      Hi Jim,

      I just bought my first bmw 15 gsa- love the bike so far and will buy your dvd to learn to do the basics and save service money. I just read that you advised a guy to "get a regular key made" from the one on the fob so that he can open his panniers. I want to do that- where do I go to get a key like that made? Thanks!

      Jim,
      I am an ADVrider moving back into the 22308 neighborhood after a tour abroad. Trying to get my plate to match my alias, like yours. Former vanity license plate is no longer available in VDOT, but"ST-ADV" is. I want to change my ADV alias, but I don't know who / how to contact. Tried the "contact us" link at bottom of page to no avail. Have any advice?

      Hi Jim,
      You might want to re-read my post on the 1300cc GS thread. I am wishing for a lighter, LESS powerful boxer, but still a boxer with the boxer chassis and engine characteristics. And so are many others, based on the subsequent posts. Thanks

        I didn't misread it, I stated that it would never happen. BMW will not be making a smaller boxer. Though some may want it, few would pay big boxer prices for a smaller boxer.

        Sorry, I misunderstood. You wrote that smaller and MORE power wouldn't happen. I am wishing for smaller and less power, and based on the later posts, so are a lot of others.
