When I lived in Heerlen, NL I saw a lot more BMW motorcycles on the road.

PS. As a kid I often camped out at San Lanaco (Lanaken) and Op Grimbie In Belgium. Good Times.

Keep in mind that Rotella T6 5W/40 is stamped with the JASO MA approval for use with wet clutches. While this is not the MA2 spec, it remains to be seen if Rotella T6 will be suitable for the GSW.

You sure? Most internet service providers (I am assuming you have one) offer some web server space at no additional charge. Maybe you've already investigated that, but if not check it out.
