I had not seen that done before but he made it looked so easy. I don't think I will be doing it myself however, as I would sure hate to drop my R1150RT-P.

I'll need to spend A LOT more time in the gym before I can do that on my LT. I'm lucky I can turn around in my garage easily.

Re: 1975 BMW Rider Safety Film

I ordered a 1000 lbs. lazy suzan turntable from Woodcrafter's supply and with a bit of hard wood and some aluminum deck plate, a turntable for the LT centerstand is my winter project. Don't think I would like to try it on the concrete without that.

But Officer, the BMW Training Film I just watched showed me that it's OK to Lane Split, Pass on the Right and Roll through a stop sign!

No, it's not. Over there, you can (and are expected to) run up between stopped vehicles. Still, I find it always very exciting when doing that on a 10km long "Stau" (autobahn jam), just barely fitting the sidecases between cargo trucks.

Different countries, different customs. In CA, you can lane-split - which we envy in NJ. In Italy, you are expected to pass on the centerline, between streams of opposing traffic. Took me a long time to screw up enough courage to do that.


By the way, I bet that if you can pronounce "obtuse angle" with a British accent, like the narrator on the video, the cop will let you go...

Well.....since you do have a classic BMW AND Roxford Files in the background......

The screen reports "This video has been removed by the user". I hope this is a temporary condition. I was looking forward to seeing it.
