only 80mph w/sidecases?
The OM for my bike says that top speed for the bike with saddlebags should not exceed 80mph. I wonder if this is a lawyerly disclaimer, or is there a good reason for this recommendation? It just seems a bit odd, considering the bike was made in the land of the Autobahn. Gotta believe that at 80mph you'd have to stay waaay over to the right on the 'bahn, if you wanted to survive. So why the self-imposed speed limit w/cases on? Maybe BMW just wanted to make sure the cases stay on...
(personal disclaimer: why bless my buttons, officer, I would never, ever run this bike over 65mph! )
