    Adding running lights & Hyperlites?

    I've been searching for threads on adding auxiliary lights to an F650GS (mine is 2010), and would be grateful for any leads. Two dealers have told me that they have not yet added either running...

    Loaner bike for July weekend

    I hope this kind of request isn't inappropriate for the forum. I'm planning a trip to Decorah, Iowa for the weekend of 12-15 July, and would like to ride Iowa two-lane from an area airport. My first...

    BMW battery charger only?

    My 2010 F650 GS turned over, but wouldn't start today, so I plugged in the DelTran 800 battery tender that charges the K75S (and the Thumper before this): no go. The manual suggests that I will...

    cornfusing

    There's a kernel of truth in this story, as well . . . .

    Another brick in the wall

    Well, after thinking out loud on this forum, and reading your suggestions, I threw down today for a '94 K75s in a color the dealer (who sold this bike to its one and only owners) identifies as...

    Planned usage

    How would I use either bike? Mostly local riding--circumstances keep me close to home these days--but also for the occasional run from Miami to Key West, etc. No long-distance tours planned for the...

    Next bike: F800ST or K75s?

    Hot flashes

    Thanks to all for the news and views; heat is my concern a K75RT, and there is good confirmation of that issue in the posts here. Blisters beneath a 'stich? Whoa. It seems the RS and RT are...

    well, that's what I've been thinking

    From what I've read and heard, the relative nakedness of the K75S keeps it from throwing as much heat right at the rider's legs as the RS and RT do. Too bad; I really like what I am reading about...

    Is a K75RT too hot for Florida?

    Appealing to the wisdom of the board here, and especially to southern riders, as I look to add a BMW touring bike to my F650GS. I have my eye on a '94 K75RT, and have been reading posts on the...

  15. R12R vs Guzzi vid on YouTube

    Bill,

    That's funny; late last night I found the same video, and had to eat my words. I couldn't say for certain, but perhaps the roadster goes over better in Europe than it does here; the R850 in...
  16. Maybe my next bike?

    I have less experience to go on than others posting, so I don't know about the R-R being underappreciated, except to agree that I see almost no advertising for it and, as others have commented, no...

    Thanks

    Thanks to all for your views; very much appreciated. I am certainly going to look at the bike--other threads on this site suggest as well that the R850R is a good model in its own right (looks like...

    '98 R850R non-ABS

    I'm hoping to get a look at a locally available '98 R850R with only 3700 miles on the odo, BMW hard cases and auxiliary lights up front. I currently ride an '02 F650 GS with ABS, and a '92 Shadow...
