Rich Oliver was awesome on the 250's!!!

Looks like a great class! You can share some pointers with the rest of us when you get back!

No reason to wait.

Here's what another 29.8 lbs of crap looks like.

All of the crap. That little pump in the lower left corner is the ABS pump. It weighs 11.8 lbs with all of the lines. Under the instrument pod is a huge metal bracket that weighs almost 7 lbs not including the instruments, and who needs instruments anyways.

Rob, I now know how capable you are with the sawzall

Holy Shite, that bike will have a totally different feel. Let's give those 950s some dust to eat!

For the next several weeks, no sweep duty for you, enjoy that baby, meanwhile go get some body armor, you, dr, and luv2race give me chills. Those scars and scabs offer very little protection...

this is not fair dood.......now the gap between us will get bigger! the only advantage i have is "no fear for large moving gray objects"

pix is just part of it, we demand a full ride report , seriously we want to know and i would want to do it as well. of course, pointers will be appreciated.

Sure he will have you going in an hour of easy work. Save a ton of money doing it yourself, or having some FF's help you.

Sat at 3PM we will have a tech day in my garage to do DHR front springs on his XRL. Ben, if you're riding in the morning and have time in the afternoon, tag along.

QS, while I'm working on the springs, for sure DHR and Ben can do the oil change, then I'll see if there's time to do the valve adjustement. I did my GS1200 and KTM 640A valve adjustment myself, and so far the valves haven't flew through the valve cover... Having the 2 FFs there and you will not make my gf asking questions..

The specs from BMW advertise 387 lbs dry. I weighed mine on an industrial shipping scale at a Fedex facility when I bought it. It weighed 389 lbs with a 1/4 full tank.

Along with this nearly 30 lbs that I have removed, I originally removed/replaced another 22lbs.

I would say it weighs around 335-340 dry now.

I took it for a short ride in the neighborhood park yesterday and it does not feel like the same bike anymore.

Still have a lot of finish work to do that I can do later........or never

Might be true, but you're forgetting about the T-shirts.

Thicker, quality t-shirts. Not the ones from Wally Mart.
