But he has 72 things on his helmet so it will probably even itself out...

Seriously, I have a large lump keeping my camera off the floor. It's called my shoulder, and if my head twists far enough for the camera to contact the floor, I'm probably already dead.

I know videos are difficult to show off well but I couldn't make out any of the reg. no's of the cars in that. My drift Ghosts show them clearly.

I was considering the DC-1 but bought another second hand Ghost instead.

It's interesting, not the maple syrup stuff.

My bike has only ever been tampered with by three dealers. The original selling dealer, NOG and Cotswold for the last one. The original owner had it on PCP (which I thought was a pressure gauge) and only ever loved it, rode it and smothered it in 3M film.

So, somewhere, we have a colour conflict.

Can you check your email address in your profile then. That's where it was sent.

I've sent it again, the electric pipes were probably frozen...

And the BMW system doesn't give the 'actual' pressures.

It seems it factors the pressure to what it would be at 20°C. Which I never seem to understand. You don't want your tyres running at what they 'would' be if it were a warm summer's day. You want them at 2.5 and 2.9 cold pressures 'this morning, at-minus-whatever-it-was'.

I never rely on the system to give me my actual pressures, that is always done with my gauges. What it is useful for is sudden or slow drops in pressure. As long as you see the yellow warning.

Push a fingernail in the front valve until it goes 'psssshhhhhhh'.

That'll be 2.5     ;)

They all only have connections on one side of the unit.

What you are selling IS an alarm/TPMS unit.

If you want to use TPMS you can use either unit, whether you use the alarm unit or not.

If you have only TPMS, you only need the clunky unit, which you don't have. My bike, a 2012 K13S, had TPMS as standard but no alarm so had the chunky TPMS only unit.

If you want an alarm unit AND you have TPMS, you need the unit you are selling. I wanted to have the alarm as well as the TPMS, so I bought the alarm/TPMS unit from a member who was emigrating. In my case it was plug and play.

If you want an alarm unit but don't want/need TPMS, you still need the unit you are selling.

Look at my photographs in the personal mail I sent you. If you haven't seen it check your rubbish bin.

It is worth about £40...

The TPMS only unit by itself is worth about £10...

OR £130...

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/171315217853

...if someone is daft enough.

Seeing as I couldn't find any on ebay in UK, perhaps it is 'worth' more at the moment.

To make it easier for you, I'll give you £5 for the alarm/TPMS unit. Simples! And I'll pay the postage  ;)

Hi Keith and welcome to the madhouse that is EuroKClub!

I got confused by the word 'justify'. But then I am a simple (single) guy.

Hope you enjoy whichever. Brian

If you have seen my pm with piccies you will have seen that you are selling a combined alarm/TPMS unit. Like I said, do your homework.

...and less of this 'we collectively'.

I didn't, collectively or otherwise. Does that mean I can still get one if I want one?

The things we do for you...

I was about to say black and very gungey. Then I realised that was the rubber seal/wotsit.

Mine on my 2012 1300S is clear. It looks very green to me but I'm sure that is the colour of bottle imparting its green hue.

Was that a typo or do really run your fronts at 2.9bar?

Considering you had the ---- up on the read-out I would hazard a guess that it might have been the battery voltage dipping.

Hi Steve and welcome to the madhouse that is EuroKClub!

Methinks you are in for a rough time in life if you go by what Eyore says... ;)

Welcome Boyd!
We like to run a tight ship here, roll call is at 0500 hours and everyone has to be online at that time! :D

This bike of yours, what bit of the light spectrum does it primarily bounce back at your eyes?

I never realised that there 'was' a 5 o'clock in the morning Matt.

You need to make sure which version of the alarm you have for sale.

The larger, clunkier one is the basic alarm. The smaller, glitzier one is the combined alarm/TPMS unit.

Not that this helps as you only have one so you can't compare.

I'll dig out my photos and pm them to you.

I agree.

Were I 30 years younger and in the market for a behemoth of a grand-tourer to spend 6 months of the year hooning two-up around the best places in Europe, a K16 would be top of my list.
