    Currently all of the instructors are part time. Some of them are LEO's and some of the LEO's are motor.

    Some instructors work 9-5 while others have more flexible work schedules.

    I was not one of your instructors during the rally but I was there.

    Cheers!

    Looks like you had a great time in in the PC's class, riding around with Aaron. He and Roberto are amazing riders and trainers! We are big fans of the BMW Performance Center and their training. We totally encourage you to go and get more training with them. No matter which training you do, it will carry through to all of your riding, on-road and off!

    The course is tremendously helpful. The instructors are marvelous, and the knowledge they impart very useful.

    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.
