Yes I agree, my oil change intervals are 5k also. I am going to look for a cheaper source for filters I think

This is good news for sure.
Just need to disconnect the speedo and take your GPS, as I believe Auto PAC will monitor mileage as a condition of the plate.
It won't be long before a bike plate will be available.

Hmm... if the bike was headed west on Hwy 1, it would've had ROW at the intersection. It's tough to tell from the picture but it looks like there's a dent in the van just behind the drivers' door.

I order my filters and crush washers for the RT from Beemerboneyard. com
Get a case of 6 for less than the price of one at the local BMW dealer here...

On another note, have decided to forgo a getting an ST, and to get another RT.
Was out at the shop today working on Whyswomans bike, and had a chance to see all the BMW spares and tools I've invested in.
And... I love the RT.
Cheers, Brian

Good choice Brian, the RT is the bike for you, just need to change your riding habitts, less winter travel.

Skidplate woes...

Looks like I've wrecked the skidplate on the KLR - motor is fine, though. Anyone here have have a favourite aftermarket replacement?

They don't seem to have much listed on their new site yet, I'll give them a call and see what they've got.

No, you don't get off that easily, we want the gory details of how you did it.
With pictures of course!

Their old site lists two skid-plates.. (Of course the prices will have changed.)

Pretty sure I saw some when we were in there in April. Yes give them a call or manufacture your own out of an old steel grain shovel..
