Howdy, well this is my 4th BMW, my K75 was too top heavy for these old knees and the 310 is exactly what I hoped for.

It's light, handles well, adequate power and excellent mileage. I've added a headlight modulator, air horn and rear rack and just finished breaking it in on 100 mile rides on PCH and Lake Hughes Road.

The bike looks well made and is a pleasure to look at and I am liking everything about it so far.

I've had an R90S, a /5 and a souped up K75 with over 90HP that went like the proverbial bat out of ****. I am satisfied with the power of the 310 and frankly my joy of riding motorcycles has returned with a passion.

The K75 was a little tough at low speeds, top heavy especially with a full 5.5 gal. tank and the 310 is a dream on surface streets and parking lots.

Its taking a while for me to get used to getting it in neutral but is is better when warmed up and filling the tank is a challenge at first but the controls are intelligently placed and I am happy so far.

? I'm confused (not an altogether unusual occurrence), but how is filling the tank a challenge?
I am just guessing, but maybe the pump nozzles have that safety feature with the collar that has to be depressed
in order for the gas to flow. Heard of that issue before for motorcycles, hard to fill it right up, and it turns into a
two hand operation.

I ran into that yesterday. Took me a while to figure out you have to pull some widget on the fuel nozzle so it will work. Not too bad once you figure out the trick.

I find that the rubber collar has to be puled back and the nozzle itself has to be accurately in the fuel filler and not to pump too fast as it will spray out if not careful.

Been fueling BMW's for nearly 30 years with no problem...

My only challenge is the 'biting point' of the clutch. All else great.

It is not as forgiving as my F650CS. I am sure the other drivers heard me cursing when I dumped the clutch multiple times today.

Cheers!
