  1. 2008 RT Brake Failure light

    My brake failure light comes on at times, indicating or the result of ABS failure,( have tested abs in controlled situation). If I shut it down for a period of time and recycles it goes off as it should. Only seems to come on when I use the rear brake. Owners manual says take it to a dealer of course. Manual suggests its in the controller. Brakes work fine just no abs. Thoughts. I just hate going to the dealer $$$$

  2. Who is this guy?

    Wes said, " if you don't vote, you can't complain!"

    Rather than complain, however, I'd like to be part of shaping the Club. I'm a forum user, so this seems like the best place for me to start.

Did I mention I like Motorcycles? I like to wrench so I have the equipment and tools ...

  3. R 1150 r

    I recently picked up a 2002, R 1150 R - looked like a fun bike for short rides. I am a tall guy and had planned on making modifications to accommodate my long legs. Handlebar risers with a draw back,
    Corbin custom seat and built tall. The problem I am having is finding aftermarket parts to lower my foot pegs, rear break and shift lever. Does anyone have experience or know of a source for a foot control lowering kit?
  4. Barkbusters

    Has anyone installed VPS Barkbusters on a 2017 R1200GS Rallye? I bought the kit at the Iowa Rally and went to YouTube for installation instructions, but the examples were different than my bike. The OEM handguards look like they are connected to the mirror and it doesn’t look like there is room for the inner point connection?

    Meet Marley, A well maintained 2002 R1150R. A little about her. She started out her life on the east coast in Connecticut. At some she lived in New York City.
