    Rear Tyre Question

    Curious …. Have always had a thing for sidecars … in my country that makes you as wide as a car so no filtering . But if you would not mind sharing a pic of how it looks set up with a sidecar I .would be delighted … also I guess a “quick release ” kind of system does not exist with a sidecar...

    Classic vs FE: Same ride?

    I am absolutely not a fairing and hard case or music system and TFT screen kind of guy. If style was the only criterion ...the FE all day. Suspension is my only bugbear. Have an offer from a dealer for a demo R18 FE... but one with no reverse as is the standard offering in my market. Will...

    Classic vs FE: Same ride?

    Looks beautiful :-) That brown seat offsets great against the beautiful black. Thanks for the advise. In my book the FE really is the better looking bike over the Bagger and TC. I like the extended rake and the spoked wheels and the clean simple design so much more than the TC or Bagger. I...

    Rear Tyre Question

    Hi BlackDog - I actually do not own one yet. Fence sitting because of the rear suspension. Been keeping check on all the forum posts on suspension. Then read about the bagger and reworked suspension on the TC and B. Read also about the TT Black T rear shocks stage 4 but have not really seen...

    Classic vs FE: Same ride?

    Just the guy I am looking for :-) From what I gather you ride the R18 C and have tested the R18 B... Therein lies my curiosity. A few questions If I may 1) Is the B rear suspension "sorted" out with respect to harshness that one finds on the rough patches with the R18 ? Is the B with Bmw's...

    Rear Tyre Question

    My question is …. 🤷🏻‍♂️ HOW could they have missed that ? It’s beyond absurd . Did no one realise that there is not even a digital option on the meter to indicate fuel bars ??? It seems like an insane design oversight . The other thing I find was strange is that one cannot easily use the...

    Rear Tyre Question

    That gives me hope 😊 fuel gauge I have also thought of a possible solution … just keep topping up the tank at every x or y km run… or basically every time one checks the tyres for Air - so at least weekly one would top up the tank . On a long ride - just keep pulling in to decent looking...

    Rear Tyre Question

    Thanks Black Dog … as explained to MatMat the shops on the side of the highways are tiny tyre stalls just aimed at fixing punctures on standard vehicles . Although when you mention rhe tools needed I would assume they may have been available at a bigger repair shop. Here in India these tiny...

    Rear Tyre Question

    Well it is possible that they did not have some size of tool needed because these are small tyre stalls mainly geared to handle standard mass produced machines - thanks for rhe link

    Rear Tyre Question

    Apparently he was too far and impatient from what I understand . Dealer dispatched RSA but it would take some time and rhe gent was irritable with the delay. So he tried to get a fix from a tyre stall near by to him rather than wait . Long and short of it the mention of “special tool” had me...

    Rear Tyre Question

    Hi - I have a question . Someone on a whatsapp group took a demo R18 on a long ride . He had a puncture of the rear tyre. Apparently he reports that he could not get a local tyre shop in the area to sort him out because the Rear tyre cannot be removed without a special bmw tool - which he...
