From my trip to the US last year I noticed you are very into the "roots" thing

I have visited Castricum aan zee alot, both for the beach (of course) as well as nice driving behind the dunes.

I do that on purpose by giving a tiny bit of gas when decelerating

But indeed, the MM does backfire more out of the box than a previous r1150r I owned. So it must be character.

Hello Hollander ,
I think I remember this issue being discussed in this thread (somewhere between page 1 and 141 page I believe ;).

I did googled it to find it out (no succes) but did stompeled upon a very own HPN-tank thread you might be interested in:
BikesGSpotOilhead BoxersHp2 TT or HPN tank?

BTW may I ask why you are considering the rebuild (sachs madass) of the front?

072 and shit happens

hi guys, been a while since last post, but the mm is still going strong. with the last service i fitted "short gas throttle" from m-tec. in stead of regripping the throttle, you can go from 0 to full throttle in one movement. i like it a lot though a bit expensive, relative, for just 3 grams of plastic..

for macroenie and hawideri, maybe we can do a ride together. should be fun.

the shit thing as in the tittle happened today, i could bent my head just in time to avoid the complete package and still see where i was going.






in about 12 days i'm going for a tour doing some "best 10 roads in the world for bikes to drive" according a bike magazine over here. i will do 2 of them, both in spain and drive on my way "the best public race road" in the cevennen, france, also according this magazine. well we will see, roads in spain are super so it will be a good trip anyway.
videos will be made.

i did not fit the large tank and will not in the future, i do easily 200km+ on a tank and that is sufficient. tankstations enough, so except for the discomfort of more stops to fuel the thing up, there are no downsides for the smaller tank were i live. on the other side, with the standard tank its way better looking.

hmmm, I should have paid more attention to what I read , you are right. I mixed up the rapidbike system with the powercommander. BTW is there a difference between these systems that made you choice the rapidbike system? Momentairly I invest in new gear rather then upgrading the bike, but it is nice to know the possibilities for, who know's, maybe next year...

And about that joined tour: let see if other people would like to meet up , but if not, we work/live rather close and it would be cool to compare your mods with the stock version!

you beat me to it I have that thing lying in the drawer for like a month or so. From the instructions it looks like an easy install so Ill have look tomorrow.

Sure thing! That would be great. After 16/4 I will not be available for a few weeks so maybe in May?

Same here, when I ride normal Im hitting 1l to 20km, but then again normal mostly equals boring and the harder you ride it the better she gets

No not really, it was suggested to me by the shop owner. I dont think there is much difference although people say the RB has got a faster cpu. I had a rapid bike before on my previous k1200r which did a good job. Powercommander 3 looks a bit larger also.

Sure, we can compare, no problem. The next thing Im getting done is getting other camshafts installed at Edelweiss Motorsport in Essen - Germany. That will be in May the way things look now but maybe sooner. We are trying to set a date. Its a 3 hour ride from my place and install + reprogramming of the RB can be done in one day.

So the results from today are not that dramatic regarding any gains in hp or torque but what is more important is the way the MM is behaving on the road. Mark did 11 runs in total where on the last few he played around a little but then fell back to run 9 as this gave the best overall torque gain (see below).
The rapid bike is now operating in a learn mode so it will store data over time and Mark said that I should come back after Ive done some everyday riding and then he can see if any more adjustments are needed.
He also expect better fuel economy so well see. With gasprizes of today the RB will earn itself back quickly

I took a detour when everything was finished, right from the getaway I could feel the change as the bike is not jerky at low revs anymore. It is pulling smoothly through the revs and it seems to vibrate even less but what I like most is the absence of any jerkiness whatsoever. So is that worth 750EUR?...as Im planning to keep the bike for...a long time...I do think so as Im less frustrated how the bike behaves.

Anyway...the results:

Cool2 Rukka suit

Wow. This suit is a very well match with the bike, also nicely illustrated in your recent video post.
Sadly, I don't fit the rukka and BMW gear: I am to long and lean.

I am aiming at the Stadler gear, they have a new suit, the force pro (same as the track pro, but the leather parts are superfabric). This suit was presented during the motorbeurs [bike confention], but is not in their current foldermaterial.
Stadler has a very big range of different sizes and if you don't fit one of them, it can be custum fitted as well! The Cool feature is that you can choice the colours you want...although for this suit it will be mostly black with a accent colour.
I will post a pic as soon the long wait is over...

Rukka also has got long versions which are 7cm longer than the size you buy, so for instance size 54 + 7cm.
But if your are lean than I guess they will not fit you correctly, I also like a suit that is "slim fit". The Rukka is medium slim fit so not too bad.

Rukka size

Long sizes for rukka trousers that is? The thing is, I need extra armlength on almost all clothing, typically about 4 cm. Most clothing brands do provide trousers in long versions, but somehow that is not done for the jackets.

My current gear is lose fitted, meaning that the protection is sure to be in the wrong place when you need it the most
And I can wait to have a really watertight trousers.
My current one is guaranteed to get you wet. And that stops being funny rather soon

FINALLY!!!

I had my new Michelins installed today. I had to ride all the way across town on a rear tire with the threads showing. That's not the bad part. The bad part was the 40mph cross wind (then head wind on the way home!!!). Yeesh! I'm home now and my MM has new shoes on. I can't wait until next week. I'm either riding up to Zion National Park or through Death Valley. Not sure yet. But it's going to be fun!!!
