Hello. Please have some patience. I have a bike problem and I have never blogged before. My 1999 R1100 RT_P overheated driving into wash DC with a fair amount of stop and go traffic. Then on my way home it again reached eight bars where it was even with the bottom of the red light. The light never came on but I know BMWs don't need to get that hot. I am pretty sure the P version has a fan added to the radater to keep the bike cool. Can someone suggest what is going on. Thanks.
Now I tested it for twenty minutes in my driveway and again it reached eight bars.
Don't know how to acknowledge the many helpful suggestions. Thanks I will try living with the eight bars.
