    Yeah, you're 100% right! The clutch felt good when I bought it but it was on its last legs.

    Not surprising for a police vehicle in hindsight.

    If you've ever seen a low speed cornering Police class you'd understand why they go thru clutches. "Ride the rear brake, Slip the hell outta the clutch, Lean the wrong way". doing this you can turnaround on a Coke Can.

    That's the proper way to do some amazing slow speed stuff. I use those same techniques on every bike I ride when I need to maneuver in and out of cars while splitting lanes.

    The guy at the dealership said the record goes to a CHP officer who completely wore out a clutch in 1500 miles.

    Yes definitively a service vehicle will have more wear/tear,
    after all it's just a tool. My nephew is NYPD officer, he said some patrol cars are literally running all the time during extreme weather hot/cold, mostly to keep onboard electronics happy. 100K is average service life, it gets moved to less severe service or auctioned off.

    Depending who you ask a BMW dry clutch should last well over a 100K in normal use, some claim 200k !!, IAC your good for a while

    Any one own a German car? No different. I'd have to sell my E-500 if I couldn't work on it myself. A spare key was $550!

    Very much the same! Repairs on my older BMW (2003) routinely run more than 50% of the current value of the vehicle.

    The only german cars I've actually owned and care for are VW's Type 1 and Type 2 thru 1979, after that
    I always lusted for a Type 993(aircooled) Porsche, but they are a maintenance nightmare and have a lot of issues $$$$$$.

    Like I mentioned before the whole "DIESEL GATE" issues really turned me off on modern german cars

    It's funny there's a lot of BMW drivetrain equipped, cheap chinese cars in other countries, that actually work quite well.

    In the other hand the Toyota Supra having a BMW engine, etc. is completely retarded and high treason to the faithfull IMO !!

    And talking about OLD BMW cars. My mother owned a BMW Isetta 300 like the one pictured below when I was a kid. My brother and I would ride in the back standing up through the sunroof!!!!!!!! You'd get arrested these days for doing that. Child endangerment!!!

    It didn't last long. It developed some sort of mechanical problem and no one around my neck of the woods could work on it.



    Check out how the car opened.

    There was a time when the only bicycles that shifted worth a damn cost over $2000.

    Now, a $129 Chinese special from WalMart works sweet.

    I used to mountain bike with strong kids. To keep up, I could afford building a light bike. The kids were always broke and rode 40 pound ones.

    But, a WalMart bike shifts as nice as a $2000 bike.

    It's a police bike thing.

    There are lots of people here who are not fond of law enforcement and I don't want to attract attention to the bike when it's parked unattended.

    I cover my ZRX in parking garages for somewhat similar reasons. I don't want to attract attention to it.

    Re: AV80R's BMW R1200RTP "Poncherello"

    Itís getting pretty chilly, and itís nowhere near winter yet!



    The Aerostich Roadcrafter has been essential for my commute.



    Iíve owned these Harley Davidson boots for 16 years. Theyíre fantastic, I tried to find them to buy again, but I donít think they sell the same boot anymore. Made in China.







    This Kanetsu heated vest from Aerostich is a lifesaver when riding in the 30ís (Fahrenheit). Iím so glad I got it.



    The cord comes out of the Roadcrafter neatly on the side out of a zippered pocket.



    It folds up into itself which is a nice feature.





    During the cold mornings, the Dunlop Roadsmart III leaves quite a bit to be desired in terms of grip, especially for the first 5 mins of my ride before theyíre warmed up.

    I think Iíll try a different tire when Iím due for some new ones. I think I can find something that feels better as they are warming up.

    The front tire is more worn than the rear. Iím not sure if they were replaced as a pair but I suspect a new rear was put on while the front was worn down a bit.

    35 psi front and 40 psi rear, cold, seems to feel the best.

    Iím seeing 2-3 psi rise when the tires are warmed up after riding.

    Forecast 43/75, but it is 36 this morning. I think I'll stay in here.

    When I have had heavy bikes, they would push the front a bit and wear more. Could be I didn't have the best setup too.

    Boo!

    I agree. If I leave my 1100 in plain view for any extended period of time, I cover it and even put a Krypto disc lock on it. Keeps honest people honest

    Conversely if in the garage with the door down I donít do either of those things
