Choosing the right motorcycle care and maintenance are absolutely crucial for a safe long term motorcycle journey. Below you will find my recommendations
I decided to have a small air compressor with me in case of flat tires. Once I managed to attach the pump to the tire, I had the problem to get the pump starting. I don’t know exactly why the BMW made such problems with this device. I had the same issue with charging my mobile phone actually.
Only when switching off and on the ignition for a couple of time the compressor would be working. It gave me some headache the first time but got used to it after a while and then the compressor works well.
Additionally, I always had a normal bicycle pump with me too.
