Blew Out the Headlight

Get the BMW Charger, You Won't Regret it

Just my two cents, but I had a few battery problems with my previous R12GS. I also tried jump starting it and blew out the headlight. Mechanics told me I was lucky there wasn't more damage. I...

Same 07 R12GS - Same Color - Same results

I have the black 07 also. Nowhere near the miles you have, but I love the bike. Took it to a track day last Sunday, loads of fun! No problems with this bike whatsoever.

GS VS RT - Anyone Owned or had Both?

Thinking about switching from 07 R12GS to 08 R12RT. Any advice from someone who has had or ridden both? Will probably make the move this week. Any info appreciated.

Thanks

Mine does too - it's normal

I have had two R12GS's (06 and 07) and they both vibrated above 4000 rpm. I guess it is just the way the bike is, as it is a big twin. I thought getting the 07 I would also get rid of th vibration,...

I agree with Onesaintsfan

I quit coming here because all I ever read is complaining. BMW's are complex to maintain, and have a lot of options/accessories, thus more things to go wrong. If you want a simple bike go with...

Thanks - Info Much Better than the Searches I Did

Great info. I think I'll go with the XD-3. The Shoei seems better in a lot of ways, but I want the sun shade the most.

Arai XD or Shoei Hornet for R12GS

ABS study - longer stops on dry, shorter on wet
