For sure, can see the benefit baloo! Thankfully I haven’t had any problems from dealer service so far, so being mechanical disinclined hasn’t been an issue (minus the dent to my wallet) 🤞
Most dealerships have a full set of wallet hammers. Bought two snorks on the inner webs and both were delivered yesterday for a little less than the price of a new one from 🇩🇪. Funny how one had a "like new" airbox attached to it and that one was 10 bucks less than the snork alone. Free shipping too. Go figure. Anyone need an airbox? Lol
Just check the bike over and rode with hun and a buddy. Norfolk- Portsmouth-Suffolk- Smithfield- Surry - took the Scotland/Jamestown ferry to Williamsburg for a delicious sailor and Guido at Paul's . Then back home.
I'll let you Brits unpack all that and let it rattle around in the old nut for a tick.

Like the knee pads, where are they from?

Thanks

I think it was a part of a demo kit for one of those robot vacuum cleaners. I was in a friends garage. I use those interlocking closed cell foam mats when I'm home for the same thing. It makes a little easier on these old knees and keeps the cold from seeping up through that concrete.

Well today, my twinmax arrived and I took the plunge on trying to balance the throttle bodies on the bike. Turns out it was ridiculously easy to do (thanks to all who posted info on this forum and also on you tube). I really have to get over my apprehension of all thing mechanical, so far they've all been easier than I thought.

Anyway, after quite a few turns of the cable (I was a long way out) I now have that smooth turbine like engine back. I thought on a few rides recently that the engine was getting a bit vibey and so that's what led me to this twin max purchase. Highly recommended and worth doing.

Is there a known issue with the throttle bodies on our bike? My bike is new, curious if there is there something I should I keep an eye out for.

Discovered what BMW cram into their little symbols window.

My R Nine T shows a spanner for when the service is due, cruise control activation and a petrol pump when the tank is low. These rotate in succession when the warning is needed.

To add to the symbols it was cold enough yesterday morning to show a snowflake despite it being the end of April.
