    So I went back to BMW GSA

    I sold the S10 after 20,000 miles in 11 months and went back to BMW. I liked the yamaha but as always when I try a new make or model I say the same thing, " Its a nice bike but still does not feel like the BMW". I love the reliabilty of Yamaha and dealer network but it does not have the...

    BMW Anonmous Book Just an idea.

    Just an idea and not sure how to put this together but !. Bmw owners group has this great book that list thousands of BMW owners that are willing to help in one way or another all over the country. I have a feeling this was done because the dealer net work is so small. We do not have this...

    dumb ? Missing rear spoke, safe to ride ?

    As I rolled the bike out for pre ride inspection I noticed a spoke had come loose. It was attached at the rim but fell out of the hub. It damaged the rim and removed a nice chunk of metal out of my swingarm . The reason I am pissed is I check my spokes all the time. I have owned many BMW GSA's...

    600 miles service 4.5 qts of oil WTF

    Took the bike to local dealer for 600 mile service. Looked at the bill and I was charged for 5 qts of oil. This raised a red flag, as we know the bike holds 3.59 qts with oil filter. So I asked the question we would all ask, why? The service manager asked the tech what was the deal and why so...

    Video Library of mods or maintenance

    I find watching someone do something in a video to be most helpful. Something as easy as removing a back rim to change a tire can be odd the first time. I know making a video might be a pain in the Ars but you will feel the love when it helps people out. I would pay 5.00 or so to see something...
