Re: Hello from the California desert!

Hi, welcome!

Looks like a nice project!

Can i just ask, what's the extra guage above the neutral light on your bike and what info is it showing? (Some looks obvious, some not)

[Wanted] Front Mudguard

Does anyone have a spare carbon fibre R1100S front mudguard available to buy?

I had a small incident on my way down to Flash and need a replacement for the Rockster, (same fitment more or less)

Fuel level sensor - How do they work?

On my Rockster I renewed the fuel filter last week as part of a service and since then, the fuel-reserve light has been playing up. Initially it was stuck "on" (ie lit). Even a full tank of fuel didn't change that. But I've now down about 100 miles (commute to the office and back) and duri...

Re: bye bye telelever

The only thing I missed when going from the GS (and R1100S) to the RS was the telelever. I liked the 'neutral' feel and lack of fork dive, but I'm no racer so maybe in more extreme riding it didn't inspire confidence amongst the fast boys. I even liked the separate indicator switches on the 1100S s...

Re: bye bye telelever

Has to be said, Telelever is something I too am loathe to lose. I've ridden a few "normal" bikes in the past few years and without exception I find them "boingy" compared to the Rockster. That said, the R1250RS with Active/Dynamic suspension adjustment is very nice... until you ...

Re: Thin Blue Line, third pullover in one lifetime

A bit annoying Gawaine but sounds like they were just doing a public service by highlighting a couple of minor errors of safety on your part. Thankfully for you they just imparted some observations and let you go on your way :wink: You can't be too unhappy with only 3 pulls by the Lads 'n' Lasses i...

Re: Hood biking jeans.

I've got/tried/ridden in: Hoods (can't remember the model name): Thick heavy denim, Aramid shorts built in, hot as hell on a hot day and far too thick to wear in the office. Good Spring/Autumn jeans. Lindstrands Macan : Oddly cut, very small pockets, not terribly comfy on the bike. Rokker ML Legend:...

Re: Am I missing something

The first one was an obvious crossing of the solid white - that's a direct contravention of a rule. The group of 4 is less obvious, but it's possible it's a known black spot (maybe the bends are blind, hard to tell from directly above), and there's an obvious property entrance at the end of the shor...

Re: Idiot sighting

A mate of mine went into the services and asked for a black coffee, the assistant asked if he wanted milk with it I get that all the time. I think it's more that they are so bored in shit jobs that they aren't really listening to you, and anything that isn't in their list of trained products requir...

Re: The cost of running Boxertrix

Subs paid. Is it worth renewing the domain name for a longer period? The annual cost would then be reduced for that particular cost at least. Also - is it worth looking into a subscription system? Maybe have a 'free' membership level with limited permissions (eg not able to post photos, or something...

Re: Remember Hein Gericke knee pads?

Are they still trading in Germany? I've still got 2 jackets and a pair of trousers and think they're brilliant. I don't think I've ever proofed them and they're still waterproof. Maybe a product of their own success? I think I remember reading somewhere last year that they'd shut down, even in Germ...
