JDog Posted November 27, 2007 Share Posted November 27, 2007 This is my first time (with any type of forum), so, please, be gentle! After dropping my 2001 Concours (which I liked) earlier this summer, with me on it, I managed to get it home, but the friendly insurance company totalled it. So,after doing some looking around, particularly for ABS, I found a 2004 R1150RT, at a good price. The wife nixed it, but after talking to the only two motorcyclists who stopped at an overlook north of Santa Barbara, who happened to be riding 1150RTs, I decided that was a sign, and proceeded to antagonize my wife. I had to do it. The upshotis, I love the bike. I've been doing 2000+ miles a month, as my main mode of transit for work, and have yet to not look forward to getting on it to go anywhere. I will be scrutinizing this site for maintanance tips, as from what I have studied so far, with the BMW manual and Clymer, I'm afraid to do some of the basics, such as brake pads, for fear of messing up the Motronic, and having to get it to the BMW dealer. Any helpful hints? John C. Link to comment
