Excellent Ride & Thank You

Dave, What an amazing journey you have embarked upon! I've read a few ride reports over the past couple years and yours is at the top. Last year, there was a husband and wife duo from Guatemala who...

Thanks for the info. The guy wrote back to me today and said he'd put 1,600 miles on it in the last year and a half. No problems or leaks. He's the third owner, which is kind of a bummer. I've asked...

Of the many vintage BMW airheads out there, which are more sought after compared to the R100/7 ? I'm looking for something to wrench and ride locally. Again, thanks for your input.

Advice on buying a 1978 R100/7

I found a 1978 R100/7 with 25,000 miles for sale. I'm asking for advice on what specifically to look for on this bike. It appears to be in very good shape in pictures. I have a 400 mile drive to look...

Roadscum,

You are one tough guy riding in 113. The hottest weather I've ridden in is upper 90's with some humidity. I thought it was like riding in a furnace. That was on my '01 1150GS. Of course,...

Heat on the F800GT

Fellas,

I road a couple hundred miles in 90-94 F with 90%+ humidity last week. Yep, there is a little heat coming off the left side between my knee and main zipper. So, I rode with my left leg...

I like the sound of this 800GT (and most machines that burn gas). I wonder what the aftermarket pipe sounds like? Vibration on the GT. During my first 500 or so miles, I thought it was a little buzzy...

F800GT or Interceptor?

I looked at an Interceptor last year. It looks like a mighty fine machine. Perhaps a little more sport than tourer. Bang for buck compared to the F800GT? Time will tell. After sitting on both...

Congrats on your purchase. Yes, there is a little bit of engine heat blast. I think it's more noticeable on the left side. But, it's not too bad. I think it handles well, too. Thanks for pointing out...

New 2013 BMW F800GT In My Garage

I've had my 2013 F800GT since June 7th. Due to a busy work schedule, I've only put on about 1,400 miles so far. Before buying, I read a lot of the reviews on-line. I think they are accurate with...

Dave,
Congrats on sending your Harley friends a strong message: there are other great bikes in the world. In my territory, eastern SD, that GS was one of a kind. Have fun turning heads. However,...

Thanks

I considered an RT for a while. They are a nice ride. I test road one two years ago. I really like BMW. But, an FJR1300 is a good value.

$99 Pants

No offense, but after looking at a lot of gear over the last few years, I suggest saving up for higher end pants. $99 doesn't buy much protection, if that's what you're after.
