I might be wrong but I'm sure this is the first time I've heard of a K throwing a rod.

James Sherlock and Motorworks will have good motors you could drop in. Costas did just this with one from JS...

OTOH I think everyone will understand your reluctance to start over.

Good luck with the sale.

Hi Dave (hailing from the land of my fathers) and welcome to the madhouse that is EuroKClub and I'm really glad to see that you have handle bars on your K12, a very wise add-on  ;D

The ones on the M20 went live a couple of years ago. I got clicked (without noticing them) a month before the penalties started going out.

The answer is a subscription to PocketGPSWorld speed camera database and a decent sat nag...

...or don't do anything wrong on the roads  ;D

Hi Mike and welcome to the madhouse that is EuroKClub!

Long time since I hauled my very hot ass across a blazing Arizona landscape on the way from LA to Oklahoma City to collect a huge telescope bought for me by a friend.

I couldn't believe how far away the horizon really was, hours and hours and hours of interminable interstate with the distance never really seeming to get any shorter.

That's scale for you.

So, although your K12 will eat those huge distances for breakfast I assume you have some excellent twisty canyon roads to enjoy it on. Think of us here in UK shivering in our late summer / early autumn days...

Just this morning. They used to be quite regular but have been a little hit and miss over the holiday season. The newsletter is a one man show I believe.

Eurotunnel will be running. Late as usual and full of folks who thought they were going by ferry, but running.

'New 'Yellow Vulture' speed cameras can detect if you're on your mobile phone.
New "yellow vulture" speed cameras are being rolled out in the UK. Motorists pictured eating or smoking behind the wheel, or using their mobile phone, will be slapped with a £200 fine and 6 penalty points. Currently, the yellow vulture speed cameras have been set up along Gdynia Way, which leads into Plymouth city centre in Devon.'

This from the via this week's PocketGPSWorld newsletter.

Forewarned etc...

...bliss and variable to boot depending on your botty's mood.

And I assume you discovered the exquisite sensation after an hour or so of shifting your weight slightly from side to side and getting the hands-free massage of your nether regions  ;D

The exhaust flap is the BMW version of the fabled Yamaha EXUP device, a thing like a carburettor butterfly flap but in the exhaust pipe rather than the inlet side of the engine. It moves to restrict the airflow at certain revs and eventually gets fully open for 'normal' use. Tom, as far as I know, is the only one who has his disconnected.

If your dB killer has been removed then re-fitting one is the first step to happiness.

I have a suspicion that if Rossi rode a road bike in the UK with winter coming up he would choose the PR4/5's...

Hi Tristan and welcome to the madhouse that is EuroKClub!

Make sure you check out all the sound advice in here about buying and running a K which you will find somewhat, er, different, from your previous rides.

I doubt I could actually ride in a fixed full face these days.

I'm one of those tedious types who flips his front in every 30 limit and it is amazing; you get eye contact with locals who ignore all the riders in front but who nod and return my cheery 'good morning'. Weird as I don't do mornings and am rarly cheery...
