    At 5'6" myself, I've given up on ever flat-footing a motorcycle. I ride a GT with the normal or regular stock seat. When touring, I'm using an AirHawk seat cushion, which adds some height.

    The BMW tech should have a tester that will help him find the short, if there is one quickly. This might be an excuse to buy one of those testers for yourself.

    So I'm curious about this. A dynamic wheel balancer would be the best option, but at the prices they go for, it isn't going to happen. So last night I was looking at static wheel balancers. Then I...

    For me, it isn't just the "rally" that makes it worth going, but the ride to and from as well. Here's a few pics I thought I'd share from the ST-Owners WESTOC rally.

    I love the golden fields.
