Re: Transmission and Rear Axle Oil for Oilheads

I just bought a 2000 K1200LT, my 1st BMW. After some research, I changed the tranny and final drive oil to Royal Purple. Also at the recommendation of another forum, have removed and lubricated the shift linkages. (I have since purchased aftermarket linkages on EBay, but have yet to install them). I...

Looking for another bike. BMW?

12 hours without a motorcycle, and already having withdrawals. Thinking of buying a used BMW K1200 LT. Can any of you offer advice or commentary on these?

Re: So, I have to re-take my road test for a car and bike!

The front brake only supplies braking power if you use it, lol. So, in Texas, if you use the rear brake only, you only think you stop?

Re: Are we experiencing a "practical bike" renaissance?

After owning a Honda VTX 1300, I fail to understand the whole large displacement cruiser thing. It was pretty, but it didn't do anything particularly well. I had much more fun on my Kawasaki 550 LTD. I still like big displacement bikes, but I expect them to be rideable. Love the Yamaha FJR 1300 and ...

Re: This Week - 2012 Yamaha FZ6R: Vote & Discuss

I voted cool.

I like the riding position, as it would seem more comfortable to ride many miles than a full race bike.

Re: Honda Celebrate Success at 2012 Isle of Man TT

I and my riding buddies love the Isle of Man TT races! Too bad we could not find them televised this year. Used to get it on one of the Discovery channels.

Re: 2012 Honda Gold Wing GL1800: Voted Uncool

If you think the Goldwing is no fun to ride, either you haven't ridden one, or didn't twist the throttle hard enough. In spite of their size, they handle the twisties well. :goldwing: It is also real fun to meet Harley riders, then take them out for a ride. They are always blown away by the smooth r...

Re: Chinese motorcycles, give me your view

:thumbsup: Dave,
Feel free to send me any two demo models, and I would be glad to put many miles on them in a variety of conditions. I would then be glad to eloquently express my unbiased opinions regarding each of them.

Regards,

Perry

Re: Boots

I ride with boots. Tour master solution road boots. I have an old pair 1st generation, and a pair of tour master solution II. I like the first design better, and was unable to get any more of them. The II's are still a great boot, I just prefer the first version. And yes, I do feel safer in riding b...

Ride tonight

Anyone in Pinellas, Hillsboro, or Pasco want to join us for a ride tonight? (Monday, 2/20). We will probably meet around 10 or 10:30.

Re: Honda's Adventure Seeking Crosstourer Is Coming

Sounds like Honda is tired of losing that niche market to Kawasali's KLR. Can't wait to see one! I like the BMW (R1200GS Adventure?) also.
