Got new tires put on this weekend.
Finished prepping for the Senior Butt Rally starting on the 22nd. No I'm not a senior, but my teamate is.
Excellent. We really appreciate the business and support!

Couple weeks ago attended XLADV's High Sierra and had an absolute blast! Loving my new off road set up.
This is like a scene out of the first Mad Max movie. Nice.
Got my GS-911 today. Took a few min to set up. Has a lot of features that I won’t use yet but I cleared my service reminder so happy with that. Went in on it with my dad so we split the cost. Only thing makes it tough is on the 2019 the obd port is on right side cover so you need a tool to open it and I don’t always carry tools. However I will have to carry at least that one Torx bit now
BDCW Helopad with Givi 30L case.
I'm trying a lighter weight and lower profile solution to the pillion seat with my bigger top case.
It wouldn't take long to switch it all back for when I go on long trips and need the extra capacity - which is once a year.
I tried these before the BDCW solution and they don't quite meet my needs.
One is the Nelson-Rigg pillion bag which is pretty nice and roomy.
The other is the official BMW GSA pillion bag. It's a very nice unit and matches the tank bag perfectly.
Both work best when mounted on the pillion seat. The straps and buckles work better with the extra seat height and they are contoured to sit on the seat.
I think I will sell them.
Good news! If you are running the stock seats, the required torx is on the bottom of your passenger seat.
What?? I gotta look more closely!! Thanks man
I filled my 04 GSA up with non alchohol 91 octane pure gas. Then rode it around a little.
Installed aux lights, mostly looking for DRL/oncoming-driver viz but first impressions in the dooryard tonight suggest they may also be worthy improvement to my own field of view as well. Went small but with the pre-built harness have the potential for easily swapping out lights.
Specs: SW-Motech mount kit (which specifically says NEVER EVER EVER mount the lights below the bar, but I did for now so they provide less wash to the blinkers and more delta from the headlights proper); 2" modular LED 10W, 30deg, 900 lumen lights, and LED wiring harness, both from superbrightleds.com. Harness is robust, massively long (for ATVs, cars I guess) but easy; thought about direct into ignition and high beams but I'm not that patient and more than likely to f- it up; I'll deal with battery drain potential for now. If I were more patient I would also cut down some of the excess wiring but it fits under the seat/tank so I'm good.
Only thing remaining is buy and mount a handlebar switch - the harness comes with an LED-lit solid toggle but made for a dashboard drop-in, and not waterproof/sealed.
First dark pic is with highbeams on (I think); second was a check of blinker viz, and I'm playing with down angle of the aux lights so they appear uneven. I'm pretty happy already.
The one that fits that cover is in the reversible screwdriver. If it's not a torx, yank it out and flip it around.
It is on that same side for all Wetheads and Shiftheads. The tool is under the seat.
Still waiting for that 1250 vid!
Still waiting on BMW to release the service DVD so I can validate the torques.
Noice - I hadn't heard of that particular event - how was it? Any gpx tracks by chance? How difficult is the terrain?
How long does it normally take the 2020 are already out
Not this long. Sadly I may be forced to use the Wethead torque values.
They probably aren’t diff but prob not a good idea. It sucks that the are basically making you go to them for maintenance since they are not providing a service manual.
