    True -- I'm a week early. This is a bit embarrassing!

    If you read the news, you probably know that Illinois is different from the rest of the country (I hope) (but the time is the same).

    I just posted this on the F800 Rider's forum and thought I'd add it here to see what the reaction is:

    Copandengr is correct. I do use a small bit of silicone grease. A quick way to eliminate the rubber theory is to press down on the tank or lift the front edge when the noise occurs. If this is the...

    Where was this S1000 picture taken?

    Does anyone know where the first photo on the MOA home page was taken? The one with Steve Brogan in the air? What track? What section? Incredible!

    Pain in the arse if you're removing the fairing every winter, like I do. I took them off and installed fork boots, like most others in this thread, and haven't noticed any difference in wind or cold.

    Are shims available for purchase, or are they a BMW top secret thing? I'm taking mine in for the 24k mile check and will have the valves checked. The next time I will be checking them myself.
