Thanks for the heads up. I'll keep an eye on it. 13/50 is about the same as 14/54 so I can see how 14/52 is a good compromise. I'll have to try it.

Anyone wanna buy a F800GS? You'll look really great standing up on it while you ride to get coffee. Plus you'll be able to brag about how you conquered the nasty class IV roads that would thwart a lesser man/machine.

I'd have to go for the 1200. That way I might be able to build up skills to the level of this guy:

It doesnt upset me that you re selling it. I didnt design it and I dont own BMW. Its just a bike. I was just curious why you were selling it. Im happy with mine and with Max BMW.

How'd you do at JDay?
