    I was on my F800GS commuting to work for a night shift and was stopped in a line of traffic waiting for a light. From the car beside me, a couple young guys are leaning out the windows and praising...

    That assumes they have the capability to use modern technology. More likely boasting over beers in some dingy bar.

    The mounting bracket for the BMW navigator should be available separately and mounts in the center of the bars replacing the plastic cover for the adjusting bolts. I looked at getting one for my GT,...

    On my K1200GT, I find the comfort setting too soft most of the time. I typically use the Normal setting. I have just done some ergonomic modifications to it; I installed Wunderlich Bar risers and...

    Scooter Canonball Run: Hyder-New Orleans

    So yesterday on my way home from a nice overnighter trip out into the West Kootenay region of BC, I was headed up highway 95 from Kimberly to Radium and met a scooter heading south. Nothing too...

    I decided against the Klim Goretex suits because I don't want to swelter inside it when riding off road. Yes they have venting, but that only works if you have good airflow, which I often do not...

    Last week I visited my local dealer to see what I could find in BMW suits. I wanted to replace my StreetGuard 2 suit with the new version, and needed to replace my Revit suit with the new Rallye...

    I'd follow Paul's advice. Not only far easier, it's a perfect opportunity to inspect the pivot bearings as well as the driveshaft and splines.

    Nope, I rode a demo bike on the weekend and it had the low seat on it when I got there and they switched it for the high seat for me. It was just the front portion that was different.

    I definitely tried the Dynamic mode on the RT I rode in the morning, you should have given it a go. There was a distinct difference in the engine response and sound. I was pretty impressed with the...

    Yesterday I had my opportunity to try out the new RT. Gotta say I'm left with a serious dilemma. I was very impressed with the RT, good manners with low speed handling and stable at speed. We didn't...

    I'm riding the RT in the morning. We'll see if I need to talk to my banker afterwards. ;-) (not really, she has no illusion of control over my spending habits).

    That's how I'd treat it if I bought it new, so no big deal really. It has full warranty and likely has had a full round of servicing. I'll be giving a new RT a good hard ride next weekend on a demo...

    The later K1200GTs and the K1300GTs do not have the servo brakes and are very straight forward to do a fluid flush on. There's nothing really different about it than any other ABS equipped bike. The...

    Just the RT, nothing else that is on the radar currently. The GS is still tons of fun and too farkled up to consider replacing it.

    That's why I just haven't connected with my K1200GT. It's a great bike, but lacks soul. I really want the new RT and have a test ride lined up mid May on the demo day at the dealer. We'll see if it...

    Congrats Ken, glad to hear you're starting the big vacation. Less than six years to go for me to retirement, so I'll have to get by with the little vacations.

    I believe all years of K1200GTs had the fuel strip, I know my 08 does. The K13 was the change to the float sensor. Mine gave me trouble last fall, but I tried the BBQ lighter fix on it and so far its...

    Mine has a lot of play too, always has. It's just how they are. The switch recall issue is with the 13 and newer bikes which have a different switch design.
