Re: (new rider) wind while riding at 50 mph uncomfortable

Of and by the way, I have dropped mine once... On my first long ride after getting the bike I dropped it at a stop sign on my way home 2 blocks from my house, It slowly fell like a tree cut down by a lumberjack.

Re: (new rider) wind while riding at 50 mph uncomfortable

800 miles riding experience... The R1150R is HUGE for a beginner. I am a relative new rider with only 4 or 5 years riding experience. I started with a old 1984 Honda VT500 Ascot, has similar riding geometry as the R1150R but the bike is 500cc and weights just over 400 pounds (If I remember correctly...

Re: New 2004 R1150R owner, what do I need (beginning rider)

I will have to agree with the other posts. Before the lights, before the back brace, before the air horn... Get a good pair of boots and pants. Protect yourself, then the bike, it's easier to fix. I do find the horn on the R1150R sufficiently loud to attract the attention of other drivers. I have re...

Re: Want a new front fender. Any suggestions?

Torsen,
The front side mounting holes have been ground down, the PO completed this mod, I wish I had more information than the photos. Let me know if you would like any more specific photos.

Re: Want a new front fender. Any suggestions?

Here are a few more detailed shots of my front fender, please excuse the dirty bike... I am also planning on adding the 'Fenda Extenda' this spring. http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a205/jcrona/Fender%20Side_zpsk2riuyqf.jpg http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a205/jcrona/Fender%20Top_zps8gsymiy6.jpg ...

Re: Want a new front fender. Any suggestions?

Monkey, I believe the fork sliders have been modified to accept the R1200C, I'll try and get a better phot this evening.

Re: Want a new front fender. Any suggestions?

The previous owner of my bike added a fender from a R1200C, I really like the look on the R1150R. Sorry for the lack of detail on the photo.

Enjoy,

Re: Summertime coolant service.....

Just checked my coolant, I typically check it on the same interval as changing the oil. It's just easier for me to remember that way.
