New to me '04 RS
I traded my '01 RS over the weekend for an '04 in Capri Blue (pictures to come).
Had 2 questions for you guys out there.
1) I can hear the ABS functioning on the '04, but I never really noticed it on the '01. Anybody have any experience with this?
2) The '04 has Metzlers on it; I ran Dunlops on the '01. I noticed that when turning at parking lot speeds on the '04 the front end wants to heel over into the turn much more sharply than my '01 w/Dunlops, makes the front end feel almost heavy. I know there is a much sharper profile on the Metzlers, so is this typical steering for these tires? What kind of mileage can I expect from them?
I picked the bike up at BMW of Pittsburgh and was really happy with the treatment I received there from Lee Marks. It's worth a stop if you happen to be in the area, quite a few bikes in stock, including Ducks and Triumph.
