    Absolutely correct with that last sentiment...I'm afraid to do any test riding at the moment for that reason. Your 2009 R1200GS is what I think I want, but much like the typical urban/suburban jeep...

    I definitely want to take a good look at some R-series bikes if and when I replace the K bike. I think they're more my style. The K bike just happened to land in my lap.

    Thanks Paul. After the input here, I think I'll see what I can do to reduce the 'buzz' further. I asked about the heat problem in a post at the beginning of the summer, and much like the 'buzz'...

    Thanks much for the input. I'm pretty certain the bike is missing the seals. And I'm pretty sure your previous suggestion would greatly help with the vibration. The bike was is in less than ideal...

    Yep, dollars spent and it reduced the vibration somewhat from unbearable to bearable for a short while. But I will revisit the next time I see my mechanic. One problem I have is that when I...

    Most of my miles are on the highway. Ultimately I want something that I would be relatively comfortable on all day on the highways and byways (besides the buzz, the heat of the K certainly reduces...

    Not-so-good BMWs?

    I'm starting to daydream/think about getting a different (used) bike from my current 1987 K100. It has been a nice introduction to BMW bikes for me, and fine for my daily commute, but far too much...

    87 K100RS Running Hot

    My first few rides in the warm weather on my 'new' bike and it sure does run hot. I know K100s generally do run hot, but mine was close to redlining on the temperature gauge the last 2 days when I...

    I've been tracking BMWs in the NE on Ebay for the last few months. This might be the norm, but it seems like most bids end without the reserve price being met. Maybe it's just the time of year, but...
