    In my opinion ... Rick Mayer seems to have more consistently happy customers as compared to Bill (Rocky) Mayer saddles. I have ridden on both, and the comfort and quality seemed higher on the Rick...

    Yes, the motor has to be cold. But if you bring the bike in at 9 AM, after lunch, the motor would be plenty cold.

    Nice looking seat. Had the Airhawk not worked for me, I was seriously considering Russell. Seats are a challenging thing... What one rider hates, another loves.

    I went with Bill Mayer Saddles, via a ride in. Seat was uncomfortable on my test ride. Told the builder and Rocky (Bill) the same, and they said it was because it wasn't broken in. They covered it,...

    I'm not so sure that BMW is actually suggesting to move to synthetic oil at the 600 mile service. For the police bikes, yes, but for civilian bikes, I'm not too sure that a change was intended. I...

    I can't give you insight on the comfort seat, but I can about the Airhawk. A common problem with the Airhawk is over inflation. It should be inflated so you're only about a half inch off the seat....

    I guess it depends on your budget. If the budget allows, a 2010 is the first year that I'd consider. You'd get all the improvements that have occurred since the 1200RT was introduced in 2005, plus...

    No. The oil level warning (on or off) stays "latched" in its last position until the next stop when it's re-evaluated. In other words, if it comes on when you stop at a traffic light and stays on...

    You're checking the oil fine.



    Remember, the low oil quantity warning will only appear when the bike is stopped, so that part sounds fine. As for it not extinguishing once it appears, it too...

    I have decided that for now, I am going to keep the 2005 R1200RT that I have. I figure that to buy a 2008+ RT, I am more than likely talking the cost of my 2005 + $5,000-6,000. Even if some of the...

    Due to the shape of the fuel tank on the ST, the gauge will indicate full until it's nearly half empty. In other words, a tank indicating full means you're somewhere between full and just under 2...
