/fog light recommendations

    I have a 2002 R1150RTP, with PIAA 1100x driving lights mounted on the front crash bars. They have done a great job over the past 60,000 miles, however they've recently quit working, and I'm thinking...

    Agree with moving to Hexheads, but this thread is about tire recommendations, not trip planning.

    This Seattle-area 2012 GSA owner suggests the Tourances for all those highway miles. 8000 miles should come pretty close to using up the tires. You'd need a couple of sets of knobbies to go 8000...

    As a follow-up, I've put a couple hundred issue-free miles on the bike - including a bunch of riding off-road, through rain, mud and even some snow, and the issue hasn't reappeared. Perhaps it was...

    RT vs. GT instead of RT vs. GTL

    I had a GTL for a day as a service loaner. Put 200 miles on it just because I could. I couldn't stand how twitchy the bike was when passing large vehicles at highway speed. The turbulence from...

    My independent BMW mechanic's first guess was the 'fuel pressure regulator'. Whatever it is, the dealer and BMW can sort it out. I like warranty work! :dance

    There aren't enough floating gas stations in the harbor between Stanley Park and the cruise terminal for it to be Vancouver, B.C.. :)

  18. 2012 GSA intermittent stalling

    Riding home from work yesterday on the freeway at 70 mph, my 2012 R1200GSA with 7800 miles (and three weeks after a service) abruptly stalled, exactly as if I was out of gas. The tank is 3/4 full,...

    The BeemerBoneyard part isn't used - it's a brand-new OEM part.

    The stealership still gets plenty of money from me - my wrench buys his parts and supplies from them, and I buy my own parts and...

    If I have to get off my bike to pump the gas, I'm riding on to the next gas station. That's one reason while I'll never own a bike with an underseat gas tank!

    It is not a Washington State law or...

    Thought I'd give you guys an update...

    I ordered the part through beemerboneyard.com - $50 cheaper than through the stealership. Part arrived today. Bike also needs a new rear tire, so it's a...

    You can also find paint numbers on parts fiches like the one on the MAX BMW website. You might think it's easy on cop bikes, with either black and white or only white paint colors, but I think there...

    Thanks for the reply, Don! Klaus set up the Hyper-Pro shocks on my RTP, so I know him and his reputation well. I had heard somewhere that the Kisan products weren't proving to be especially...

    I must have a Teutonic ass, because I find the stock seat very comfortable - even when on the bike for 500+ mile days.
  25. Headlight modulator and turn signal running lights for CANbus bikes? 2013 R1200GSA

    I have a 2002 RTP with the Kisan headlight modulator and the Kisan SignalMinder, giving me the flashing headlight and always-on running lights from my front and rear turn signals. I'm unable to find...
