Greetings from the parched, windswept plains of Texas. I hope to acquire my new 1250 soon. I look forward to the collective wisdom on this forum.

Hello from wet, flat, hot Florida. You will love the bike. The engine is a bit noisy and agricultural at idle, but you will get used to it. Everything else is awesome. It’s the perfect combination of touring, dirt and sports bike. It puts a smile on my face every time I ride it :)

Thanks folks and yes I will continue to wave to other bikes.

Top Ten Reasons Why BMW Riders Don’t Wave Back.

10. New Aerostich suit too stiff to raise arm.
9. Removing a hand from the bars is considered “bad form.”
8. Your bike isn’t weird enough looking to justify acknowledgment.
7. Too sore from an 800-mile day on a stock “comfort” seat.
6. Too busy programming the GPS, monitoring radar, listening to ipod, XM, or talking on the cell phone.
5. He’s an Iron Butt rider and you’re not!.
4. Wires from Gerbings is too short.
3. You’re not riding the “right kind” of BMW.
2. You haven’t been properly introduced.
1. Afraid it will be misinterpreted as a friendly gesture

Truly a Swiss Army knife of riding. It does everything exceptionally well!

The ONLY negative is my heel hits the centerstand foot handle. :LOL:

Quick update, I checked the rear drive spline area after only 700 miles on the bike and it had almost no grease. I applied some moly paste and now should be good for several thousand miles.
