Heidenau rear tyre (tire ?) pressure.

I fitted the Heudenau 150/70R17 rear to my bike today. On the sidewall it states maximum pressure is 36 psi.

This is OK for the likes of skinny Jaumev but for a fat boy like me with a passenger and luggage I need 42 psi.

I E-mailed Heidenau in Germany and they replied thus: (Translated by Google)

If you are traveling with a passenger and luggage, you should increase the air pressure to 42 PSI to 44PSI as the vehicle manufacturer recommends.

We have changed the specification on the tire wall at the current production also accordingly.


Now that is progress.....

Ambient temps have very little to do with whether the fan cycles on/off - its all about whether you're stopped or moving. I bet the fan cycles in 0-deg weather if you're sitting long enough. It will certainly cycle the fan more in July, but the difference will probably be slight - it will run when you're in traffic and go off when you're moving on the road.

I've never thought my S10 "cooks" my left leg at all (the heat seems mostly outboard), but this is probably an individual perception thing and what your riding gear is. The S10 has the best cockpit heat control of any fully-faired bike I've ever owned.

Yeah... What he said.

And I live in deep South Texas. Honestly, I can't for the life of me see how anyone can say the "radiator fan cooks my left leg at stoplights..." I've owned a ton of bikes, both air- and liquid-cooled, and I can recall a bunch that literally *ROASTED* me, and not just at a standstill. OTOH, the Super Ténéré is one of the coolest, least heat-intrusive bikes I've ever owned, and that surprised me given it's literally fully-faired and has two pistons the size of coffee cans banging up around in there. Even when we had temps well into the 100's this past summer I found it comfortable, fan on or not. And that's with full ATGATT or just blue jeans... Doesn't matter.

Besides, even if someone finds what little heat blows on their leg when the fan is on uncomfortable, just how long is it on? 30 seconds? How long is the stoplight?

Crikey! It's a motorcycle... Not a limo.

Ditto. All that driveline lash bothers more than the heat.

I agree and I live in Texas where it can get pretty darn warm in the summer time.

2013 s10!

Just came back from the Dealer here, Blackfoot Motorsports and saw a new 2013 S10 in a matt grey color. Not bad but I think I like my blue better.

Local dealership here just got a matte grey one as well. I haven't made it over to see it yet.

In other news...











I've got a little project for tomorrow!

By the look on your face and the woody I'd say there's a happy ending in there soon. Ewwwww.

I was going to make some big pen!s joke in response, but the fact of the matter is, their is a mighty odd shadow in that picture, of which i didnt previously notice, and I'm going to simply deny your claim to wood, and carry on with my day.

Of course, considering the fact that I'm wearing my work uniform in this shot, I'm now wondering how much of my day to day stuff looks like I've got a raging boner.

I think there was a Seinfeld episode with pants like these.
