    I did read and check through everything in the manual, but did miss that the reserve mileage reads up, not down, in practice.

    I tested this once in my GT in very early ownership. Not realising the count was from 0 upwards when the red light came on (our car counts down), I got 36 miles and coasted into the fuel station...

    Might be worth a check of your chassis # with a dealer. There have been one or two recalls relating to handlebar switchgear. You might be lucky and get a free replacement.

    Hopefully the water you added to the system did not dilute things so much that it got the chance to freeze. Why you had trouble or noises on start-up I am not so sure.

    If you understand what the various green /amber/red flashing LEDs mean, then good. Likewise, if you have an ammeter or voltmeter then equally as good as long as you understand what the readings mean....

    I have the slide-in connectors as mentioned ^^^ and it is easy enough to do without losing settings.

    On the other hand, I remove the battery for my bikes winter lay-up (no power in the shed)....

    I find the rear ABS will come on quite easily when braking firmly. The weight of the machine is thrown onto the front tyre and consequently there is very little weight on the rear. Traction at the...

    +1 on what nevergiveup said. I had to commute through traffic regularly and the snatchy throttle was a pain. Keeping it above 4,000 revs in that situation is impractical. BoosterPlug fixed it for me....

    Probably the road via Brandon and past the gates of Lakenheath. If you were keeping up with a BMW in your Buick then maybe you were the crazier one!

    Some nice biking roads in that area.

    Just a warning: - The GT doesn't "countdown to empty" but counts up from zero from when the low fuel warning first comes on. I can get about 30 miles before the bike stops.

    Welcome to the forum and GT ownership.

    Even if the new ride isn't upright enough there are bar riser and peg lowering kits, so I am sure you will be able to get to where your injury isn't noticed....

    The computer on board draws a tiny current all the time when the bike is 'Off'. Most modern vehicles do now a days. If I didn't ride my bike for a month (does happen), I noticed the starter would be...

    Personally I just ignore it. I do my own servicing and the expense of getting it reset outweighs the distraction (it switches off after a bit anyway).

    Sounds like the service interval wasn't properly reset at 6,200 miles and BMW agent then telling you the annual was due after only 5 months was a nice little earner for them !

    +1 on the creaking noise, my bike does it too. Actually a lot of owners have reported this phenomenon but it depends on whether our "creaking" matches peeetf's "clicking".

    I think you need to switch the ignition off to clear the error flag. Until then it won't send any current to what it still thinks is a blown filament, even though you have changed the bulb. So maybe...
