    No mention of them giving up their luggage though.

    Tony, I'd like to hear some details on the TAT ride, but it sounds like you're going to have a full house

    NO NO NO! Come go with us!
    We pair up and meet at the hotel each night for days re-plays and bullshit session.
    Pick you out a riding pal and go with us at your pace.

    No details/date yet but looking like late April thru May to avoid the rainy season.
    Mini Trail said something about the best time to go a few years ago.
    Gonna have to ask him again since he's done the old route and lives up that way.

    O.K. BMW guys, My bike wont take off from 1st gear at red lights, and revs high before accelarating in higher gears. Doesnt like any kinda hills? With my KTM this means slipping clutch, so what about the Beemer. Its at 175,000 thousand miles so mabye time for clutch redo? Any helpful tips and warm fuzzy tricks to extend life would be appreciated!!!:evil Also leaking oil and didnt used too so any ideas? Thanks beemer studs! :freaky

    Isnt that 75K and not 175K....

    Sounds like clutch. If so. Is that a standard wet clutch like most bikes? Understand we are dirt bike guys are look at manual only as a last resort.... and sometime not even then...

    Holy Cow Phil,
    Do a bit of search on the interwebs for yourself.
    I'm seeing anything from $2500-$3200 on just a few results.

    This CAN'T be right.


    More research,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
    More drinks,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

    I got BMW buddies and I'm gonna call them.

    OK,
    Call Terry Ware TONIGHT @ 205- 335- one five nine seven.

    John Cockrell say's with as many miles as you have, its recommended to replace/repair the slave cylinder along with this clutch job. Something about possibility of a oil leak messing up the new plates.
    You may already have this situation.
    Fluid level correct or low in reservoir?

    Call Terry ASAP for the correct answers your looking for and let us know.

    Not REALLY all that tough, but there is some shit involved that might make people skeered.

    HTSrocker did his (i sawr it) and could probably give some tips (like take it someplace and pay) or one of the local beemer guys may need some side money for Christmas (or Starbucks)

    Two words if you take it on yourself: FELT RING

    Good day riders,
    Just wondering if a mongrel ride is happening (in the works) before hunting season kicks off Thanksgiving ? Hopefully can get a couple dueler's into a Blackwater loop either sat/17th or sun/18th, possibly camp on Hurricane or Karick lake ??
    Does anyone know the rider who rode the XR650L to Speck/Trot ? Would like to yap at him concerning possible tire selection for majority road use and bastion of back-up parts I possess in case he breaks something or looks to modify/shave some weight off that beast.

    What's up guys. New comer here. From the area, been away for awhile. Just moved back here from NC.
    Sold my 650r and now just have the 250R. Looking to hit some trails. Any local to the Pace area?

    Always up for a get-together too.

    JP - yea this is the last weekend for awhile before GUN season starts.
    I am planning some BW riding next Saturday morning...starting from Karick Lake... that a ways off so we will see..

    I have never ridden BW during hunting season... how is it out there with the hunter roaming around...

    BTW thanks to all you veterans out there.. hope you have a good day.

    Yes welcome to the area.
    Read your ride report and like your writing style.
    Only fella that I can think of that approachs your outlook on riding fun is Rearview.
    Luke left us years ago and now looks like we again have a fella that can fill that personality gap.

    I join Vic on thanking our Veterans on this day.
    Somehow, this holiday has been combined into a day of shopping sales.
