When you remove the liner the airflow is great. Pop the liner in and it's a winter riding jacket.

Baby got Back.

Well, I took my first ride tonight since my accident last July 2nd. I spent a total of 3 weeks in the hospital last summer, and I am still sore. Bike was in storage all winter. I am unsure, but I think I need nice weather to reprogram my brain. Picked up my R from 12k service, and I must admit I was...

is it the original battery? Do you have an ABS model? A 4 year old battery will get flaky, especially on the ABS models. My battery is toast after 3 years I think. spoke to a dealer mechanic and was advised that there are goofy things that can happen with a unstable battery. especially on ABS models...

I got a "first 5 payments made by BMW" deal on my R1150R, so I financed the cases. They are WORTH it.

Waterproof and secure. I can park my bike anywhere and secure all my electronics.

That Clack sound is very familiar to me, it happens if I kill my battery.

How did you charge the battery before storage?
The bike's clock will drain a sitting battery.
The juice needed to crank it over is much more than the lights need.
