Gsw tricks

I remember that on earlier GS 1200, from 2004 through 2013, there were some tricks such as turning headlights off with the engine running. As I haven't read anything about tricks on the GSW/GSAW series I thought of starting this thread with hopes that mates will teach us what they have learned.

To start, my own contribution to this topic:

PARKING LIGHTS:

Immediately after switching the ignition's key off, push and keep pushed the left turn signal switch. After a few seconds the parking lights (the front "C" and back lights) will come on at a reduced intensity. To switch the lights off just turn the ignition key on and then off.

Paying for them. That's a trick!

MotoJim;

I meant tricks for the GS not BMW in general...
