Mike, nothing like a bike with great brakes, Italians certainly know how to make stoppers. With that in mind, I am currently putting braided lines on my R1100GS, started to get a soft feeling whenever using the skids.
Checked out the brake lines and there were some serious looking wear indicators, like big cracks in the rubber.
What was the recall about, that was so serious it was too dangerous to ride?
Have you got that funny looking two into wunz-on exhaust?
