BMW manual

So I bought a Pdf version of the factory BMW service manual when I bought my R1100RT. It is cool that it covers all 1100 models like the S, R, RS, RT, and GS...man does this manual suck as general rule.

It is SO vague and there are no pictures, just really lame drawings.

What manual do you folks reccomend? Haynes, Clymer, other?

I love the places where it says things like " unbolt and remove..., reverse process to install..." sometimes there are some very odd fasteners, or tricky way to get the part out...but no...just "remove".
sucks.

When you reccomend a manual, keep in mind that my bike is currently an RT, but is now stripped to basic chassis and being built up as a GS modified.
