    IMHO, all that hassle and cost for one litre more is not worth it.

    Actually, I believe it's a 16 litre tank, so I would've had 1 litre left. which coincides with the usual 300 ish km range given average driving.

    SincÚ the computer was saying 5L/100 I was sure I could get to 300km.
    In the end I refuelled at 280kms,...

    This point is that this bike is a great all-rounder with a decent servicing interval. You can 'get away with' just this bike and it'll do everything in a very dignified way. I do about 15000kms a...

    Keeping to the permitted BMW leasing Schedule, I did the first service.
    240.51Ç which included fitting time for the handlebar risers.
    They make a difference and although not full touring, they...

    I answered the question in my post. It's the GIVI top mount for the GIVI V47 topbox . You just screw it on. No alterations to the original. Yes, it's expensive but I'd bought it already for the...

    I did a small tour from near Barcelona into the lower Pyrenees staying near the French border and venturing over it along a 'built for bikers' country road. Just over 100miles / 170 to the...

    Yep, compromise is the key Word. And for any all-rounder it will always be the the Word that describes it best.

    I've just started a thread with gripes. The confort one is the main one. I think it's something that may be difficult to solve just because of one's physical shape. Right now, I'm at the stage of...
  18. GT Experience - I've only come back on here to gripe

    I've now done 4300kms of mostly commute riding - dual-carriageway, ring roads and city with the odd short country trip.

    In general it's a good package as a 'proper bike for commuting' as it has...

    I've always been anti-Harley but I decided to get one and had it for 4 months until I sold it recently. The XR1200X. Excellent bike. Shakes A LOT at idle. Very torquey, great pull, handles really...

    Wrong. I AM the target market for this bike and I tried this bike with the intention of buying it. I was willing to be very forgiving, but it's the biggest let-down in biking history. People don't...

    As I've already said, please please try one before buying. In town they are crap as well. The riding position is very uncomfortable and the engine is jerky and gutless.

    The problem with the fairing on the V7 is that you have to also buy and fit the clip-ons. AND, the Price really is far too expensive.
    Too uncomfortable for me. The 6 gears would give more...

    No it's not. The smiley face shows 'gente ribbing' and manly jibing and banter. It's begging for a riposte. Hope we're not getting too PC on here. Something that has never reached Spain :rolleyes:...
