Spent 20 frustrating minutes unscrewing then rescrewing the main seat using the little contraangle torx driver under the pillion seat before, right at the end, locating the straight handled torx driver in the nylon pouch.  Fecking DOH!!  :138:
Don't feel bad. I've done the same  :745:

Made it all dirty going through first post-snowy roads in Grimsel, Furka and Susten passes. But loved it. I like the Gletsch to Furka road and the whole Susten road these are truly lovely for bike riding. Now a wash got a bit salty and muddy, saw other two R's one traveling with saddles on the way back from Susten to Wassen....

Thanks! Yes and I am grateful. I have a clip going up to Furka (and this particular part of curves) with the R and I have on the archives another the same with the Diavel. Will do one with both let's see how it goes now I have the GoPro studio so I hope to make it 60fps will post that one later.

amp you are blessed with some of the best biking roads in Europe. I was in Switzerland on the 12th  September 2014 on my GS at that time and had a load of Swiss passes to do but sadly the weather was not good at that time and I was informed not to do them as rain and low cloud would spoil it so I didn't do them. One day I will return and do them.
I'll be back as Arnie said  :745:

Today I:

Read this entire thread from the beginning  :087:
Found many things I now want to buy
Decided to put the pro plug in even thought I have kept it in road mode 99% of the time
Decided that after 3 months and 3k miles it was time for its first wash   :745:
Coolant was low so I topped it off
While filling up the coolant I noticed that the wash down didn't do a thing for all the road grime on the underside and I am going to have to give it a serious cleaning next time I have a day off.

Did a track day at Castle Coombe in the UK and loved it. First proper track day and finally got me bloody knee down. Good photographer there too -



You got the minerals?

Great pics. I'm determined to do my first ever trackday next year so will no doubt ask for advice then. Unsure whether it will be on my S1000R for fear of coming off!  :087:

As for what have I done to my S1000R today? Let it sit in the rain at home because I forgot to cover it, whilst I try to work from home over a dodgy VPN connection.
