    Ditto what Andrew says above. The 800 engine requires a higher RPM for optimal operation. In my experience (almost 10 years) if you are riding below 4,000 rpm the engine is lugging a bit.

    Another point: your phone GPS is more accurate that a regular GPS, whether it is built-into an auto/motorcycle dashboard or stuck to your windshield with a suction cup. Why? Because your phone's GPS...

    Another vote for the manufacturer's recommended setting: 36 front, 42 rear.

    I have evolved, over the years, to prefer slightly harder tires and thus I add 2-3 PSI to each tire. BUT (big butt)...

    The ST did not have, or offer from BMW, a cruise control of any type. I don't know what you might be looking at. The bike has large-ish black bar end weights but I don't believe you could mistake...
