    B1A63954-7D11-4609-BACB-BF33F9F0B6A2.jpeg Today ... I pulled off another long ride. Left Caen, Normandy at 04:30 am and just arrived at the place were I stay close to Madrid at 11:00 pm... another 850 miles, pilot and machine still in one piece. Next Andalusia.:rofl
    On my way back snapped this picture while filling up the gas tank, last one to get my final 300 km.
    The name is “Pancorvo pass” Sierras behind / surrounding the gas station were the site of a battle in the 800’s
    Random thoughts...
    For a 27 year old motorcycle the R100R performs flawlessly... traveling on these boxers long distances is something...
    Yes I do a lot of preventive maintenance... I guess is the price we pay.
    With the stock 40 mm carbs (EU models):
    At 100 km per hour / 4000 rpm’s: gets 20 km x liter ( about 46 mpg)
    At 110 to 115 km per hour 4200 / 4400: 17 to 19
    GPS I’ve had my fights with it! I study/carry paper maps and route sheets I create, today when the electronic device went berserk my other tools aided me to be back on track. I don’ like relying on the gps solely... recipe for disaster.
    Logic / common sense will help never forget that.
    This time of the year daylight gives the chance to ride longer.
    Godspeed

    Hard to believe the R100R is 27 years old. And it's the modern airhead. Still one of best motorcycles I've ever owned or ridden.

    I woke up early today with my mind set to ride to Malaga...today’s going to be a great day, not only because is my Birthday, I will spend it with my sister... of course she doesn’t know I am coming... not even that I am in Europe :wings
    Is going to be a surprise, that can go two different ways... I ring the bell or call her on the phone to come and open the door :jack
    After calling me some names... like “crazy gringo or something... she will settle and ask what do I want to eat... if I am extra lucky she might even bake something!
    Here on my way to Malaga this morning. CA4CE879-4ADB-41AD-9CD2-787F7163C9C1.jpeg

    Can you tell us a little about the oil coolers you have in place there? Very neat.

    :-):-)
    If we are talking about the R100R cooler in this case is the stock that came with the bike; same as US models.
    More questions just shoot and I will try answering.:-)

    2322893E-5EFD-4A52-A645-631EDFB09754.jpeg Here’s a pic from today about halfway mileage-wise of day one in a little trip planned through NB, Quebec, New Hampshire and Maine. At least it wasn’t raining. Good times... bonus points for creative usage of krauser case to prevent bike from flipping over backwards...
