Foggy Christmas Shopping on the Beemer

Needed to do a spot of Christmas shopping yesterday and it seemed like a good idea to do it by bike. The R100RS has panniers so what better machine for the job.

The conditions were foggy and damp and the road greasy. The ride served as a timely reminder that the handling of the Beemer needs some tuning. I'm not sure I've owned a bike before with such a disparity between horsepower and handling capability. I'm certain this can be significantly improved. A pair of new shocks are on the shopping list and a fork service is needed. Does anyone have recommendations for the best tyre combo?

The BMW is getting close to how I want it
but the handling certainly needs tweaking.
