Fuel treatments

Caliper Rebuild

I too am looking at rebuilding my front calipers on my '03 R1200 CLC BMW. The dealer wants $230.00 for two kits. This

Laugh What to ride?

Depends on your priorites. I like comfort and reliable. I've got a K75 and
a BMW R1200CLC. Its hard to beat the K75 for reliable and economy. The
Wing or the CLC would be more comfortable.:D
