    I'm about to order one of these for my NAV 6 and just was trying to confirm that it won't have trouble mounting on my 2013 RT with the OEM GPS mounting bar. It looks like it should have enough clearance, but I've searched and haven't found any pics of it. Most people seem to use an aftermarket...

    Hi Folks. As I continue to work on getting my new used RT ready for the road this summer I was wondering if anyone wants to chime in on their favorite tank bags? Is the official larger BMW bag worth the ungodly price? What other options are there for third party tank bags that work well with...

    Hello Friends. Could anyone tell me if a stock BMW top case from a 1996 1100RT would be compatible with my 2010 R1200RT? I'm not sure how far back the mounting system on my bike goes back in the RT line. I know on many 3rd party cases the same case covers close to two decades of RTs, but wasn't...

    I have a 2006 R1200 RT. My Beemer will soon need tires and I am looking for an alternate to the local BMW shop. Frankly, a little under $500 for two tires seems overpriced. Does anyone know of a shop that can change the tires if I bring them, the wheels and tires, into their shop? The local...

    Hi All: I just purchased a 2017 R1200RT and I'd like to get an aftermarket top case for it. I've always been a fan of the Jesse cases for their strength and overall looks. I'd like to install the 45 liter standard top case but unfortunately Jesse doesn't make a top case mounting bracket for the...

    I'm looking at a trip with friends, all on GSs, to Alaska; lots of slick gravel roads. Does anyone have experience or can anyone recommend a "universal" tire or a GS tire that will fit/work on my 14 R1200RT? I've asked this same question of BMW engineers at Daytona Bike Week, and they laughed...

    I searched through the forums and was unable to find anything that could potentially help me solve my problem. If this has been discussed and I missed it could you please forward me to the topic and no need to take up space or bother anyone? My bike won't start and worried there may be several...

  14. RT Series
    Today while riding around town I noticed a sound coming from the road. Thought it was the road surface, but soon decided it was the bike (tires). Got home and inspected the tires for a foreign object only to find a spot on the front tire that will deflect a bit with a simple push of my thumb as...

    As the title says, I'm new to this forum. Looking forward to learning and offering input as my ability allows. Riding here in Alberta Canada is limited so hoping to meet some of you as we travel through the states during our cold season riding.

    I went to ride my 2014 RT a couple of days ago and it was completely dead. I had not ridden in probably 3 weeks or more, but I was surprised that it was completely dead. When I turn on the key I get nothing. I recently put the top case back on and the light works inside the case. I am concerned...

  20. RT Series
    I just bought a 2008 R1200RT, and have had it out on a few short rides. From past experience on other bikes, I am used to downshift directly to first, when stopping at a stop sign for example. It seems that I cannot do that on this bike. If I am approaching the stop in a high gear, I am...
