As long as you're happy, it's the right decision. Personally, my bike came with ESA packaged with other items I wanted but, like you, I really don't adjust it. Will it add to the resale value? Not...

Just bought two new Conti Trail Attack 2's. $339. at the local BMW dealer plus $107 to have them mounted (after a $95 discount, I guess for purchasing them at the dealer!).

The BRP is a great ride. For some reason both times I rode (from North to South), when we hit North Carolina it was cold! Probably because it's 5500 feet elevation (or something like that). Just...

The short answer is, you're overfilling the tank. Just fill to the bottom of the filler neck (while on the centerstand) and you'll be fine. Besides, you probably get more mileage per tank than any...

My 2009 12GS has a 5.3 gal tank but, like others have stated, there is a "reserve" of 1.1 gal or so. All this means is the bike will tell you your out of gas when you have about 1.1 gal left.
