much better idea IMHO
I'm not a fan of Ohlins. Since they were bought out by Yamaha, I find them to be over-priced, and the quality has suffered. I'm now a fan of Hyper-Pro of Wilbers. :dance
works on my wifes airhead with Velorex sidecar.
The bulb was removed from the turnsignal on her R1150R with EZS sidecar.
nothing like watching your daughter drop a brand new motorcycle. And she will.... we all have.
Better to start on something smaller and lighter.......... and used!
I'd want to know where she was keeping her other husband, because I've got some bills that need paying! :hungover
other than one set of TKC-80's, which i had a lot of fun with! :brow
for many years, or bash anyone's choice as to whether or not they keep their beloved two wheel'd companion for only a few years or less. I have ridden and owned a # of BMW's... usually for 30k to...
but is better with the older BMW's...
Ping me for details.
I don't know if it would make a difference, but i would be screaming bloody murder to someone.
now as to the visibility question:
even as a motorcyclist, i can't tell you how many times that i...
I've owned/ridden a R100GSPD, R1150GSA, R1100GS and an R1200GS and i'm only 5'5" as well. (29" inseam, but I won't ever admit to that :hungover) But then again, i only put one foot down when i...
A bit further away is the Yankee Beemers. Another great group of people
I have been going to the Finger Lakes rally for the better part of 20 years; and it's always been one of my favorites
Well, this year I have to say was absolutely a disappointment for me. The...
the way to make the R1100GS into a touring bike for taller folks like yourself is to add a Aeroflow. It's a big barn-door looking thing, but supposedly it works very well.
Can't speak to your...
adventure bike. A bit old school, but a lot of people think that they were the best of the GS's.
Dont know why it may have an issue at 4000 rpms though.
A few things to look out for.
and split the difference with him... that will give you almost enough to add the bags and racks.... or at least a start towards them.
I had my GSPD for 4 years and about 30k miles, and averaged mid 30's for US MPG. No where NEAR 50....
I am not far away from you, over the bridge and a bit north. If you are looking for an alternative dealer, I would suggest that you call Max BMW of Danbury. (actually Brookfield now, but who's...
But I'm of the opinion that ever since Ohlin's was bought out, that the quality has decreased. I read much more often about people who have their shocks leak for one reason or another.
Is there any rallies on the East coast in July? I have a few friends that have been trying to find somewhere to show our face sometime after the 4th.
That is exactly what I do. If I'm on my GS I know that I have to be smart. On my DR350; not so much
you have to be a rider who rides like a sport rider, or a track day rider to appreciate the "upgrade" of after market shocks.
My two cents is that the bike handles and stops much better with...
This could be an indication that your Valeo magnets came unglued. Replace the starter
Yes! The PR3's are excellent tires!!!
I was lucky enough to be introduced to ear plugs during my second year of riding. I don't leave the driveway now without them in my ears
Bill was a wonderful old-school BMW guy and shop owner
He will be missed
