Tks for the Report Meursalt!!

2. BMW Canada's response is still "too...

Late to the game . . . but a Bluenoser nonetheless

If anyone is still taking a tally of ADV'ers, add one more. I spend about equal amounts of time on and off road riding '06 DR650, '02 R1150GS, '86 Ninja 1000R.

Any events . . . let me know!

What was the outcome?

Was it the regulator in the end?

Just curious as I may have a dead battery or some other failing component of the electrical system.

Cool2 Darth Peach is "The Stig"!!!

Haven't read the whole thread, so it's likely been noted by other more clever inmates, but I'm pretty sure Darth Peach is "The Stig"!!

And on a serious note, sorry for your loss.

Too bad about Doug's bike. As a rider of a DR 650 I have a built in bias against the KLR, but obviously still feel for the guy. The BMW fuel economy is almost unbelievable and making it look quite...
