    In terms of comfort, I'm sorry to say that if you get an RT and wish to travel for more than 2 hours comfortably, you will have to spend another $600+ for an aftermarket seat. I did a ten day tour...

    Corbin is by far the most advertised of the aftermarket and they make seats for many different bikes. Their quality of construction, especially the seat pan is very good in my opinion. I'm relatively...

    Just digesting all the comments pro and con on each seat. At least one Mayer brother has unacceptable customer relations, and you have to send in your seat pan to Russell. Sargent is said to be less...

    Even at $686 list price, this seat appears to be the best bang for the buck for those who wish to ride 300+ miles per day.

    I'd still like to know where in California the comfort seat can be bought for $599, as Jack did. I can't find it for less than $686. Please, no replies about Chicago BMW.

    I was disappointed with the Airhawk. It feels great when you first get on it, but sure enough, at about 100 miles, you have to get off. Although you don't hurt as much as the stock seat, you can't...

    The Wunderlich bars don't mount to the frame either—they mount to the engine casing itself. There is a documented report on this forum of the Wunderlich bars tearing open the bottom of the engine...

  10. Can't find trip odometer in dash display '09 R1200RT

    As I cycle through the BC functions on my '09 r1200rt, I'm unable to bring up the Trip Odometer. Is there something I am missing, or is this an option I don't have?

    My gauge went out on me at the start of an 8 day tour last week (2009 r1200rt). I called ahead to Sandia BMW in Albuquerque and made an appt. for when I was passing through that city. The dealership...

    Well, I took apart the fairing pieces to remove the old blinker unit and realized that my 2009 RT is nothing like the '05 that started this post! There are two screws holding this blinker in, and...

    Thanks for the comments guys! I'm going to go with a heated screw that is greased. I'll first torch the screw while holding in in a captive screw driver, spray it with a little Windex to cool it to...

    I'm interested in hearing how this resolved because I will be replacing my right front lens next week. For those that have done it successfully, did simply lubricating the screw prevent it from...

    I thought the KTM 450 could not be purchased "street-legal" from the factory anymore. If you have to use an aftermarket kit to make it work, it is never quite like factory electrics. I know, I've...

    Police RT?

    Can a civilian purchase a new police R1200RT (without the siren and flashing ilghts)? I think this would make a great solo touring bike, and the bike just looks good!

    Wow! This site has saved me a huge amount of dollars and headaches. I was seriously thinking of a Mayer seat. Will go with a Sargent now.

    I put 3M protective film on the top of my painted saddlebags! When absent minded, my feet still drag across now and again.

    My BMW dealer (GoAZ) is also adding the pigtail extension directly connected to the battery. How do I know? I found the plastic plug end hanging down and melted onto the exhaust pipe.

  24. ESA pre-load: is it real spring pre-load adjustment?

    To change pre-load with ESA, the bike must be running, so I assumed more electrical power was needed to compress the springs. Funny thing though, when I cycle through the settings (one helmet, two...
