    The R1150R had a really tight leg position. I clearly remember it because I had a K1100LT at the time and was given the R as a loaner from Santa Cruz BMW. It really cramped my legs. I find my current...

    Heck, it gets you out there, does most things well that you need, and it's paid for. Life is good. I spent too many dollars and years chasing incremental improvements, thinking it would bring more...

    That was a beautiful story. He might not even approached you if you were with others, or related that moment.

    I also ride solo most of the time for all the reasons recently stated so well.

    How can the engine going dead lock the rear wheel at 55 mph in high gear? The rear wheel would have tremendous leverage over the engine in 5th or 6th gear and likely keep it spinning even if it is...

    I believe 1995 and 1996 in Marrakesh Red had the decals. I had a 1993 in Mystic red (no decal) and a 1995 in the Marrakesh (with decal). They're great bikes, smoother than K1 and K100 due to the...

    I agree with Rad and Weschmann that bicycling works wonders for the knee joints. I was a runner and have had arthroscopic surgery on both knees for meniscus tears (15 years ago). Have had another...

    I had two R1100RT's and I understand the annoyance about the surging.... mine both had it and it drove me nuts in town, especially with the clunky gearbox action... no amount of fiddling with the...

    Airflow off the windscreen can also affect the antenna. When I bought my 2012 it had a larger Calsci on it and the antenna would go wild at higher speeds... after installing the stock screen back...

    I can only imagine... horrible aerodynamics... bikes are bad enough as it is for their load capacity.

    I bought a barely used ST1300 a couple years ago to replace my aging K1100LT. Sold it within a month. Yes, it had that awesome V4, and they are extremely reliable, but nothing else stood out....

    I agree with Royce - I find the stock (2010 and later) stock shield on the R1200RT to be the best overall for performance, with decent coverage. Had a couple others, one with reverse curvature, that...

    Do you have free play in the clutch lever? If not, then the clutch master or slave cyl is the likely problem. If you have free play, then you could have a bad rear main seal that is leaking engine...

    Yoga 3x/wk, cycling 3x/wk, light weights almost daily. Cut out all alcohol and refined sugars. Oh yeah, quit the job too. Never felt better.

    Since you ride mostly pavement, why not a 2012 or 2013 RT? Great prices on them lately now that the new wethead version is out. Might not cost you much at all to swap over.

    If you really want an early "brick" I highly recommend a K1100 vs the K100. Way less buzzy, with upgraded suspension and Brembo brakes (same as the K100 16V). The 94 and later have ABS II which is a...

    I ride a lot of curvy two lanes and like enough power to pass safely and quickly as I hate to be stuck behind dawdlers on a good road. The 110 HP on the RT camhead is adequate, but can be a little...

    I found my K1100's to be a bit buzzy, the K100 is worse. Also the RS has low, narrow bars that require one to lean forward, which was uncomfortable on my neck. There is no good windscreen solution....

    Yeah, brake master cyl will likely need replacement or rebuild. I have never seen a bike sit for more than a few years without problems in that area specifically. They get corroded and gummed up....
