    I'm in the same boat. Really would like to see BMW and Triumph in particular, don't see any reason to drive into DC for what little the show now seems to offer. Sad state of affairs actually.

    I would think a good dealer should be able to help you. I would think all of the R cables should be pretty similar other than length but a sharp parts guy should be able to tell you right away.

    I agree totally, if you look across the BMW range from the start, the current roadster is the logical sucessor in comparison to anything else. I would certainly never consider an RT, did not like...
