    I agree, cold tires take at least five miles, to more like ten miles to come up to temp if the air temp is below 40 F. I found this out for real about four years back. Used my 94 RS to lead a demo...

    Anyone have any success with the miracle cure vitamin/drugs available online? I really doubt any of it is effective in the least way, but I am curious if it does anything to reduce the effect?

    I'll be watching progress on this as well. I am just starting my 2007 R1200RT conversion project to a R1200RS. I bought the bike with only 5,900 miles on it, not even broken in at all. I'm curious if...

    Not sure why, but BMW seems to insist on designing seats that cause the rider to "run into" the back of the fuel tank. Seems all modern BMWs other than airheads have this anomoly, that the rider...

    At Nick's BMW in the Green Bay area, we've sold maybe a total of eight S1000RR over the years since it's been out. So I look at the S1000R as another model too closely associated with the 1000RR, and...

    Modify/enlarge a metal fuel tank?

    Anyone ever done it? I am working on a custom R1200RS project, and it may involve modifying a R1200R fuel tank because I want more capacity. I would think it can be enlarged by, in a sense, cutting...

    Maybe yes, but mostly no. You have to at least pick a bike you CAN get used to. If it's too big, too heavy, too strong, to begin with a new rider may never have the chance to "get used to it." A...
