    If she purposely moved to block him, I could see there being charges against her, however I don't see how it could be more than negligence at most. Still I find it very hard to completely blame...

    Honestly, at the speed he was going he was riding very recklessly. I would have a hard time purely blaming her for the incident as there was hardly sufficient time for anyone to react to a...

    Is yours tail light the one with the clear turn signal lenses, or the yellow ones? I have an extra with yellow lenses around here somewhere.

    Just had to change my bulbs for the first time on my '13 RT. 22,500 miles and the right one went out. Replaced with my favorite, the Osram Night Breaker Unlimited. $40 a pair from Powerbulbs. ...

    I think the point was that many R1200 model bikes (from what I've seen up to 2008 year models) were issued with a "lifetime fill" for the final drive. After many failures, BMW made a couple changes...

    Once you loosen the set screw through the hole in the bottom, the mirror (just the mirror glass) should just pop off when you pull on it. If it doesn't feel like it's coming off, make sure the set...

    Really depends on your riding habits and use of the bike.

    If you put down serious miles on the roadway, you cannot beat the RT. As said before, it is the king of weather protection and comfort...

    Yep, that sounds exactly what I had and seemed to go away around the same time as well. At least it's gone now and I'm back to shifting as usual (almost always fully clutching).

    Update on this. Now up over 20,000 miles on the bike and the problem is completely gone. I changed the transmission fluid around 12k to see if it helped and I don't know if it correlates directly...

    Sorry for the late response. Antenna works as well as the last one did, only looks a lot better and doesn't blow around in the wind.

    What he said. Make sure you are running good oil. I did an 8 hour tarmac low speed course on a 114 degree day and never saw my gauge get over 6 bars. Remember it's often worse to turn off the bike...

    Ah, the old tutorial on how to do this is down. It's really pretty simple though and you don't have to disassemble the case. You need to open up the little button thingy that sits above the lock...

    I was curious about this as I didn't know what that cap was until now. If you can fill it through the vent hole, that would negate the need to remove the rear wheel to get to the filler plug.

    On my '13 R1200RT, I have had to adjust the exhaust valves once so far at the 12k service. Upon checking on this last service (18k miles) the gaps had increased a bit, but not out of spec. I'm...

    I think the '13 transmission require a little break in. I also bought a '13 RT at the end of the year when they had the $3000 discount going. I didn't have the problem you did, but I had issues...

    It sucks that you had to push hard to get a loaner. I've been in the same situation with a car before.

    The hexhead R1200S made 122hp and weighed 470lbs wet. It's a great bike and I'd be very hesitant to deal with adding a water system for 13 more hp.

    I'm still really not sold on the whole wethead...

    Frankly, I don't trust dealers enough to buy any of their "recomendations" that supposedly come from the fatherland. Did they actual show you a memo from BMW officially saying this?

    Best way down a steep hill is to put the bike in first gear, stand to the left of it and back it down using the clutch as a brake to modulate how fast you go. You can leave the kickstand down if you...
