Planning? or Jamming?

I am "planning" a couple week solo ride in California leaving soon. I've been driving myself a little nuts trying to map out routes, hotels, campgrounds, etc. I am equally drawn to getting on my bike...

Just kidding. I have read every page of your RR, and, like so many others have remarked, loved living it with you (all the more, since I wasn't the one being eaten by mosquitos). So, if your "Year on...

Sooty buildup on carb nipple leading to charcoal canister

I cleaned the carb on my DR650 1500 miles ago. It was running rough yesterday so I took the carb off and the only issue was the nipple to the charcoal canister (CA model) was covered with black soot...

Promo Code, Not Hardware Discount

Yikes! Just a little confused here.

Air B and B

Yeah, that's the problem with Couchsurfing - hosts aren't particularly motivated. On Airbnb a host is penalized for not responding within 24 hours. I've had MUCH better luck with them.
