Re: R1200/1250RS

Yes, but the popularity of the GS also means that residual values hold up better than most. If you are buying second hand, I strongly suspect that you will get a more bike for your buck on an RS than a GS for the same money, and if you are not planning on going off road, the RS will do everything th...

Re: R1200/1250RS

I owned an R1200RS which I put 24k miles on and I swapped that out for a new R1250GS 12 months ago, which has about 11k miles to date. I would echo Chris's comments about the R12R, which is essentially an un-faired version of the RS. Brimmed with petrol, I would see a range of about 200 miles on the...

Good to hear that you are regaining your biking mojo, Peter. Would be great to see you in Wales for our weekend in May.

All the best,

Re: You Tube and the Transformation of an R9t

Undoubtedly clever folks fabricating the bike, but not an end result that is easy on my tired old eyes.

On the subject of YouTube entertainment, here is the latest bike video from Danny MacAskill, which is well worth a watch.

Cheers,

Re: PCP / aftermarket parts

There's usually a good market for second hand bike bits though. Just think of the excitement a used "Lennies InDuct" used to generate on here.

Re: 3 wheeler

Kudos to the guy that designed and created it for his unique vision and excellent fabrication skills. Nice to look at, as a very well executed curiosity, but personally I have no desire to ride or own anything like that. I wish I had half the design and build skills of the guy that created it though...

Re: So gullible.

Glad to hear you had a good time in the end. Funnily enough, we stayed in a hotel in Chinatown last year, and lived to tell the tale.

Someone on here? That'd be me then :wink: Prices in the city centre are indeed eye watering and beware of being "upsold" by waiters. When I went with two mates last year, we ordered our mains and the waiter asked if we'd like a little ham and cheese to nibble on before dinner? Having agree...

Re: Lower fork mounted driving lights

I've not seen these fitted to an R1100S before, but there are multiple systems available for the various flavours of GS which you might be able to adapt? Normally they fit a mounting bar directly to the frame of the bike, below the headstock, to hang the lights off. That would be more secure than at...
