Winter Prep or service recommendations for GS's based in San Diego, CA
 
As the rest of the country hits/braces for freeezing, I'm wondering if I should be doing anything special for our 80 degrees, crystal blue sky, winter days ahead. :rofl

3,600+ posts about the new 2013...:clap

Maybe it's time to upgrade that 1999 BMW GS1100R to a 2013?

That should keep you occupied until "Spring" arrives.

You sure these aren't the PRICE PER LITER, as in Canada?
Was SOOOOOOOOOO glad to return to the U.S. after visiting AB and BC!:clap

You have to change out the corona in your side pannier for Dos Equis. That should have been done in October. I can't believe you waited so long.

I escaped from San Diego 17 years ago and now can't even visit the city without a feeling of disgust. Smog, impersonal strangers, taggers, asshat drivers, nearly everything paved and visiting the mall passes as recreation for a large chunk of the population, crowds and traffic everywhere you go. Every day the same as the one before except for the two weeks called spring before the green turns brown for the other 50 weeks.

No thanks!

Yes. Move away...your state is broke. You'll be paying more taxes soon.

Oh, and change your oil to the winter blend to match your fuel.:lol3

Another tough day. 85 degrees's, blue skies, and just rode the GS to p/u a 6pk w shorts here in SD, CA.

Any additional comments on how to prep a GS for a SD winter?

Loved last year's comments (including the FU's)!!:clap:freaky

Dearest shit head,


you need a good few weeks of teens to kill the bugs

Change out the summer air for winter air in your tires and top off your blinker fluid. I went riding for a short burst today. It was dry and all the snow we had last week melted. I think it was 28 *F.

Really??? In all your years living here you never rode in Eastern San Diego County? Highways 76 and 78? Palomar Mountain with 10 plus miles of 250 to 300 degree sweepers?? Mesa Grande Road, Julian, Wynola Road, Hwy 78 to Borrego Springs?? The back road S22 out of Borrego Springs, Warner Hot Springs?? Sage road to Hemet?? All of this is rideable at least 50 weekends out of the year. Some years we can ride it 52 weekends! Every weekend I meet my riding buds at Pala Casino gas station this is our San Diego playground. 250 to 300 miles before I get home. Funny but the most traffic is other bikes, don't see any mall queens hanging around, the asphalt is always dark gray and the mountain color is secondary to seeing the next twistie coming up soon. Always wear the tread off the sides of my tires before the center is gone. What's not to like about San Diego? My favorite place to be on ride days! Sure hope you found a happy place to live too.:clap
