    I took mine in with 11,677 miles when the light was on. Apparently it was the 12-month service. So they did it and reset the indicator. 23 miles later, it came on again. 12,000 mile service due. ...

    Getting old is not for sissies. Something's going on with my clutch hand and I'm not sure I want to find out what it is for fear it will end my season. Maybe I'll have it looked at in December. ...

    My TPM tends to read low, and fluctuates a little too. One day it'll say 39F/40R, the next day 40/40, a couple days later 38/41. In all cases my gage says 40/42. I figure it's useful for detecting...

    Service question

    I'll be leaving in a couple of weeks for an extended trip on my K1600 GTL and my 18,000 mile service will fall right in the middle. So my choices are: do it before I leave; set aside a day to have...

    Dealers typically get the bikes loaded with every conceivable option so if yours didn't have the GPS prep I'd be surprised. OTOH if it's really not there it wouldn't be the first time I was wrong. ...

    @rgmanley, I find your comments enlightening but you're comparing a camhead RT and a waterhead GS. I imagine much of the performance difference is due to the new engine. How do the ergos compare? ...

    How much harder is it to get the covers off for checking valve clearances?

    My personal experience is that the RT has the best weather protection/least buffeting of any bike I've ridden, bar none. At least for the rider. I never had a passenger on mine so can't speak to...
