I thought we only cleaned these bikes when we get caught in a rainstorm?
Not a damn thing, Just relaxing at the Daughter's Mini House for Father's Day-- New Grandbabys as well. Bikes can wait a day
Installed an SC project exhaust from my ‘16 R1200R I had laying around. Had to fab up a bracket, that I’ll paint it or powder coat soon. But overall it popped on perfect.
Also made up some 3m clear vinyl tank pieces. My bike came with the clear brushed aluminum tank. But after 3 weeks already the clearcoat is starting to haze up from my knees . First time doing this vinyl stuff came out okayyy ish might try it again some point.
Installed a new Telelever ball joint gaiter on my 2010 cam head GS.
Installed one from BBY 2 years ago but the high UV down here in Tassie caused it to perish.
See how long this one lasts.
$50 from Munich Motorcycles in Perth OZ,
Still works out cheaper than buying the whole ball joint from BM at $220.
@scottdc Familiar route...
Went from this...
Nothing broken, nothing lost, no swearing, no blood.
Call me King of the Tools.
Well A bunch!
We road 683 miles yesterday to get home from Lebanon TN. And we also road 700 miles to get there on Thursday.
Patricia on her Kawasaki Vulcan 650 S, her Father who is 84 on his 16 RT, and me on my 17.5 GS.
Her father won Oldest Solo Rider at the 2019 BMW MOA Rally. I was so proud to be part of that and to see it. Patricia's birthday was Saturday.
And on Father's day to win an award was very cool for him. Retired Motorcycle Policeman. Marine. And a Great Father.
I made a memory that will be very cherished for many reasons.
I think I was parked next to you all Saturday morning at the LaQuinta Inn!
Nothing, but I have 2 blisters on my palms from riding my KTM for 100 miles of grueling, technical off road. That said, I did miss riding my GSA and felt bad about it...then it started to rain, a lot and hasn't stopped since Saturday night
Rode it. NC mtns.
You are King of the Tools - there ya go!!
You had 4 bolts to take out, put the ring and put new 4 longer bolts in (maybe even add 4 spacers underneath the ring) - if that doesn't make you King of the Tools then I don't know what does...
Didn't drop Rosie at the Authority Training from BMW's Performance Riding School :)
I did so well the instructor asked me to follow him around the full course and stay "right on my ass" and I did. We went tighter and tighter in 360 degree almost back to ass to back with our GSAs and I didn't drop her and kept up. What a blast! he and I went at it for 10 minutes like a dance. then the class was over. I should have asked him for a job after but maybe that's my ego talking. Now I want to go take the 3 day course.
PS: Thanks AltRider:
but my camera takes better photos: (unedited and I need to drop the highlights and exposure a bit)
Mid $300,000. But that's MRSP. Never pay that. Typically dealers mark class A motorhomes up 30%. Even then there is wiggle room.
Nice head turn! </instructor>
You really should call out the couple of times I was clearly 'crossed up' though. could have taken her deeper if I leaned with the bike. Only took out 1 cone, didn't drop or stall her once but that's mostly the bike. Boxers are so easy to lug and putt around at low speeds.
I really enjoyed both trainers were retired police officers and gladly called out the fact these were 20' radius light bulbs and the police do 16-17 foot radius bulbs all day on the RTP bikes so they were making it really easy on us According to one trainer, 15.6 feet radius is the record on an RTP.
Nice! I took the ferry to the Washington side, the to Astoria and back on 202 and Vernonia-Scappoose. Great route, I'll definitely do this loop again.
Just riding up north....
Got Rox risers added to the bike at the Rally. Tremendous difference especially standing at my height. (6'4")
He seemed to have had a long line of bikes to work on all weekend!
Bought one! Proud owner of a '17 R1200 GS Rallye
The aren't retired, they are both still active.
