Joe,

You and I are strikingly similar...even though BMW makes a superior ride...I always have to tweak/tune/add things to make my rides my own. Hope youre having an awesome time on your new toy....there may be one in my future. (Will have to sell the other '50s Harley relic)

Best,

F

Location of the air and gas filter?

Joe,
Are they easier to replace on the GT? Where are they? If an updated version of the LT(or at least solid rumors of one) don't surface soon, I could become interested in the GT.

Thanks,

Top photo, shiney bit above front wheel with black bits and wires. This is the bit that comes on line at 7000rpm. It stores the dynamic flux when you decellarate and releases it when you go over 7k rpm. Usually the optional gravity compensation unit will also kick in a few thousand revs later. This is why the front wheel goes light and may even rise up in the air a bit.

Sorry if this is a bit technical, but you did ask.

You're going to love this answer...

Yes, the air filter is VERY easy to change. You still have some Tupperware to remove (right side), but that is a piece of cake compared to the LT.

The fuel filter would be easy to change...but get this! It's a lifetime filter. No changing required. (Um...yea! Like I'm not going to repalce mine...ever!)

Joe,

All kidding aside, the 'flux capacitor' sure looks a lot like the brake control unit on a LT. Is it a trick of the perspective or is it really mounted outboard of the frame? And is it the brake controller?

Joe I can think of many adjectives to describe you but IDIOT doesnt even enter the list, nowhere close. Passionate is probably the number one for you!

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...
