Re: Just bought my first BMW
Hey Joe (sounds like the beginning of a good song!) Interestingly enough, if you set your speed, like hold the throttle, or cruise control, say at 60mph or what ever speed you want to verify, and push your bc button until your mph number shows, push reset, and it will tell you what your actual speed is....weird I know, that the bike has the capability to know what the actual speed is, but the speedo doesn't tell you...???
Anyway try it sometime, I have done it at like 40, then 50, then 60 and so forth to let me know what the off set on the speedo is at those speeds, and then while I am riding, I already know what to subtract from the speedo to get a more accurate read on my speed. Hope this doesn't sound too confusing. Good luck.
