    I've got 30,000 more miles on mine and it still runs like new. If anyone is thinking the miles means it is worn out, think again. I'd say it is just entering the best phase of its life.

    Good...

    I'll be honest and say I haven't tried to digest all the technicalities of this thread, but Dan's last post reminded me of something. I let my auxiliary generator sit with gas in it for a couple...

    Which bag do you have, Adrian? I have the Givi XS308. Unfortunately, Givi no longer sells it. I'd buy another in a heartbeat. It's the perfect size for what I want.

    Not really. I did a couple very long test rides on the R1200RS and liked it much better than the R1200RT I also rode. To me, the RS was like a larger F800GT. I didn't find the handling, or usable...
