The new BMW HP4 sees its world premiere in 2012 and is a continuation of BMW Motorrad's HP model series founded in 2005. After the boxer models HP2 Enduro, HP2 Megamoto and HP2 Sport, the BMW HP4 is the first 4-cylinder motorcycle in the HP family.
The HP label stands for high performance, and the HP4 once again embodies outstanding handling, power and riding dynamics. But it also reflects the use of extremely high-quality materials and intelligent technology, carefully conceived down to the last detail.
BMW High Performance motorcycles are truly outstanding: exclusive and authentic, they will always remain relatively rare. This applies equally to the new BMW HP4.
This high quality set of OES frame sliders fit the 2006-2012 Yamaha FJR-1300 (both A & AE models). These sliders have high impact strength and use 6061T6 aluminum inserts which are pressed in. Without the inserts, the engine mount screws would need to be tightened on a regular basis. High strength, rust-resistant mounting screws are included with this set. Absolutely no fairing modifications are required to install.
Letting your bike sit in the garage and going out to start it once a month to keep the battery charged is NOT good for your battery or your motorcycle. Every motorcycle owner should have a battery charger, so why not buy one from us??

Dream Ride 2013 is back and better than ever!! Since its inception in 2001, Dream Ride has donated over $1,725,000 to help Special Olympics, and its popularity has grown exponentially. Last year’s Dream Ride attracted car and motorcycle enthusiasts from all over Canada and the Eastern Seaboard to unite in Connecticut for one important cause. For those unfamiliar with Special Olympics, the organization prides itself on fostering lifelong development of children and adults with intellectual disabilities.
So what can we do as bikers to make ourselves more visible out there in this harrowing environment? Tail lights on some motorcycles are pitiful in the daytime and are not much better in the dark. It seems some motorcycle designers have succumbed to styling rather than safety. How then are we going to keep from getting run the heck over? It all comes back to that visibility thing.
