    My 650 V-Strom is liquid cooled and has an oil cooler as well! I consider it extra insurance as oil is the lifeblood of an engine! Would have thought BMW would include it!

    Some of the K bikes have oil coolers. My K1300S has a cooler as did my K1200RS.

    Crusty - Not to cut into your style, but exclamation points lose their meaning if over-used. Just sayin...

    Watching the sunrise outdoors statistically increases your odds of having a good day. And needing a nap after lunch.

    Exclamation points are not available to me when I use my tablet as I did then and now! Sorry!

    There are motorcycle owners, and there are motorcycle riders.
    And then there are those of us for whom motorcycling is an essential part of our journey - a way of life, and looking at it.
