Got my bike back from the dealer yesterday. They couldn't do anything with the noise, but I am supposedly now on the list for the new camshafts that are in development. No ETA from BMW on delivery...

I've ridden about 5000km with Siskiyou panniers on my F800GS, and while it's a bit annoying to have to undo one side and flip the bag up when you gas up, I don't find it to be that bad. If anything,...

There is an XR650L posted for 2700 on Vancouver CL right now. Could be a scam.
