    ...and sorry if my response was so short. rough day at the office and was trying to be responsive to people here but also elsewhere. I haven't had a day off since getting back from my trip. Today's my 3rd 6AM-9PM day in a row and I'm exhausted.

    If it makes you feel any better, I found your tire changing video very entertaining; it made me laugh out loud. :jack
    After watching it, I totally support your taking it to a shop to have the pros go at it.

    Bring it to me in Northern VA. I will teach you. It is not hard. It is just technique. Plus an excuse for a little road trip.

    Rode it! Up Phantom fullsizeoutput_2cb.jpeg Canyon over Steel Bridge to Victor. One more week and fall colors should be optimum!

    LOL, you might get a full house soon enough. ;-)

    I "landed" in St. Cloud today ... will head to Duluth tomorrow morning and then see how I'll continue. Of course, it's supposed to have thunderstorms on Thursday in the Duluth area, so I might just do a short visit at Aerostitch and then move on South. Undecided right now, will decide tomorrow.

    Stop at Aerostich and just around the corner is a pretty damn good bbq joint worthy of a lunch stop.

    Emailed Dynamic Motorrad the signal bulbs on my 2017 BMW R1200GS, installed in May of 2018, have behaved flawlessly till recently. After sitting for a traffic light cycle the turn signals start to fast flash and the light code flashes on my dash. Maybe it needs a resistor after all.

    If they worked till now they are most likely loose.
    They wouldn't have worked this long if they needed a resistor.

    Cee Bailey tall. I love the shield, extremely hard and difficult to scratch. I believe they are out of business now. Too bad.

    Usually no body on it either! Yesterday much heavier than normal. Ran into a large group of 4-wheelers headed south.

    Thought so. Yes, they were good windshields, bummer that they are out of business.
