Re: Anyone ever fitted a Cruise Control device?!

Me too - they do the job a treat - and transfer to another bike in a jiffy

I put a zip tie through mine to make it a bit harder to nick ;)

Re: BMW 2012 GS

Nice looking bike - Looks like a bargain for someone (not me, I've got one)
Might help your sale if you list the options though (thumbs)

You know - ESA, heated grips, computer, etc

Re: BMW accessory adapter.

I use the Optimate solution as well (thumbs)
The charging lead direct to the battery is dead useful for rotating charging in the garage -
And you can get a selection of accessory leads from Optimate now - including USB chargers, lights etc.

Re: Windproof mid-layer required

I use an EDZ innershell jacket for a windproof mid layer - packs into a tiny bag you can keep in you pcket & is very effective (thumbs) http://edzdirect.com/products/edz-innershell-jacket-pertex-microlight-black-mk1?utm_medium=cpc&utm_source=googlepla&variant=499553069&gclid=CL_P0PWM_8gCFQsUwwod9vsGpQ

Re: Left handed motorcyclists ?

I'm left handed & the only problem I have is when I e-mail photos from my IPhone, they get sent upside down because I use the phone left handed.

Never had an issue on any bike or car though :)

Re: Help, my leathers have shrunk

I got a pair of Dainese leather trousers - very comfortable - calf zips at the rear, so they don't chafe on your ankles - extra zip & material so you can wear them under or over your boots - no knee sliders or other fancy stuff (thumbs)
