Re: Old Fourm members

I joined in 2013, the same year that I bought my hold over 2011 R1200R. Just passed 52,500 miles coming back from the MOA National Rally Monday. The bike is running better now than ever. I've had a couple issues which though disappointing were easily fixed. Transmission input seal and counter balan...

Re: Budget for Riding Season

I think about how much budget is needed to travel by car. The bike is a bargain.

Re: Hello

I think the Rockster (and the R for that matter too) were panned because the R1150S had 20% more horsepower with a motor that looked identical.
I still feel a little cheated about that :(

To squeegee the third eye, i.e. disconnect from it all.

Re: Sargent seat, how much rise from original?

Nope. That seat is so well made, after a decade of my big butt it's the same as it was when I got it, and I got mine USED.

Re: Access to battery terminals? USB outlet wiring & mounting.

Unfortunately, sweatmark is correct. Tank removal will be required. without a doubt, the most annoying thing about this bike is the battery, and it's location. After a lifetime of Honda's, I could not get my head around BMW's design decision to hide the battery like this. I have a jump start battery...

Re: Sargent seat, how much rise from original?

The factory seat can be a real jewel breaker on hard braking, and long hours in the saddle. The Sargent seat is wider, but not all that much taller. The wideness of the seat makes planting the feet farther way from the pavement. Also creates a lot more comfort. The Stock seat is a 150 mile seat, i.e...

Disclaimer: I am not a mechanic! So I don't have those eyes! I took the bike to Roland and The Spare Parts Company in Philly, and it turns out, the front top gear oil filler plug lost it's torque, and was weeping at high RPM. The weep was so light, the gear oil was not visible on the drive case itse...
