Followup question ... if a photo is uploaded to the ubb gallery (I think we are using imagemagick) can you then link the photo out of the gallery back to a new non-gallery post?...

I just sold a Super Duke GT in February. It’s not just a Super Duke R with bags. It has a lot of issues with the ESA dynamic suspension. I really ended up hating it. Just never felt comfortable on rough roads. I never had full confidence in the machine. Yes it has gobs of po...

Like a sofa huh! Somewhere along the line I got old and soft, so I appreciate the comfort. The only thing that is not a plus, in the heat, is that big ol' fairing keeping the wind off. I found that if I hold the very end of the left bar, my jacket cuff is in a sweet spot wind-...

Yep, I was just testing the veracity of the ubb documentation Do you know of any plans or "hidden" features of ubb.threads that will overcome this issue ?...

Paul De: I do mostly get my gas at a Sunoco a couple of blocks away from home as it is convenient. Otherwise, when on the road, I prefer BP or Shell. Update by the dealer: RPM1 will cover this repair when the valve fails/error code is generated....

Ok, I took the Beemer up on the interstate for the first time today, and realized what this bike is made for! It's a dream at highway speeds (well, maybe plus a little extra) and makes me want to keep going. Too bad it's hotter than the surface of the sun here on I-4! I only wen...

I do disagree with you reg26 I have got the Nav V on my 2014 RT and there are just few occasions where I can't see the display enough to make out what it is showing. And it doesn't get any sunnier then here in Australia. The unit works really well, so I am not sure what stinks on...

Some will disagree with me but even if the Nav VI had no extra features it would have been worth it just for the ease of seeing the screen in direct sunlight alone. The Nav V stunk in my opinion. My Zumo 550 was better...

I looked at the R model with him yesterday (no S versions available nearby), and I agree on the sizing--you need to be tall to make it work. I could flatfoot the bike, but that's about it. It's not actually much different than my RT with the Russell saddle in that respect. Any...

170+ HP. bunch of videos wheeling in 4 gears. Their motors are from another planet. I rode a 1290R about a year ago, it took about 2 seconds for all the "anti-stupid" control lights to come on the dashboard. Amazing motors....
