    Well, as they always teach in the MSF safety courses, everyone has to understand their own personal risk tolerance level. To me, the risk of having my insurance company go to court rather than pay a...

    I agree completely. I keep saying this will be taught in businesses schools in the future as a case study of how NOT to do customer communication. BMW should have hired Winston Wolfe.

    I traded a 2010 R1200R for my 2014 R1200RT. Where I really felt the power increase was at the high end. On my first ride on it after driving off the dealer's lot, the first time I went to do a pass...

    You can set the diamond icon to open whatever menu you use the most. I'm not sure what I have mine set to now but will probably set it to the grip heaters once the weather gets cool. Assuming I'm...

    I had a very hard time seeing the information on the 1996-era LCD display on the 2011 that I had. I personally find the 2014 much, much easier to read particularly but not exclusively in bright...

    I had a 2011 loaner RT from my dealer for a month so was able to do a really close side by side comparison. The 2014 is more than a different engine: it's about a 75% new bike. Not only more...

    What I'm saying is that given the existence of the do not ride memo, if someone had an accident, there is a very high probability that their insurance company would try to refuse to pay a claim, and...

    Everyone makes their own choices. I just see riding despite a do-not-ride bulletin as the equivalent of riding without a helmet, but with potentially much larger personal financial repercussions.

    As they teach in the MSF courses, most accidents happen within five miles of home. And I'm pretty sure that an insurance company would refuse to pay a claim for an accident that happened during a do...

    I had the exact same issue. If you go into settings/audio/loudspeakers there's an on/off selection.

    As I was playing around with this, I also discovered something else I didn't know before: if...

    I don't think that will be an issue. After the huge publicity black eye BMW has suffered because of this, it's not going to do something as dumb as failing to make enough replacement rear shocks.

    I have a 29" inseam and on the 2014, the regular seat set in the low position works fine. I can't flatfoot both feet but am close enough that I feel comfortable. On older RTs, I needed a low seat.

    The Givi XS308 works well. The bars hit the bag with maybe the last 1/2 inch of full turn, but I don't consider that a deal breaker. The BF 11 flange fits. I may also get one of the smaller Givi...
