I started this thread 6 years ago almost to the day and it now has 31,500 views and still going. I didn't realise that this was such an on going problem.
I've moved on, not everyone else has. Unfortunately that 1150 is sold, still have the Ducati, looking at a new 1200 this year I think
2013 BMW R1200 GS Adventure - Tripple Black
2005 BMW R1150GS Adventure - Gone
2009 Ducati 1100 Multistrada
I just do what the voices tell me
