    Today, I tried to remove the mirror of my 2101 RT, the way I remember the dealer's tech do it. I applied a moderate force and nothing happened. Maybe, they're tight when the bike is new. I quit...

    Actually they use the stock foot pegs and remount them with the lowering bracket. I initially ordered a shift lever extender, but decided that I didn't need it, so I never put them on. The brake...

    Actually, I happened by my dealer a few days ago and asked the service tech this same question. He demonstrated that the mirrors just pull off. This appears to be the same as some of you have...

    No. I don't use a tank bag. I suspect that if one used the BMW bag, it would interfere with the GPS. If there was a way to use a smaller bag, it could work.

    2010 RT mirror removal

    Can anyone explain if and how one can remove the mirrors on a 2010 RT. I am new to the bike and don't want to break anything, but I would like to access the back of the mirror. Thanks.

  10. Can I change my screen name to lower case letters?

    Somehow, my screen name ended up in all capital letters. As I don't want everyone to think that I'm yelling my name, I would like to change it to upper and lower case. Is there any way to do that?

    I agree with everyone except for one thing - as far as I'm concerned, riding in the rain is not fun. I do it if and when I have to and I don't freak out at the sight of a storm cloud, but I would...

    I recently bought a 2010RT and had a BMW gps mount installed between the handlebars. I preferred that location as it is easier to reach than stretching to the area above the instruments, which is...

    Actually that little bag would be perfect and replicate the windshield bag that I used to have on my cruiser. If only I hadn't installed my GPS between the handlebars!!

    I actually did this with the garage opener this weekend. But I haven't tried riding with this setup yet, so I don't know if the velcro will hold. The drawback is that it makes it even more difficult...

    "glove" compartment in 2010 RT

    I just got a 2010 RT without the sound system option. There is a glove box opening in the right fairing which is very awkwardly shaped. It's also deep enough that any small object you put in there...
