Saying hello

My first BMW was a 1984 R80ST that I purchased in 2008. I still have it and have added 7 others since, my latest a 2003 K1200GT. I brought it home in mid-September and shortly after discovered side play in the rear wheel. I came here looking for information on worn bearings in the final drive. Trying to decide if I fix it myself or send it out.

Welcome to the site.

As for your photos you shouldn't have a problem if the file size is around 500kb or less. If they are over 1mb you will often get them rejected. Just resize them if necessary and try again.

Re: Saying hello

Thanks for the tip on the photo size. I was able to upload some. The bike has 44,360 miles on it. For aftermarket stuff it has a Technik windshield, Two Brothers exhaust, and a BoosterPlug. There are some scratches on the right side fairing and the colored case covers were replaced by plain black case covers because of scratches on them. I live in Alaska and I bought it from a friend in Washington. When I registered it I discovered that the first owner was from Alaska also, so the motorcycle is home again :-)
