    Hear, hear! That's a report with meaning and value. No theorizing or resisting because you like to complain. The proof of the pudding is in the eating. So, like I said before: the Beemer will run...

    Well, I guess it will do the job nicely. It seems like an advanced piece of technology. I personally think it's a bit too much money for the advantage of the technology it offers. In your case you...

    The average live of a clutch is hard to say. Mine's got nearly 170.000kms on it (not miles, I'm in Europe) and as far as I can tell, it's on it's first.

    I met a guy at the BMW Motorrad Days who's...

    Depends... Why do you think you need one?
    It's lighter, but does that matter? Are you in competition sport where every ounce matters?

    We don't have the charcoal canister in Europe at all. My model doesn't have the cat. I think it was still optional at that time. Later models do have the cat as standard.

    I think you underestimate your Beemer. I've been in Morocco, where they seem to mix something they call fuel with camelpiss. My '97 RT runs fine with it. And a lot of people went around the world on...

    Normally, you'd don't want to buy a tyre that's older than 2 years, because it's been lying on a shelf for that long. Or your shop is buying old tyres.

    In reality, when stored properly, they may...

    Who cares what the designation is or what it means/supposed to mean? I couldn't care less if my R850RT was called the Q32WW or whatever. As long as it rides good.

    Standing on the pegs on a racer is very difficult because the steering is too low. You'd be very uncomfortable. Om my R850RT it's not a problem, but I'm bend over a bit. A GS (and dirtbike too) have...

    Maybe, but it's not like it's a punishment to do it on a RT. The perfect bike does not exist and you'd need 6 bikes for different circumstances, but that is not to say that you wouldn't enjoy the...

    Where did you get that idea? A GSA is almost as heavy as my RT. I can do the Alps on any bike, from a scooter to a HD. I honestly can't see the problem in riding such a bike. I also did 'adventure'...
