Ladies and Gents,
I recently acquired a 1200GS, my first Beemer. Having read a lot of comments on the dry clutch vs. wet clutch issue, I have a question. What technique is recommended for low speed control? The feather the rear brake/friction zone technique is what I am familiar with. Do police departments riding BMW's use that technique and just eat the additional clutch wear, or is the technique modified for the Beemer?
I like the slow-speed practice for proficiency, and I actually think it's a lot of fun. I don't want to destroy my new ride, though. Any suggestions on how to handle this aspect of riding?
