I bought mine in winter - no test riding (or any riding) for at least 5 months of the year.
I sat on the bike in the riding position (centre stand) and then when flat footed, jostled the bike...
I'd imagine dealerships (especially smaller operations) are tired of the test rides returning on a flatbed. Lots of risk to the seller. And too many people who overestimate their skill.
John, please update this thread with your results. I'm curious about the oxygen sensor. (Not now but in the future.) Your findings regarding the brake rotor probably will interest a few users as...
I change the brake fluid annually and so decided on upgrading the bleeder valve. With this system, because only the upper part of the valve is detached, the calliper is no longer subject to wear.
My opinion is that brake fluid is cheap and my time is free. An ABS pump that needs replacing.... yikes.
I had a chat with my daughter who is studying philosophy and communications in University. I feel there is a field of study and career sorting out behaviors amongst large groups of people and how to...
Regrettably, good sense is in short supply and anything but common. So short in supply that we now need rules to regulate behavior.

LOL. Should have guessed that!
I didn't have luck on eBay or bolt/nut sellers. I bought some from a dealer - maybe $2 each?
Could also attend a BMW rally with a screw driver in hand. [evil...
You have a battery cover? Learn something new every day!
A previous owner must have done away with mine.
Thank you for your efforts in these times. I appreciate that you are subject to risks while helping others. As the saying goes "you are working so the rest of us can stay home."
Thank you for...
I think you need a minimum number of posts prior to the system allowing pictures. (Might be 5 posts?)
Sounds like a well maintained motorcycle.
I like your willingness to hold the bike for a...
Kudos to the business owner who demonstrated social responsibility. That's an outstanding example.
When people are playing loose with the rules it actually puts all our civil liberties in jeopardy Ś it makes government have to look at more and more stringent measures to actually contain people in...
The situation is pretty straight forward.
The virus travels via people.
Any movement of people = continued transmission
Welcome! Enjoy your new motorcycle and all the new experiences it will bring.
Also, very jealous!
"The item is no longer available."
I'm assuming it's sold?
Smart choice, in my opinion. As soon as you wrote about highways and two-up riding, I was wondering why the 300's. (Yes, it's possible - I owned a 300 for about a year. it. But.... possible doesn't...
It's a quiet one here. Bars and pubs are closed, non-essential movements and non-essential gatherings are strongly discouraged - the virus travels via people so the priority is to stay put.
We should all strive for the 'pommel horse'.
Excellent design work and execution. Congratulations on the results.

I hope this lady is in sales. Brilliant.
Nicely researched. Thanks for sharing.
What an unusual item to steal!
If you haven't already, a good wash to remove any fluid that may have splashed onto the surface of the bike is...
You'll probably come up against privacy laws which restrict how much information you will have access too.
In my neck of the woods, there are services to confirm if currently registered, accident...
