What's the difference between trip 1 and trip 2? The answer is the same in both cases. Specifically, CONS 1 and 2 describe average consumption since the last time they were reset. I usually reset CONS 1 and the same time I reset Trip 1, CONS2 gets reset with trip 2.

Edit: I really should read to the end of the thread before replying. I see that the question had already been answered and then some.

Not an issue is subjective. I'll keep digging I guess.

I have now covered 6,000 km on my new GS LC, all of it in temperatures over 32 c (90 F) - I drive in Southern Thailand. Open road and traffic I have not encountered any heat being blown onto my leg. The fan comes on rarely as the cooling system requires very little air flow to maintain correct temperature.

I'm looking forward to taking a test ride on the LC. Something I really wish I could have done with the S10.

I'm originally from Townsend, MA. I hope you get a few more months of riding in.

Some nice roads run through Townsend. I pass through it a couple of times a year.

Thank you very much for the feedback. Sounds like this is not an issue on the GSW.

Interestingly enough I've never ridden in New England. Well dirt bikes but never on the road. I left in 1990 and didn't get into street riding until 2007. I've never made the journey back to New England on a bike. Close but not quite there.

Allow me to add my voice to those who say that heat has not been an issue on the GSW. FYI, I happened to ride it through Townsend on 119 just last week.

newbie question

Hey guys, anybody servicing the bike at home?
Any tricks or tips?
Best oils/ coolant if necessary?
Any word on the new interface for GS-911?
Thanks in advance

I've ridden in 103 degrees and I didn't notice any hot spots on the bike. This is something I'm actually concerned about, but BMW got this right on this bike.

Seems a bunch of GSW's are cruising through my home town.

Thanks! It's strange how much this issue is bothering me on my S10. I've just never connected with this bike like I did with my Wee (that sounds a bit strange) .

no wax but Plexus..

LOVE LOVE LOVE that stuff...

BBY has the fluids, but not a full kit yet because there is no aftermarket plugs for it.

The new GS-911 equivalent will be out soon.

There should be a video out in a couple months demonstrating the service processes.
