Re: northern spain... Picos

So after all our intentions of doing a Balkan trip this year and re visiting Croatia, we bottled it, well actually Amanda did, on researching she said too cold when we were to be going, so sadly it`s back to Spain and Portugal. Oh dear , how sad, never mind. Having to ride down cos of late booking. ...

Re: Who changes their own tyres?

I No silly wheelrim weights that fcuck with your paint. (They are irrelevant anyway on a bike) . I've changed my own tyres for decades ( mainly because I like to do other maintenance at the same time) but I disagree with the above , I've had bikes that are almost unrideable at speed cured with bala...

Who changes their own tyres?

I do. Reasons are as follows, It works out less expensive. You can do them at home. No hanging about. Freedom of choice to take advantage of pair bargains. other maintenance can be carried out while wheel is off. No silly wheelrim weights that fcuck with your paint. (They are irrelevant anyway on a ...

Re: Tips on How to ride a R1100S

I think they are all politely suggesting that you ride the fcuker like you stole it. :wink: My advice would be to do a couple of track days on it. A BMW dealership would have pointed out anything glaringly wrong with set up. surely? We need to build confidence here I am thinking, they are a big fat ...

Re: Ilmberger hugger flew off :(

Nope, my original plan was to repair it and left it in the garage. Decided not to put it back or repair / replace it. That reminds me I need to get some original caliper bolts and replace the Pyramid bolts, oh and take the hugger to the tip! loose fixings caused the fail? My cf Pyramid bcr hugger f...

Re: Ilmberger hugger flew off :(

My Pyramid hugger failed spectacularly on my 1100S and jammed itself in the back wheel. Luckily at low speed, so the ensuing locked rear wheel was dealt with without issue. It hangs in my garage and I wouldn't ever think of replacing it. Bloody dangerous. Obviously of sentimental value to you then....

Re: Reivers Ride 2018 # Route added#

My and Sue's thanks also to Chris and Amanda for a great weekend. Excellent route, great roads. It was good to catch up with Trixsters old and new, and the Capon Tree restaurant was a real find. Best wishes to Ian for speedy recovery. Would have posted earlier but just back from West Coast tour wit...

Re: Rough running R12S

Update, all is not 100% well just yet. So, the problem originally started with the idling not feeling 100% correct, a bit lumpy, after which it started stalling while hot in traffic. Changing the lower left coil seemed to resolve the problem but after a week it started to behaving odd again, someti...

Re: Ilmberger hugger flew off :(

Has it ever happened to anyone else, I'm sure it did it unaided by any foreign object on the road because I didn't see anything in front of me and couldn't find anything afterwards either, just metal fatigue I reckon ? I must have had mine on the bike for 14 odd years now and 100k miles, admittedly...

Re: Ilmberger hugger flew off :(

At the end of the day it is only a crud catcher. GRP any day for me. Cost effective. The weight saving element of cf is totally irrelevant on a boxer tractor. if you can afford CF mudguards you are earning/making your money too easily, if you are prepared to buy another .... :?

Re: Hello

Hi, Remember me? Just checking in. Sold my 1200s last year and bought a KTM which was a pile of crap. Sold it last night, now in the market for a speed triple. I like to drop in here now and again, as this is still my favourite forum. Hope everyone is ok! Jim. I`m fine thanks Jim. I was amused at y...
