    There are a lot of nice little bikes out there now. If you have not drank the BMW punch don't forget the old faithfuls... Kawasaki KLR and the Suzuki VStrom. They are priced right.

    I hope he doesn't buy one. He doesn't like anything about it. Forgiving?

    Lets just say that despite his opinions these small BMWs are good bikes and will be a sales leader.

    It wasn't a speedo reading. That was 103 mph on official IOM TT timing.

    Here is another article, this time from Cycle World. I still say that India and then other countries in the Far East will be the place where the baby BMWs will take off. Just saw an article by someone (Kevin Cameron?) in a recent Cycle World mag I have.

    Well, that puts the speed beyond question accurate. A very good effort with modest power.

    I had my 600 mile check on my G310GS. All is well. $200. I takes only 2 quarts of the $18.29 a quart BMW oil and $15.99 filter. 1.2 hours of labor for a bargain $126. I will do the service from now on. I like them to do the first one in case something goes wrong in the next 12000 miles.

    I need to wire up my GPS and radar detector to a switched line. It takes 22 screws to get either side cover off as they come off together. They are both screwed to the center cover from the bottom. All but one are the same size however. It just takes a lot of screwing. I enjoy screwing.

    I found a hot switched wire under the seat on a relay. I am going to start checking headlight wires. The other BMWs all have a plug for the BMW GPS in the front of the tank. Not this one. I am still searching. Any ideas?

    Speaking of motorcycles imported from India, like the BMW G-series, apparently our President, according to this article and its reference, has it in for India imports, including Royal Enfield of all things (BMW is not mentioned), and is considering imposing tariffs on Indian imports and the "thousands and thousands of imported motorcycles" that are dumped into the U.S. without paying an import tax. Give me a break!: :rolleyes:

    This year, Kawasaki will offer me a 400cc machine for the same price as last years 300cc model. What did H-D offer me? A rally for Mr. Tariff.
    IMHO, HD is going to be the death of motorcycling in the US. As for Mr. Tariff, he needs to just focus on his Adult-film Star Prayer Breakfasts and leave governing the country to the pre-dementia adults.
