Any warranty?

Assuming around 4 litre capacity, over 10% in under 1k miles? Only bike I've ever had that lost oil at that rate was a Chinese 250. Hard to accept it's the intended consumption of an engine from a premium brand.

Though my Mini (BMW engine) burns oil at close to that rate but I redline it everywhere Laughing


It's just out of warranty. Surprise that eh Rolling Eyes Especially when the average R9T seems to do something like 1500 hipster miles before being parked up for the winter so you'd never really get to see the level of oil usage between services.

It's 'within tolerance' from what I've read, which is that some of them will do a litre every 1000 miles. That's all the oilhead engined bikes not just R9T's - as I say, there aren't a lot of high mile R9T's out there yet.

Everything I've read suggests they calm down after 12,000km's but I've no idea why that would be really - run in procedure can't be that long. But we'll see - I've just ticked over 5100 miles on it now, so 12,000km = 7500 miles. Got about 3000 miles to find out, I guess.

It's not a major worry for me as it's not excessive per se, it's just annoying that the sight glass is only 500ml and, therefore, you're low on oil at the end of a good weekend's riding. Not exactly premium feeling, that - especially since my Enfield has done almost the same amount of mileage, gets an absolute shinning most of the time from me, and uses barely nothing. Good job BMW Thumbs Up

More to follow. Annoyingly had to cut my route home short, Fazer started misfiring again at the end of the first day. Pulled all the leads and boots at camp, trimmed off the worst looking one, no luck. Going to throw a second hand set at it.

Fingers crossed on a cheap fix.

I'm toying with the idea of booking tomorrow off and heading here since the weather is supposed to be so good:

Fantastic day on Saturday.

Looks fantastic. I can only sit and wait until the day I can 'afford' to move out of the shithole that is Thurrock Cum London and get some decent scenery right on the doorstep.




Yesterday Pigeon and I went on a 'last call for Summer 2020' type of ride setting off into the Essex countryside with Constable Country in our sights.

All packed up and ready to leave:

A boring 25 miles or so before the roads start to open up a bit and we hit the far side of Maldon, into Goldhangar and on towards Great Wigborough before crossing The Strood causeway onto Mersea Island where I was hoping to get some Native Oysters, but alas no such luck unless we wanted to wait around an hour - nope, some riding to do today, so we opted for cockles and crayfish tails whilst we watched paddle boarders get soggy Cool

We then chopped through a bit of Colchester and up towards Halstead aiming at Chappel Viaduct:

And then lastly headed through some smaller lanes to hit Constable Country itself, taking the B1068 towards Stoke By Nayland and onwards to Flatford Mill to see the Haywain.

At this point, we should have parked at the top and walked down, but other than a dead end sign there were no signs to say closed to vehicular traffic, so we took full advantage and just rode down the lane. Near the bottom, a busy-body came to tell us to turn around and go back to the parking area. I was playing polite with 'sorry got ear plugs in can't really hear you' whereas Pigeon just went 'screw this bitch, outta my way' and just launched it past her Laughing

The upshot was, cool shot of bike at The Haywain Thumbs Up

One last stop on the way back past Hanningfield for a break. Whilst there, a couple walking along past us had obviously gotten into some distress - the young girl had somehow lost her bra and other items of clothing that stopped everyone from seeing her boobies Shocked No pics though, soz.

Had a really good time and after a miserable couple of weeks at work, a day out on a motorcycle with yer mate in tow was a very welcome experience Cool

Early start for a ride out to Matlock Bath yesterday. Didn't really plan anything, just plugged it into Calimoto to see where it took me. A right random mix of roads as it turns out, quite a few of which I'd never ridden before (which is refreshing as I've lived next to the Peak District for 23 years). Sunrise wasn't quite as dramatic as my last ride, but it was still pleasant. Cool
