    My advice is to wait until the R model comes out. The RT bags work on them and they are somewhat simpler and easier to work on. I do understand how you feel though. BMW does want to appeal to a...

    You should work through a similar thread on the BMWLT forum. I think people got what they paid in a trade, but I could be wrong. There was more than one that traded for another BMW. There's a poll...

    Generally speaking, people attack the messenger when they don't like what he or she has to say, which in this case goes against some people's bike religion. Call it apostasy if you will. It's the...

    It might also have to do with the vendors they use too. In the last 10-15 years we see a more global approach to vendors by manufacturers and even the vendors have vendors from who knows where. I bet...

    It's not far. Waukee is on the west side of Clive, then there is Urbandale and Johnston the east and northeast. I used to work in Johnston and it was a 14 mile ride.

    IIRC, the octane was 108 in Iowa. Still pretty high. Even MOM for my burb says it makes more HP and torque with E85, but the mileage is horrible and not cost competitive with regular fuel.

    I have a flex fuel suburban. I've used E85 and it's like pouring it on the ground. It does run better though as the engine has a different tune for E85 (says so in the manual).

    I wish I could. The fuel quality in this state isn't good.

    Again, not me. One, I don't own a 1600. It's beyond my pay grade. Two, I doubt you'd ever find me on a track. :thumb That said, I don't like tar snakes either.
