I was just readjusting that rod yesterday,pedal was down a bit. May not be exactly to BMW specs now but....wiggle wiggle, who needs instructions but I have read the manual before.

But Eh....linked brakes we BMW riders are not supposed to use the rear pedal. Unless riding the shingles of course. Out the door better go find some of that now that I washed my bike.Coffee in Kaslo??? Lots of old dolls in Nakusp/New Denver yesterday, may be something going on in Kaslo???
Brakes all sorted now, just gotta get out and test/check them but new fluid and proper adjustment we should have no issues now x fingers.

The decks cleared of all the snow now bro?

Snow on deck ???Only snow these days is from the Cottonwoods.

Eh....met a Kiwi on the road. Well right at the junction where it turns to shingles, had to stop and investigate why the gravel was wet. A little taste and Calcium Chloride.

He was coming the other way and had heard of you guys. I don't think he spends too much time on here so wasn't up to the latest news. I think he will now. Talking food again.......I sent him for Poutine in Revelstoke. A little treat for him after all he had some of the right stickers on his bags....in Canadian French.

That's for the other Kiwis on the road to Alaska.....say Hi to Clint, heading to Inuvik and Alaska.

Arh that would be Barb (and Victor) from Alaska Leather, very very cool people and made the start of our trip a great experience.

They lent us their shed to do the bike work ... with a heated floor ... that more than we have in our house

But the month would be 10 days ...... close enough I spose , on the 10th day we were there we rode to Homer for a break from setting up having done everything fitting up and fitting out the bikes.

Don't think NZ could grind to a halt you guys are sure tough and mechanically crafty.

He is an AmericanoKiwi,18 years in New Jersey,could almost have told from the accent but the NZ sticker gave him away first.They speak funny in NJ too....that's fine by me, we all do.

But I sure told him which Ice Cream brand to look up when he goes back down there for a visit.
