    FOR SALE: BMW Passenger Backrest $100

    Assembly info .... Pry up the BMW rondel between the passenger grab rails until it pops out. Note bolt hole beneath rondel -- that's where the #3 bolt goes. Remove the black caps on top of the grab rails revealing bolt holes, one on each side. That's where the two #2 bolts go. Bolt the...

    FOR SALE: BMW Passenger Backrest $100

    FOR SALE: BMW passenger backrest for C 650 GT all years. Perfect condition on passenger side; some scuffs on the back side (see photos). New backrests are listed online today for $250 and up. I'm asking $100 plus shipping -- it's light and will fit in a Priority Mail box, so I'd guess $20 to...

    Installing BMW GPS Mounting Bracket Hardware and BMW Navigator VI/Cradle on 2016 and later C650GT

    I have a 2019 GT, as well. Won't be near my Service Manual until this evening but I will take a look for instructions on removing it. I'd guess it's like the BMW rondel at the rear of the bike between the passenger grips -- carefully pry it up until it pops out. UPDATE: Service manual DVD only...

    Bought an R 1200 RT ... keeping my C 650 GT.

    Wow, mama cow gave you one imposing look. I wouldn't mess with her. Speaking of the power of mama's .... Month ago I was getting dive-bombed by a mockingbird because I had the audacity to park my motorcycle under its tree. They are fiercely territorial. I made friends by offering broken up...

    Bought an R 1200 RT ... keeping my C 650 GT.

    I am liking the St. Lawrence Seaway option. This trip seems all about new roads so I might as well start right in. That's funny, horseshit on the curves. I need to get my deer awareness re-sharpened. That's not an issue in Florida. I am way out of practice with keeping an eye on the woods for...

    Bought an R 1200 RT ... keeping my C 650 GT.

    Bill, You do such a nice job on the videos. So smooth. It is exciting to see that beautiful, rolling countryside. I can't wait! Riding anywhere other than the pool-table flat, N-S-E-W grid of Florida will be like escaping from prison. Speaking of which, remember those two convicts doing life...

    Bought an R 1200 RT ... keeping my C 650 GT.

    And the winner is .... Fly 'n Ride. With riding my GT from Florida to New York and back as an agreeable default plan, I kept looking for bikes up north. It was always my preference to ride that distance one time, not twice. Today I found a pretty 2003 Honda Silver Wing in the top of New York...

    Bought an R 1200 RT ... keeping my C 650 GT.

    "Does FL seriously knick you for taxes and registration?" I suspect it's the same as most places, except for the annoying "new to the state" surcharge. I mentally plan on adding $500 for the State of Florida with any bike. In almost every case, both parties agree to report a lower purchase...

    Bought an R 1200 RT ... keeping my C 650 GT.

    "Which one do you think is better? R series or K?" First, resolution to this thread. I sold the R 1200 RT tonight. Made $100 and got to enjoy a legendary Boxer engine for a week. My main memory for this bike will be riding on I-95 feeling like I was sitting in a train watching the landscape...

    Corbin Leather Seat For OEM “2016” C650GT Seat

    I just sent you a DM with my personal contact info. Seat sounds like what I would design, black with black stitching. I will get some pics for you.

    Corbin Leather Seat For OEM “2016” C650GT Seat

    "The stock backrest can be adjusted right?" Correct. As noted in the owner's manual, the OEM seat is put on the bike in the rearmost position. You can move it two positions forward with a few screws. To make matters worse (for you), the Corbin seat adds one inch in the rearward direction vs...

    Corbin Leather Seat For OEM “2016” C650GT Seat

    I will defer to the esteemed EvilTwin if he has interest in acquiring the seat. But if not, I have a like-new (9,000 miles) OEM seat from a 2019 that will fit your 2016. Depending on the design of the Corbin, and whether it is heated for the GT, I'd be willing to cover the shipping costs for...

    Bought an R 1200 RT ... keeping my C 650 GT.

    The pegs are integrated. That's part of the design. They fit neatly into a little horizontal channel in the valve covers. And they are not too high at all. In fact, the higher the better, because it enhances blood flow in the legs. I looked into the Ilium pegs last week. One of the bikes I...

    Bought an R 1200 RT ... keeping my C 650 GT.

    A temporary mod is a good idea. No ideas pop into mind though. The pegs wrap around the heads and disappear out of sight. The pegs aren't terribly strong. If i put my feet in the pegs, like stirrups, my legs are about three-fourth's extended, which is unnatural and uncomfortable. if I rest my...

    Bought an R 1200 RT ... keeping my C 650 GT.

    ERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR! (SCREECHING TIRES) That sound you hear is me doing a 180 on the R 1200 RT. I've been riding it exclusively for the last few days. I'm fine with shifting. Was starting to really like the bike until I tried the highway pegs extensively today -- C 650 GT's equivalent of...

    Bought an R 1200 RT ... keeping my C 650 GT.

    Mama Mia, that's a beautiful 2009 RT! I always lust after Corbin seats and you're right, the BMW top case looks perfect on that bike. That is a dream machine. Well, actually, in my dream it would be red or green. I won't be adding anything other than fluids and filters and plugs and grease...

    C 400 GT: Added Skene P3-TS Brake-Flashing and Turn-Signal-Flashing LED Modules

    Nice work. I think the added visibility is especially valuable as the profile of the bike becomes smaller. And with the syncopated flashing, if a car blasting music pulls up next to you at a stop light, you'll look like part of the party! I see the blue beast is still there. Is Mr. Scranton...

    Bought an R 1200 RT ... keeping my C 650 GT.

    Bill: The seat is surprisingly high. I'm 6'1" and it's nearly tippy-toe, even in the low position. That beaded cushion doesn't help, although it is surprisingly comfortable. I learned a bit about the ESA when you mentioned it, and thanks again for that on short notice. I won't be using it...

    Bought an R 1200 RT ... keeping my C 650 GT.

    Road trip planning .... I live in South Florida and have been planning a month or two stay in my hometown of Rochester, New York. Since getting there is half the fun, I've explored several modes of transportation. 1. Tow my C 650 GT. I bought my Toyota Prius from an attorney who loved to race...

    C 400 GT: Anyone Figure Out A Way To Add A TPMS?

    "Well, maybe I'll just ... put one on the back wheel ... That'll cut my bending over in half." That's probably what I'd do. You may know most flat tires on a motorcycle happen in the rear. That's because the screws or nails or pieces of metal that cause flats are rarely standing upright waiting...
