  1. Shift peg fix

    This question seems to come up a number of times.
    I had the same problem. I wanted an upright riding position

    Whoa

    Be very cautious here. Keeping in mind, everybody's body is different,
    here's my experience.
    I have had 6 BMWs and 4 Harleys.

    How is this quest going?
    Have you sat on one?
    Have you got one?
    Inquiring minds want to know.

    Or at least one crazy BMW nut.

    Where

    I was wondering where Sogn Valley is.
    It looks like a nice place to ride.
    I could not find it on a map.
    This picture is on Cty Hyway 15 near Winona, Mn.
    I rode there last weekend.

    What you didn't ask was "Is this a good bike for my wife?"
    There is a reason this bike has scuff marks in various places.
    It is heavy and is top heavy too.

    I too have a love/hate relationship with my K1200GT.

    Gas in the bike

    In my question, I am wondering about what Paul G. says in the article.
    He says, always drain it from your bike in the spring.
    I have never had a problem either.

    Are you saying that you would rather ride (and have) your K1100RS?

    I face that same question, although having both is possible.

    search

    How can I use the search function to find posts on the BMW K1?
    It would not use K1 or K 1 as a search function because it is too short or 'common'.
    Are there any archives of posts?

    changes

    What changed from 1990 to 1993?
    Does the 93 have the 1100 engine?
    Does it have ABS II?
    Does it have floating brake rotors?
    What else?

    Thanks for any info

    After you create your own map and save it,
    how do you add states?
    Or do you just start over each time?

    Do a search for barbacks or bar backs and you will find some threads with info and part numbers that I used.
    I put some on my 96 K1100RS and like them.
