lower gears

Thanks all for the feedback. That's consistent with what I heard from the dealer. I think it won't be that useful to me in most of my day-to-day riding, so I will probably skip it for now.

I don't remember now what BMW recommended for my 2005 R1200GS, but on the 2014 wethead, the manual recommends 36.3 psi (2.5 bar) for the front and 42.1 psi (2.9 bar) for the rear.

Awesome! I have the r3, and I wonder how much different the new version is. I've been leery about riding it with the new GS LC. Is the new one any more forgiving for big pigs (and wusses like me)?
