And let's give the flick to - Where did You go on your Roadster today?
That wasn’t the question, Mike, but it’s not such a bad idea. I have now moved it to the Rider Report sub-forum, where I think it belongs.

Are you saying the ‘where did you go’ stuff be individual threads in the Rider Report sub-forum?

Sometimes it's nice to rattle off a little minor tweak done, just to make conversation. For the nuggets of gold and highly technical bits, those could be moved to either an individual thread (tech stuff), or have a mod-controlled "nuggets of wisdom" thread where they could be quoted. Sort of a "best of the best technical ideas" thread.


and...
My blinker fluid is OK, just checked. I think the muffler bearings might be going, though.

Yeah, I am saying put it in the rider report sub-forum. Although moving it might get a catty reaction from some of the feral off-topic offenders here. I'm with you PZ, move it asap so the thread doesn't stray too far off-topic.

Don’t bring stray cats into this again, Mike - we’ve all had enough of Nigel ...

I asked my local BMW dealer how much it would be to add an Akrapovic exhaust on my few-months-old R1250R, and was quoted $4000.:oops:

I was told it’s not just the muffler and heat shield anymore, but a plug-and-play one piece with all new headers, etc. Sounds odd..maybe I’ll ask again the next time I go in and see if I get a different answer. Maybe it has to do with the new Euro emissions issue...?

Needless to say, at $4K I won’t be doing that upgrade anytime soon.

That would be the ideal solution, r0ckrat. Unfortunately I think the horse has bolted, and it would require more time/attention than I and other Moderators would likely have to devote to the task of moving posts and threads. The F800 Riders Forum has a Hall of Wisdom (which newbies invariably don't check before asking questions ...) that has logical categories for authoritative threads. Members can post there (with Moderator option to move out) or recommend to Moderators a great post/thread for moving there. You volunteering?

I do take the point that it's nice to have a thread for I did this or that or idle chatter for a bit of self or peer congratulation or whatever to help build community. Beats cat posts.

On your muffler issue, I can recommend this product:
