    Anyone had experience with BG products for your bike?

    Hello to all who have the psychiatric condition known as BMW Motorcycle Addiction!
    35 years ago I was working in a European Car Shop and we used BG products extensively because they worked beyond our expectations. I have not tried their products in motorcycle applications and would be most appreciative for any feedback the faithful could provide RE: their experience using BG products in their motorcycles. Advice, experiences, death threats and sexual harrassment welcome.

    Regards,

    Will

    I think the oil additive BG MOA?« would be recommended by our organisation!

    If you are a REAL BMW addict you use only REAL BMW parts including REAL BMW air in the tires. Any substitution can cause blindness, death, or worse.

    I think the products would work exactly the same in a bike as it would in a car as long as the amount is adjusted for the bike.
    'You can say what you want about the South, but I almost never hear of anyone wanting to retire to the North.

    I see you've been to the BMW dealer in Vermont. He told me:

    1. Touratech crashbars would crack the engine in a tipover
    2. Galfers brake rotors would cause my brakes to seize, sending me over the bars
    3. Risers would change the steering geometry and make the GS unstable
    4. Using Amzoil MC oil would shorten my engine life by half
    5. Installing a Mudsling would cause my rear shock to overheat and fail
    '07 R1200GS for solo rides
    '10 R1200GSA with Hannigan dual sport sidecar for rides with Barley
