    I may just continue to ride my GTL and shift my deposit to a 2015 San Marino blue with keyless ride. I just hope there's a plan B if the keyless system goes belly up on me. OTOH, the G16GTLE folks...

    I suppose I'd give it a try if I ran across some but according to pure-gas.org the closest non-marina ethanol-free gas is 40 miles in a direction I seldom go. Zero ethanol-free stations listed in...

    For wetheads, engine oil = clutch oil = transmission oil. Final drive is different though.

    The good news is my new RT (production date 5/22/2014) just arrived in New Jersey this morning. Like many others, me and my dealer are trying to figure out if my bike is affected by the do not ride...

    Once they're fixed, there's nothing wrong with the shock so why would the resale go down? 2001 & 2002 Goldwings had a frame cracking problem, Honda supplied new frames for the affected bikes. Any...

    Hadn't heard of this product before, looks interesting. I use ROK straps around the passenger grabrails, similar idea to the Helen TwoWheels straps. My feeling is that the edges of the rail have...

    Hadn't thought about that. Has anyone heard whether GS models are affected as well? They have dynamic ESA as an option too.

    Interesting. After copying the list to Excel and playing with it, some interesting facts:

    Only 1119 VINs are listed although elsewhere I've heard 8000 or so bikes are affected.
    It looks like...

    There is the regular seat with high and low positions. A low seat with high and low positions. I believe I even saw something about a high seat, which would have high and low positions. Total of...

    I rented one and rode it through Death Valley 2 weeks ago and didn't notice any issues with engine heat. ATGATT, wet tee shirt underneath for cooling. Better @ 98 degrees than my GTL at 80 (left...

    GL1800 FD may fail after 100K miles although over 250K isn't unheard-of. Some folks buy trike takeoffs just to have a cheap spare.

    The trick to Hill Start is not only firm but quick - it's the sudden rise in pressure that triggers it.

    Keep your dirty oily fingers off the sticky! The adhesive sticks really well to painted ABS, not so much to fingers.

    Clean the area where you're going to install the strips. Soap & water for...

    Looks like you needed new tires anyway :bolt. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't use that method to replace them though.

    Too bad about the mishap, you're a brave soul for sharing your painful lesson with...

    FWIW, 2014 RT doesn't have ESA II, it has Dynamic ESA. Based on what BMW's site says, Dynamic ESA talks to the ABS and traction control. Presumably ESA II doesn't. The actual mechanism of how they...

    No notice on my K1600 GTL and it's build date is in the range affected. Even if I don't hear anything I'll bring it to their attention at the 12,000 mile service. If the winter ends soon, that'll...

    I am heartily sick of snow, sleet, salt, icy roads and all the rest. It rained Thursday, been above freezing except a few hours overnight since then so the roads are mostly clear except for leftover...

    I saw one at the Washington IMS show and liked it. I have a K1600 GTL now so the dash is familiar. A lot of the styling cues from the K1600 have carried over onto the RT and I can live with that. ...

    From another thread I noted that BMW is instituting some power-saving measures. Voltage to the high beams goes from 0 to 12V then back to zero, so there's about 10 milliseconds of full power then 10...

    Hydraulic lifters are fine for low-revving engines. They use engine oil as the hydraulic fluid and it simply can't flow through the tiny orifices involved fast enough to work properly at high...

    I've been waiting for this since October 22. The fault, when it occurs, usually causes it to go into limp-home mode, although sometimes it goes into drop-dead mode. Mine quit 3 times in 5 miles and...

    Thing is, if they set he price high enough to make a profit, it might be so pricey that no one would buy one. So their real profit would be zero. Or they could build it into the purchase price and...
