    Two years in Saudi Arabia working for ARAMCO (OPEC) had a big influence on my thinking about mpg's: I lived on top of the world's largest oilfield, the Ghawar, and also saw where the money for oil...

    I appreciate your comments. I am seriously considering updating from an '03 RT to a '15 R1200GS. With my long, 36" inseam legs, I don't believe I'd fit on a Goldwing. I also relate to BMW's old...

    Nice bike, Rich. I am very interested in a new GS. I'd get the white one, like yours. I'm 6'4" and with a 36" inseam, so I am at the far right of the bell curve for inseam, and that new GS would...

    Sticky: Here's another safety video

    This one isn't bad, but the lack of attention to conspicuity (black helmets, black jackets) is troubling, especially in a safety video. Don't make yourself harder to see.

    It is normal. It's just a symptom of a wet clutch. As the oil warms up it should get less clunky. I test-rode a new R1200GS and noticed the clunk into first gear.

    The day I rode the Dragon, the speed limit was all of 35 mph and the road was patrolled heavily by two state troopers. Who cares what the shortest elapsed time is?
