Looking for knobblies and panniers for my new bike. (I got a special deal: included was a colour coded topbox and tankbag.)
Any technical guru's out there lurking?
Would unleaded be detrimental to the performance?

MadnohB I've always admired your technical replies. Could either you or BMWfanatic point me in the right direction? (and by that I dont mean the tar road. As you can see lane splitting or staying ahead of the traffic could prove difficult.)

I know it's a 2009 but the model could be a grey import Smile

Dont think you need side panniers - you already have the back pannier and front pannier. I would however get rid of the yellow pipe crossing in front of the front wheel - would probably foul the knobblies. Would also go for very small knobblies so as not to chafe the front fork through.

Smile That could have a negative effect on my 5 year / 100,000 km warranty, in addition to that my obligatory insurance premium would be increased since this asset was bought on installment sale. I think I should rather save up and buy proper boots as my ticks are wearing thin.

Once you have learnt how to stay upright and ride to a certain extent it might be a good idee to upgrade to a Hardley Driveable - as they are sold standard with training wheels.
Once the training wheels can come off you can then upgrade to a 650 and so forth - then the warrantee on this little roustabout should not be implicated and you can pas it on to your first grandchild.
