    Autocom System

    Thanks, but how do you talk? Or do you stop to talk? My pnone pairs fine with my GPS, and my GPS, XM radio (and probably radar detector) link to my Autocomm, but I don't have a mic to talk with. ...

    Touratech Guard and Pegs

    I have both on my '07 RT. The pegs contact the top rail of the touratech guard, but unless you mind a very, very minor inconvenience, it works fine. I had a previous guard that provided more...

    BMW Navigator II Problem

    I agree you should do that, but my Navigator III (on the standard BMW mount) and XM radio ( powered directly by the rear cigarette lighter on my RT), sometimes, but not often, loses power. When I...

    Windshield Dilemma

    The first thing I would ask is: why? For better protection in cold weather? I ask that because I use a larger screen for winter riding, but go back to the standard shield in the spring. A person...

    R1200RT vs. R1200GSA Specs

    And here is the RT Spec Sheet. Interesting to note that the RT actually will carry a heavier load than the GSA, isn't it? Most GSA owners think that they have the edge, I'd bet. The RT is better...

    R1200RT vs. R1200GSA Specs

    Not wanting to let go of this, I have uploaded spec sheet info, so alcon can see why the two bikes differ in mileage and (assumed?) accelleration. Logically, lower gearing would give the bike more...

    Detuning R1200RT

    Could it be that the reason the GS has more accelleration at 60-80 is because of its lower gearing? The gearing in the RT and GS are not the same, you know. That is one of the reasons the RT has...

    RT1200 Oil Use

    When I first got my '07 RT, 36,000+ miles ago, it used a little oil. I put a half-quart of oil in it twice. More recently, though, it uses virtually none. I just made a long trip to SD and back...

    FYI, I've had both the Wunderlich and Touratech bars on my bike. In my opinion, the Touratech bars are better looking and provide a little more protection. There might be some advantages of the...

    Top Case

    I feel that the BMW RT hard top case it is too heavy. I used it for a 5000-mi trip two years ago, and it worked fine, but this year, for the same trip, I decided to use BMW's large soft case ($220...

    How to Lower an R1200RT

    If you don't mind spending a grand or so, your dealer (or another shop) can install shorter shocks. I'm told by them that you can lower the bike about an inch without changing or modifiying the side...

    Powerlet Output

    The front power outlet on my '07 RT seems to run my Gerbing's vest and gloves just fine. It has never shut down, that I've noticed.
