Re: G'day and Welcome!

Hi guys,
I'm in Brisbane and had a lot of Beemers but I do like the twins. I do all my own wrenching but it appears to be changing with this new to me R120RTP (police bike). It seems some things must be done with the dealers maintenance computer. Times are a changing.

I'm off on an East Coast USA holiday in a week but have already organised to get a GS911 tool sent from the beemershop to my New York Hotel as a carry home

Now I just need to figure out how to talk the boss into a drive from Orlando to the Corbin shop, about an hour away, for a new seat

Re: G'day and Welcome!

Cheers Guys, Just took a run over Mt Glorious and back via Fernvale, couple of hundred Kms. I needed economy figures as the fuel gauge don't work. I calculated 5 lts/100 Kms or a whopping 520 Kms out of a tank. Impressive. That seat is a bit like a besser brick after a while and the cop suspension is pretty hard but easy fixed, just need a credit card

PCH, I'll look into joining the club after we get back.

Welcome from Kennesaw GA!

You should really start your own intro thread though instead of commenting in someone else's.

Re: G'day and Welcome!

If i may hijack your thread with a question, what are your rides like over there? I imagine it's a whole 'nother kind of beautiful than we get here in the states. Seen enough aussie outback movies to know what your outback looks like, but never any ride footage and certainly never any coastal ride footage. Gotta be some nice rides on tap (plus beer). Cheers mate,

Re: G'day and Welcome!

Hi Bob, I've put a couple of videos up on YouTube under cws127.
And nil_time from Victoria has posted a few also, not sure of his YT name, but have a look in here and you'll find a thread on it somewhere.
I videod a lot when doing a trip around Oz, a bit like your 4-corners ride, but never got around to editing it... Maybe when I get to retire....

Re: G'day and Welcome!

Well its been a week know of riding the LT the only prob i can think so far is having to stop. Big difference to the 109 however loads better, the 109 was fun, but for what I wanted, and the riding I do this brings a grin from ear to ear, in saying that so does my 1200 gsa, which has its nose out of joint at the moment ( Might get them to mate and see what type of pups they produce)any way going to take it for a 4 dayer in about 2 weeks hopefully bump into a few others along the way, and get a few pic
cheers

Re: G'day and Welcome!

G'day fellow Aussie's,

Live in the Newcastle Region and brought a 2002 R1150RT last August (2016), my first BMW, been wanting a R1150RT since 2006, but could never afford one.

I do a 360klm round trip twice a week to Western Sydney for work on the RT, so a Intercom hooked up to the RT's on-board AM/FM Radio was one of the first things to be installed, surprising just how fast 180klm seems to go runing up and down the M1 while listening to radio stations.

Must say, the RT has not been a let down so far . . .

Re: G'day and Welcome!

G'day Grant... bit quiet around here these days, but nice to see a +1 on the population.
Seems to be more local chatter on I-BMW where there's an Aussie section too... but there's lots or RT riders here on this site so good bike info.

Chris,

Did you put a Michelin PR4GT on the front of your LT? I was thinking it was you that did that. How has it worked out?

I did John, put some notes on it in this thread which you had seen before..
http://www.bmwlt.com/forums/tires/16...-front-lt.html
The bike's been parked pretty much since then due to house renovations, but took it for a quick spin a few weeks back and it still felt great in the front.
Very happy with the PR4's on both bikes... just wish they made a rear for the LT too!

Re: G'day and Welcome!

Bump . . .

Been a while since I've posted on here, or anyone for that fact.

Been a thew changes in my life which has seen me return to the Sydney Region :-(. My R1150RT has also seen some changes too, with me getting back to my grass roots, my RT is now all marked up as a 'Medic bike', ride in Medical Support for Motorcycle Group & Charity Ride around Sydney and do the odd Motorcycle Marshal task for road cycling events.

Still love the RT, so much I purchased a 2nd set of Pannier's that don't have MEDIC plastered on the side, to allow me to get out and about without the need to carry my Medic gear all the time.
