I like the look of the Remus but I got a great deal on the akro so I couldn’t pass it up.
Functionally, they are nearly the same. My Remus came with a homologation certificate that qualifies the slip-on as a legal replacement part in the EU. Thus, it isn’t terribly loud and doesn’t interfere with mandated requirements. Both the Remus and the Akra look a great deal better than the stock silencer.
I you go to this there is a lot of info and pitches on making a relocation GPS mount I mad mine and works fine and dose not inter fear with screen operation
Where did you get the akro? I've been looking for a titanium-colored can for the 2020.
Check Evil-bay or your dealer for Akrapovic slip-on...
Bought it from a user on the RS forum.
Just posted a tinted MRA touring screen in the flea market if anyone is looking.
A shady spot for a snack and something to drink. My ‘16 has acquitted itself brilliantly...
Natchitoches Parish, LA.
I just finished an extended tour to the Northern Rockies. In 5400 miles, the only thing my R12RS needed was a battery in the "key." This year I added the BMW topcase and my fuel mileage improved from 47 to 48 mpg. The lower Sargent rider's saddle with an Alaska Leather Buttpad was very good (eliminated numbness in my nethers) and the Dainese New Drake Air pants were a revelation. The pants were very versatile and comfortable over a wide range of temperatures. The hip pads wadded up a bit (I'll be removing them) and suspenders keep them in place better, but I wore them in temperatures from 43 to 108F. The Firstgear Winter Base Layer gear was incredible once more when it got cold.
My longest day was 637 miles in 10 hours. Average daily mileage was 491. I hit a little rain, but it was always so light, that I didn't even don my rainsuit. The RS is an incredibly competent tourer. It munches miles without a bit of trouble and really shines in the twisty bits.
I'm already thinking about a Fall trip...
Looks like a great trip! Just did a long weekend in Norcal on my same color RS. Love this bike! Does everything I need, better than I need it to.
Just completing the 20000 mile/ 30000 kms service and a requirement to change the fork oil
Who has done it at home or are you taking the bike in to your Motorrd dealer or suspension specialist
Have seen quite a generic youtube videos but non specific to the R12xxR /RS
There is also a good thread on the R1200R forum with a full write up and photos which I will use if i decide to go forward.
I'll be following that guide when it comes time in a year or so...
Which Alaska sheep skin do you have on your bike? I had one on my GS and liked it, but unsure which one would be appropriate for my RS. I like the looks of yours crawling up the tank.
Which seat is that n your picture?
Looks to be Corbin.
Indeed, and it's really good.
It is the medium sheared in black.
My sweet wife gave me a really great Christmas present: a carbon fiber front fender for my ‘16 RS. Remarkably lighter and stiffer, it also looks great. It required some 7x2 o-rings to mount, as the c-f is thinner than the plastic stocker. Looks great with the Remus carbon slip-on...
