    The stripes are plastic tape. Probably purchased from Amazon.

    I also put the stripes on my 450 for a little splash of color.

    Rumor has it someone who frequents this thread has a new bike and has not posted pics here yet! Don't make me re-post the pic your wife put on Facebook!

    You know who you are :ddog

    Kinda started over in the Maine thread and never left...

    It scratches a bunch of itches.:getiton


    Thinking about just a couple of finger sandwiches (with a knife so they can be divided up easily) instead of the traditional ham dinner today. You know, just so we can go ride the wheels off some more sooner.:lol3

    :ricky



    And since you brought it up...

    Very nice, but it appears you bought the last one in New England.

    Thanks, guys.

    Could be. There's a great deal on one in PA. We were this close >< to grabbing that one. PM me if you want the info.

    Planning a ride this coming Sunday, 27 April. The gathering place, once again, is MAX BMW in North Hampton, NH. Leaving the shop at 10:00 AM sharp. Full fuel tanks and empty bladders. The route is about 80 miles at backroad speeds.

    The route includes several dirt roads. These are dirt roads that passenger cars travel. Not class VI roads.

    Given it is Spring, some of these roads may be soft and muddy in lower areas. Street-only bikes may have a little difficulty with the entire route.

    Lunch destination is Peterborough, NH. There's the diner, Harlow's, and some other places to get lunch.

    Riders may disperse after eating lunch to make your own way home. :ricky My suggestion is to use your GPS to route shortest distance, allow dirt roads, avoid major highways.

    If I could make a suggestion to alter your trip only slightly, this is 10 min south of the Diner and is waaaaay better for lunch and especially dessert. Mmmmmm.... and for anyone who has never been, it can quickly become a go to destination for any weekend ride.

    That is a good place. Plenty of room for diningÂ…and ice cream! Probably a good destination for warmer weather. Are they open now?

    The ride this Sunday coincides with the Granite State BMW Riders lunch event at the diner. It allows any of the GSBMWR people from the Seacoast to join this ride over to Peterborough. It doesn't have to be a joint event or anything. It just happens to be convenient to pair up the two somewhat. :freaky

    Yes, they have been open for a few weeks. I didn't realize the GSBMWR event was at the diner, that makes a lot more sense then. Enjoy.

    you'll know a lot of peeps, and the coffee setup will be familiar. There's gonna be a good crew.

    In need of a paralever, with the boots would be good.

    We thought the crack on top, was just a crack, that potentially could be welded. Unfortunately, when taking the paralever off, we found a 3"x5" piece missing off the bottom.

    Details below, of the situation.

    Thanks!

    Hi!

    I'm on the road, and stuck in Connecticut.

    I am on my way back to Vermont, from a bicycle race in North Carolina.

    The driveshaft went in a big way - do they ever go in a small way - on the New Jersey Turnpike (always it's NJ where big things happen). Remind me to tell how I pushed the fully loaded bike 2 miles, including up over the
    elevated off ramp. Most aerobic exercise I've had in seven years!

    Just turned 99,000 miles on the bike.

    Looking for a used 2005-2007 driveshaft.

    If the U-Joints are gone, that's okay. We can rebuild it.

    My good fortune is my Lifeline Number 3 - where I'm staying - has a machine shop.

    My number for calls or text:

    eight oh two - 342 - 3881 (I'll delete this afterwards)

    or email me here on ADV

    or email me direct at mslizvt@yahoo.com.

    Thanks everyone!



    Liz

    Yeah. At 70mph, I got to the side of the road just before a service exit. I didn't have a heart attack while pushing the 800 pound bike up over the highway bridge and two miles. So that's good.

    Although, it was the best aerobic workout I've had in 7 years.


    :D
