Re: My Laminar Lip blew off!

Another suggestion...With the BMW touring shield I get good results with the Wunderlich air deflector....very adjustable , and can be folded down out of the way when the temp climbs in traffic.

Re: RIP ABS 2002 R1150R

Hard to imagine a company like BMW ever letting that noise make it through final production. I'm sure they could have changed design to eliminate it.

Re: All of you have been an amazing support! Thanks.

I want to know where they found a BMW that sounds like the one in the movie? :-k

Re: GS wheels on a Rockster.

Over on the 'Roadster' forum there is a member attempting to fit 'GS' hubs, and lace the proper size rims to them. She hasn't posted in a while though.
