Not sure about this bike, but all of my other bikes you just short the two wires going to the switch together.

I would say he's earned that IBA number. I thought I was doing good racking up 12k in 10 months.

Real test...

Now the real tests begin...

Aussies test the new GS WC...



Looks like every rim is soft in Australia...

Wouldn't you be a pot?

Anyway it happens. Big force meets big mass and something has to give.

Woody will still have some work for the foreseeable future.

Laugh Rim shots...

But aren't them thar' super terrific Teutonic ultra-unobtanium wonder rims supposed to be vastly super-superior to them terrible Jap ricer rims on our decidedly inferior, cheap, and downright unsophisticated Yamy-Hay Super Tenner's?

After all, don't those BMW rims cost more than the current GNP of Denmark?

Well the price is probably vastly "superior", but maybe not. Maybe they will end up being mass produced in such quantities they become cheap.
But they seem to crack right about where the spoke sits.

I think maybe D.I.D. had a bit of a think about their rims and tried to mitigate some of the possible problems.

Only problem is they didn't get pluric to test them.

Sorry to jump in between the rim talk. I will need a good sump guard to my soon to be ST. I really want the Rumbux combo but it will cost around/at least AUD$850 with shipping from South Africa. Is the Alt Rider combo ok even if the sump guard is attached to the engine? The alt rider combo is around $900 + domestic shipping here in Australia.
Is the SW-Motech any idea to even think about? It is way cheaper at only AUD$468 plus domestic shipping, maybe there is a reason why it is around half price compared to my other choices?
Lucky I did not pay too much for my ST since all the farkling will cost a bundle but it is nice to give it a personal touch since hopefully it will stay a long time in my stable.
Cheers.
