A Big Thank You

Postby pats.piercing » Tue Jul 10, 2018 4:22 pm

I would just like to say a big thank you to all the contributors to this forum.
I have now sold my R1100RT and will probably buy another Honda.
The R1100RT has given me lots of problems (all typical faults, Neutral light, ABS, clutch switch, petrol pump, fuel gauge, Brake light Switch, etc).
With having to remove the fairing to do anything on the bike it has been the most difficult and frustrating bike I have ever worked on.
It has only been with the help of this forum that I have been able to get the bike into a saleable condition.
Again thank you all.

Hi Mick,

Glad the forum was able to help!

I have been riding my R1100RT without the side fairings for a couple of years now - I much prefer it that way as it makes maintenance so much easier and gives me a chance of any get-you-home repairs.

Better luck with your new bike and consider sticking around here to pass on your experiences.

All the best! :smile:

Interestingly, one of the two most problematic bikes I've owned was a Honda.
The other was a Yamaha.
Go figure

Hi pats,
Whilst thinking of investing in a Honda, peruse the used columns for a late-model auto-transmission 750cc or 1200cc "NC" series bike. A true revolution in modern ridability. No clutch lever and no gear pedal, but six seamlessly-changing gears operated through electronically-controlled twin clutches with total options over switching to manual on-the-fly via thumb- and forefinger-paddles on the left hand bar.
I've had one for the last 3 years from new; a remarkable "New Concept" in motorcycling.
P>S> I have no connection with Honda motorcycles.
This is the list of people I'd trust with my bike.

I was thinking more of a CBR600RR or a Fireblade but thanks for the suggestion. After the BMW I fancy a fun bike. :grin:

I've just sold my R1150R not because I had problems with it,except for having to take out the Servo/ABS of course.
Just fancied a change and now waiting for my new to me Pan European to be prepared for collection.
2001 BMW R1150R now without ABS. Now gone and riding Pan European. Back in the fold with 2005 R1200RT.
