    I decided to change the brake pads, and I found an opportunity to yell at some kids to get off my lawn.

    I washed the bike yesterday and just use my jet washer to blast any dirt in there and then use the air blower to dry it. Not too bad.

    Monday was National Ride to Work Day. My commute is long but lame, it ended up being a 160 mile round trip once I visited my machine shop too. Coffee stop along the way. ride to work 2.jpg

    Haven't done too much, but I did just cross 10k miles. The old Anakee 3 is finally worn down to the point of needing replacement. I'll probably run another one, just because it did well enough and the front's still going strong.

    Next, depending on the reviews, I may go with the Anakee Wild - I don't do enough off-road yet to justify a more aggressive tire, though I may regret that on our honeymoon. We'll see.

    Changed the oil and valve adjustment. I was surprised to see two exhaust valves were out of spec. Adjusted, all done.

    Adjusted the rocker arm endplay on the 2008, using Ted Porter's guide. www.r1200gs.info/howto/end-play.html

    They were in specification but the 2008 valve train was so much h noisier than the 2011. Wow, what a huge difference that made (clatter, not performance). Now I have to do the 2011.

    The "in specification" range of .05 to .40 is astoundingly large.

    Rode up state hwy 145 from Cortez, Colorado past the quiant little town of Rico. Took FR535 that's just 5 miles north of town. Rode this beautiful FR to w/I 1 mile of Dunton hot springs. Turned on FR161 that leads to Ground Hog lake. Stopped for lunch at Burro Bridge campground. A cool 9500 ft elevation. 64°f. 20190620_144544.jpg 20190620_144544.jpg 20190620_140301.jpg 20190620_144546.jpg 20190620_140301.jpg

    There is no endplay adjustment on a Camhead.
