    Any new thoughts?

    So it's been a few months - I'm about to hit 12K and it looks like the Pirelli's I put on at 6K are on their last legs (the front, at least). Has anyone tried that Michelin? Any other suggestions?

    Topcase fell off?!!

    Hi, all, I just found the BMWMMOA and joined today - bought a 650GT 6 weeks ago and love it (2700 miles so far, and that's just weekend riding - I use my Vespa 300GTS for weekday runabouts).
