    Yes but...I was riding with him over most of those roads, and my Continentals and Dunlops haven't worn like that. ;)


    It's the front tire, which is really strange.

    My riding buddy up north has the Road 5 and the front has the weirdest wear pattern ever. The center looks like new, but the sides are getting close to the wear bars.

    Besides the BMW offerings, I suggest looking at Shad and other manufacturers. I have SW-Motech 37 liter panniers on my GT. It does make it wide. But...you can fit any size SW-Motech pannier on...

    I carry one of those jump-start batteries. They are small, yet hold enough juice to start a car several times. I've never used it on my own bike, just on other's bikes.

    Tris, this is something I find helpful to put together. Prices are current from Revzilla as of 4/1. You have the price of the front and rear, minus any rebate and then ranked by the total price. I...

    I rode a friend's GT who had the Michelin Road 5 and I wasn't impressed. They were a good tyre, but there was nothing special about them, and I really preferred the feel of what I was using on my...

    The design reminds me of an Osprey with rotating wings to allow vertical takeoff and landing.

    If they kept an engine design similar to the Subaru cars, BMW would have competition with the boxer...

    Just turned over 66,000 miles on my 2014 GT. It runs like a top. It smoothed out noticeably at 30,000 miles and still is very smooth. It never was that bad regarding vibration, but it actually got...

    You'll probably think I'm crazy, but I generally don't change the air filter on my motorcycles. For that matter, I can't remember changing the air filter on my cars either. When I've taken the air...

    Good luck on that one! The shaft driven bikes are a dying breed. BMW may be the last holdout. I expect the Kawasaki C14 to be discontinued at some point. Emissions will be the death blow,...

    Good points above. I would've thought the 37-liter Trax cases would act like barn doors. I often refer to them as such. But to my surprise, they don't. I ride often with jtvisions and our gas...

    I use a Sena 10C Pro. It's a combination BT headset and camera. As a camera, it can take videos and snapshots...and you can even take snapshots in the middle of a video.

    I wouldn't touch it. The Garmin 660 was discontinued many years ago.

    The Zumo XT is on sale for $399. If you are retired military, you can get a 10% discount from that price at Cycle Gear. Even...

    At 30,000 miles, I felt like my GT really smoothed out. There had been a vibration in the rpm range at 3500-4000 rpms. After that, it was gone. Of course, each bike is different.
