Quick question:
Was this taken with that HRD process ?

The area between the spokes on the fron wheel is darker than the rest...

Once you've done a tar mountain pass you will believe me when I say 21" isn't a upgrade but a down grade for a bike well capable of both worlds. :mwink:

Sometimes, no tyre is good enough!  :ricky: I had to be pushed through by my brother who was riding my DR200 that incidently made it through!(Track running parallel to mine) :-[ I had to explain the merits of the DR's 21'' front wheel, full offroad rear tire, lighter weight, blah blah but he was'nt convinced.

Screen looks like it is the same as yours, MRA speed screen. It also has the touring spoiler which I took off.

Would be cool to hook up for a ride, although I have just traded in my XCountry for an XChallenge.

Howsit, I still have my screen from my XCountry that I would like to sell. It is the same screen that is on NAZM's bike. They are awesome screens and really suite the XCountry. I kept it when I traded the XCountry in, but now it does not fit on my XChallenge.

PM me if you are keen on it.

Whooo hooo!
I am now officially the owner of a 2008 BMW Xcountry...  :ricky: :ricky: :ricky:

Bike was just delivered!

one small problem though... when I pushed the bike into and turned around  in my garage, the wheels seem.. stiff, as if not freewheeling, or as if the brakes are holding it. Makes a squeeeeeeek sound when the wheels turn, but I can't figure out if it's at the front or back???

oh pleeeease tell me it's nothing serious..

anybody have any idea???

thanks

ps sorry for the bad quality, this is a cellphone pic...
Title: Re: Put your BMW X Country pics here!
Post by: N[]vA on July 02, 2009, 02:26:53 pm
probably the front and probably not to serious, ride it for 1-2km and use the brakes a fair deal.

If the bike stands for a while the disks get a lil bit of a rust/buildup on them should go away..... though before you go ride it spin the wheel and check the disk isnt warped or the wheel badly lined up
Title: Re: Put your BMW X Country pics here!
Post by: 1WayRay on July 02, 2009, 03:19:38 pm
Ride it a bit first (a few kilometers) to get the cobwebs off, then do as follows to check which wheel is being difficult ;

1. Put bike into Neutral with engine OFF,
2. Put the kickstand out (Down),
3. Standing on the left hand side of the bike, grab the rear right of the bike and pull up and towards you. This should lift the back wheel off the ground, balancing the bike on the sidestand.
4. You can then run the back wheel with your hand to see if it runs smoothly or if it is catching. (I usually just balance the bike against my legs and then lean over it to do this, although you may want somebody to help at first if you are not to confident)
 NB, this is also a nice way of putting chain lube onto the bikes chain.  :thumleft:

5. Once this is done, you can check the front wheel in a similar fashion. Stand on the the left of the bike and while the sidestand is down, pull back and towards you on the handlebars. This will lift the front wheel in the air while balancing the bike on the sidestand.

Good Luck, I hope it is all ok!  :thumleft:

I have a screen for the XCountry I am trying to sell if you decide you want one  :D
Title: Re: Put your BMW X Country pics here!
Post by: 63magic on July 02, 2009, 04:04:47 pm
aww thanks guys.. will see if I can rope in a slightly stronger friend in tonight to help with the checking..

ray, please hold that thought, at the moment my first priority is getting a crash bar.. but will let you know! In the meantime, could you pm me with a price please?

so if the wheel(s) wobbble, I need to get hold of the dealer that sold it to me? 3 month warranty...

thanks again for the advice.

cheers... ;D
Title: Re: Put your BMW X Country pics here!
Post by: N[]vA on July 02, 2009, 04:21:15 pm

Title: Re: Put your BMW X Country pics here!
Post by: 63magic on July 03, 2009, 07:24:44 am
hi guys

tried Ray's suggestion last night. the front wheel is not running free, seems the brake pad is either catching on the disc or I dunno.. there seems to be a a line running on the disc... back wheel is fine.

I have not ridden the bike yet, but have to take it for insurance inspection tomorrow morning. will see if the squeeek disappears, otherwise it goes back to the BMW dealer... bike is still under warranty from the factory (2008 model) as well as a separate 3 month warranty from the dealer so I will see..

you guys think i should put the registration number up in general and see if the previous owner is on the WD board?

thanks again, have a happy day!

hehehe kortgat here very happy with the swop!! >:D

on further inspection by the friendly Thinus at BMW Bavarian (NOT where I bought the bike from), it seems that the arm holding the front brake caliper is bent??? So one brake pad was completely worn down.. I felt the front brake grabbing a few times on the way there, nearly pitched myself over the handlebars...

so tomorrow I call the other dealer where I go the bike... whatever happened to pre-sales inspection???  ??? >:( :deal:

thanks, TG, the bike now feels GREAT!

thanks. These were mostly shot on a nikon d80 with a 12-24 lens, long exposures with a tripod. Not a pro... just for fun.

nice pics, Bessie!

HIJACK...

have you ever had problems with tankslappers on corrugations on gravel road? trying to figure out if it's my suspension setup or the tyres or inexperience or typical of the Xco?

sorry to hear you are selling her..

cheers

yeah especially that road between Solitaire S23.88758 E16.00461  and Walvisbay S22.95456 E14.51981...

some hectic tank slappin. in the dips...

the gravel is 'soft' so it makes thick ridges of a sand and stone mixture.

and inbetween the sinkplaat effect.

watlzing matilda they say....

but other than that... gravel is comfy.

Just got back from the beautiful and amazing Western Cape.
