Pissed (Un)Happy Trails

Has anyone had recent dealings with HT? I bought a rack set and exhaust lowering kit for my 1150GSA... I got stuff that looked like it was made by a 16 yr old in metal shop class the first week,...

BMW R1150GS Adventure

Do your racks/bags fit on the Adventure with the 1 piece 'seadoo' seat, along with the top box? Is there a rack or brace for the notoriously weak rear tail? I see all kinds of cool things from your...

Replace front wheel bearings - R1150GS

OK, I've googled myself cross-eyed, and can't find anything definitive... maybe my google-foo is broken.

Buy it, ride it up to my house, I'll trade you the R1150GS for it. And the GS has a brand new set of Karoo 3s on it.

Really, if the final drive scares you, buy a used one to keep on the side.

The old starter seems to be an initial 'consumable' for these older bikes. Also, check your alternator belt. That's another, since it's under the cover, that will get you stuck on a long commute.
