  1. Maintenance and Modifications
    Good Day everybody. I'm Diaan, I live in Durban, South Africa. A Helicopter pilot by profession. I ride a 310R and a 2007 R1200GS. I was involved in a small prang that left my GS in need of repairs. Nothing too serious, bent front shock and the pillion footrest needed re-welding. I removed...

    Last July, I purchased my dream motorcycle, 2013 R1200GS with 11,000 miles on it. The original owner was an engineer and had a detailed Excel file for all the maintenance completed on the bike. I have owned a Kawasaki 350, Suzuki GS850G, and a Honda 1200 American Classic before this BMW. I...

  6. Maintenance and Modifications
    Hi all I purchased a 2006 r1200 gsa a month ago which has just reached 40 000km, having rang around to get a price on servicing it I am shocked to have been quoted $850 AUD. Now I used to service all my own vehicles in the past and at this price I am going to go back to servicing my own. What...
