    Pirelli Angel GT on 2011 RT

    I've used PR3s since the OEM tires wore out. 57,000 km on the bike and I thought I'd try the Angel GTs. Only about 150 km on them and I'm convinced I made the right choice. No tendency to squirm like...

    BMW cover not so good on my 2011 R1200RT

    I purchased one of these, was told that it would fit with the top box mounted....barely does, too much of a stretch.
    Definitely not waterproof. When it rains the fabric absorbs water and stretches....

    I used Techmount Light Mounts for Tubular Bars. I can't say that I am happy with the part of the design of these mounts. After some use, the locking screw will not hold the light mount to the bar...

    Didn't go there after all

    When we were in Fortuna a few days ago, Redding, CA and the various deserts were 120 F and higher. Did the CA#1 Leggett to Ft. Bragg and CA#30 to Willits and then turned tail and went up the coast.

    Wunderlich oil screen

    +1 on the Wunderlich screen. Looks better than stock bike. Super easy to install. I caught a sparrow in mine last year at high speed: it was flattened (the bird). Far from home, far from a BMW...

  14. Michelin PR3s on '11 R1200 RT

    On my second set of these. Great traction in the twisties and very good in the rain. On my summer trip last year, I wore them "flat" due to the amount of highway riding. I'm getting 16000+ km on them.
  15. Powerlet heated gear

    With the new Powerlet long infra red tech, that would incinerate me unless it was 20 below. It's easy to burn the backs of your hands if not careful. That's not a criticism. The product info...
  16. Powerlet dual wireless controller

    This is mounted with the supplied Velcro to the fairing. It is out of most of the weather and can be adjusted by touch without changing body position. Lights are visible.

    Mackinaw Trail

    I rode this from Sault Ste Marie to St. Ignace recently. It's nice, rural, little traffic, but definitely not twisty. Very low key if you want to get off the slab, but not an outstanding ride.

    Pillion seat heater plug 2011 R1200RT

    I recently installed a Corbin Smuggler. I am contemplating adding an electrical plug for recharging phone/camera/etc. Is there any reason not to source this from the passenger seat heater connection?
