He would also make a detailed installation video, making it easier for everyone else.
I'd rather buy another bike than outfit my GSA for IBA Rallies. It's a serious commitment these riders do for the sport and I think it's awesome just not for me.
Maybe a Flir with a wireless feed to a HUD display on the helmet face shield....
Indeed it is the old Shell Refinery, as was, on The Esplanade...
....would be nice if the display unit was IP65+
Went for an awesome ride Sunday through the beautiful Colorado mountains. After the ride, headed back into Golden for one of these:
While there several people were trying to change a tire on a Tacoma. They couldn't lower the spare as the cables were broken and after about 30 minutes I walked over, inspected the tire and said I can fix it. They looked at me in my motorcycle gear like I was nuts. Pulled out the Dynaplug kit and pump, pulled the nail, patched the tire and in 15 minutes they had 40PSI and got a free one of the picture above. The ADV crew may look goofy on their silly, farkled bikes and gear from head to toe, but we don't screw around in being prepared.
That's awesome. I just bought that pump on sale at cycle gear this weekend for $29. Good to see it's capable
Don't care. It was a random example. There are plenty to choose from that are.
the Amazon link shows the monitor being mounted under the seat anyway, probably more for initial setup rather than minute to minute monitoring. But you could probably find a way to mount it in your view. But some of the units I’ve looked at are very hard to see in direct sunlight.
Had a similar experience this past June in Nova Scotia. Guy on a Honda VFR had a nail in his rear tire. He had no patch kit or pump. In 15 minutes had his tire pumped to 30 pound to get him to the Honda dealer 10 miles down the road. When he thanked me he gave me his card. Turns out he was a RCMP officer
Glad I helped him and now have a friend in Toronto
I need to do this on my 09 GSA with 50K miles. No maintenance over 10 years except to change rear oil.
On my way to Tuesday breakfast with friends.
My Bessy decided to join the Navy. She blew a seal.
Oil everywhere. Trailer time.
Pics after breakfast.

PS: Thanks @Heather_B for the photo.
Time to start a new build thread :)
Where'd the cylinders go?
Forgot to take pictures, but mounted and balanced my first tire (rear tire on a 2016 GS). Took me nearly 4hrs because I'm a noob, took some time to figure out how much force to apply to the irons, poor balancing technique, etc., but got it figured out!
Still have to tackle the front though.
When you get to the front, & any tire for that matter, be sure the opposing side is in the valley of the rim before levering the bead over. It makes life oh so much easier.
And congrats on gettin' it done yourself.
That's the new 'E' model. Uses same recharging station as the Tesla. Guess they'll have to put recharging stations at Starbucks now...............:)
Wood clamps kick ass at keeping that bead in the valley when your peeling the other end over the rim.
Sure enough one of the rear seals. Possibly one that I didn't change while I did the clutch replace.
Note to self- every time I have the clutch off. Do all the seals.
I won't be able to look at this until I return from a dirt bike trip with my son. About a week.
Almost certainly the vibration damper seal. That is the only one I would consider changing proactively.
