    Pristine 1996 BMW R1100rt. Excellent condition with 29,800 miles. Cosmedicaly almost perfect. Mechanically perfect, runs excellently. If you're serious about buying one of these bikes you really need to see this one, you will not be disappointed.I am the second owner. The original owner sold it when he felt he was too old to ride safely. I bought the bike after it had sat two years in his garage.I'd love to keep this bike, but I already have 5 and I'm out of room.The original owner kept impeccable maintenance records of this bike and most, if not all maintenance was performed by autherized BMW Dealerships and noted in the maintenance log with the dealer's stamp.Since purchasing the bike I have replaced the fuel pump, fuel filter and all hoses in side the tank with appropriate submergable fuel line. New alternator belt. New braided stainless steel brake lines front and back, and a new battery.The brake system has been flushed and bled to include the ABS system that works perfectly. Oil and filter have been changed as has the air filter. Transmission and Final Drive oil has been changed as well.Bike has an after-market Aero-Flo wind screen and a throttle lock for long rides.Side cases and trunk, keyed for this bike.This bike is ready to go any place.Comes with then original Owner's Manual, Service Record Manual, BMW Tool Kit, and 2 keys.I have a clean and notarized Arizona Title in my name..Take a look at the pics, they will give you a good idea of the condition of this machine.Looking for $3200 Obo.

    Mounting and dismounting the bike

    Sidestand down, mount from the right side. That is how CHP taught it (I forget why) and I rarely use the BMW with sidestand so, if it is down, right side. Centerstand, mount from left. Rock off the stand. Pillion gets on only when I'm on and either side or centerstand is up.

    Burgman 650. I just step through.
  7. $3 per tire, with or without rim. I usually build up a load of stuff to go to the waste transfer station, and will take two or three sets at a time. They also take hazardous waste for free (for the most part), so that works out pretty well.

    I've used a dremel type of tool with wire brushes...several wire brushes. It will surprise you how much work it will be to get the threads clean.

    I'll make sure to do as you say, thanks

    I'd be surprised if the hair dryer will work. Those pins need to be at "damn near burn the garage down" hot. Also, take some wire brushes and clean all the old locktite out of the threads. Ensure that you can screw everything together by hand. It's very easy to cross-thread those big threads. You don't want to be wondering, "Am I cross threaded or am I just pushing through some old locktite?"

    A Honda? Really

    I've ridden the Piaggio MP 3 which is smaller but has a similar design. The bike is really planted in the turns because when one front wheel is off the ground after a bump, the other is likely solidly on the ground in the ground so the bike maintains its line of travel. A handlebar switch locked the wheels when stopped and the automatically unlock once the bike is underway. No need to flat foot the bike. Unfortunately I always thought the plastic front looked like a lawn tractor. The Honda design has lots of sharp edges everywhere. Seems like new bike and car designs are headed that way. Look at the front fenders. Look at the new RT. I look forward to seeing one in-the-flesh, so to speak. Best Miguel

    Do you have a rule whereby, like, you can only take one photo with a car, and then you have to move on to another one?

    Craigslist find of the day

    That's a good price. I believe the new price is close to $3000.

    A Honda? Really

    Now your talking. Back it in! Piaggio's legal department has to be looking at all this. The motorcycle industry has a long history of aping each other so this was to be expected. It will be interesting to see how the Yamaha Niken, the Honda Tri-wing? and others go after this segment. Can't wait to see the KTM Triple Duke! Purists may hate this newfangled heresy, but like the tag line says, If the good old days were so damn good...

    Anyone tried Metzler Roadtec 01 tires on their RT?

    RE: Metlezer Z8's on a 96 BMW R1100 RT. I wore one out in about 4000 km, give or take. turns out I have been running them under inflated apparently, but not by much, around 34-36 psi. as the recommended 40 psi and seemed high to me. What do I know apparently? I wore the front down to the core in no time. The back has a decent flat spot now. hmm. I put a new front one on and run them both about 40-42 psi. just those few pounds made the bike handle completely different. However, at about 1800 kms on the front its starting to split at a manufacturers seam. This week ,I learn will how good the local dealer is with warranties and so forth. I run a bluetooth tire pressure motoring system know exactly what tire pressures are at all times. Performance wise, they are top notch. Handling in wet and dry these tires are amazing. but longevity is really a concern. if I can get a few thousand miles out of a sport touring tire, I wont be a happy camper. These things are crazy expensive in Canada as well.

    A Honda? Really

    This is not a trike (or reverse trike, if you prefer), it's a motorcycle with 2 front wheels. It leans into (not away from) a turn. You countersteer it like a motorcycle, instead of direct-steering like a trike/Spyder/sidecar. Yes, having it stand on its own at a light, like the Piaggio MP3 does/did, would certainly be desirable. No need for a centerstand or a sidestand, either. Just think how much better it will handle without carrying those extra 3 lb! OT: I think vehicle licensing should be more fine-grained than just "car" or "motorcycle". A sidecar rig handles differently than a trike which handles differently than a motorcycle, yet a motorcycle license allows you to operate any of them.

    three wheel motorcycles look best with two wheels in the rear but handle best with them up front

    That’s not as much fun as fire. But do be careful of painted parts like the swing arm and nearby brake lines and wiring if you go with a torch.
