    So this saturday was spent in the garage with the Ipod and Flask. It was a great day! Oil change, Oil and Air Filters, Spark Plug, topped up the Scottoiler, put the TT Front Mudguard back on due to the weather changing. Then gave the bike a quick clean over with some rags, re-greased the usual...

    Couple of days ago I noticed my front axle clamp screw was missing! I had been riding without it, blissfully unaware, for god knows how long. But once I noticed it, I did not want to ride the bike until I replaced it. Neither SLM or Battersea had one in stock. As I was heading towards Battersea...

    Phoned my local BMW dealer today for a quote for a 6k mile service. £275!!! And, apparently, it may not need plugs or an air filter so they're not included in the price! I guessed it would be quite high but thats mad!!!! 3 to 4 hours labour, oil and a filter, i reckon thats gotta be £50-60 per...

    Yes, that's euros, not miles... I recently emigrated to Germany, now resident in Berlin, a very nice city BTW, I recommend it. Imported my bike last month, rode it from Glasgow to Newcastle, took the ferry to Amsterdam and thence rode up the very boring E30 to Berlin. Now, apparently...

    Hi, a couple of questions about costs if anyone can help.: How much should a 12,000 mile dealer service cost on my '03 GS? Where are the best places to get tyres at reasonable prices, and do you usually buy them and get them fitted elsewhere, or buy them from the fitter? Just planning ahead...

    Hi All, You're probably getting as fed up with my bike as I am. I did the service about a month ago. It ran horrible but I had the plug leads on the wrong way round :doh:. I still have the rattle at start up when the engine is cold. When turning over there is like a tick....tick...tick...
