    Love the look of that tire. Really wish that came with my bike so I could have tested it out.

    Be careful with this, I had a rear brake issue that BMW (and my dealer, who told BMW I had installed this Altrider brake pedal) would not honor under warranty. Very disappointing. I don't believe it had anything to do with the issue and if I had known they would be so unreasonable I would have taken the 30 seconds to remove it.

    After my 8500 mile tour around America, I gave it a much needed oil and final drive service and a bath.

    Valve check and annual brake fluid change will be done next week.

    Benn 1.jpg Threw the hard bags on and took Mrs Crashbar to Bennington VT for dinner Saturday. Took the backroads (from Boston) into NH and across 9, and then looped down 100 / 112 to rt 2 and then snippets of the tomato trail back home. I'm amazed by the versatility of this bike.

    Rode it... or more accurately, fled on it from the latest fires now hitting Sonoma County, CA. This is the 4th time in the past 4 years and the 2nd time this year we've been ordered / warned to evacuate because of fire. This time, I decided use the time we seemed to be getting to ride the bike to a friends house about 15 miles south of here here so it was one less thing I had to worry about should the fire continue burning this way. Then I went home and re-packed my go bag.

    I'm so tired of all this fire activity BS, but at least this time, I don't have to worry about whether or not my bike will be lost should the house start to burn. In 2017, the houses all around us were burnt to the ground. The last three times, the neighborhood didn't burn, but the anxiety of being evacuated and waiting to find out what happened is like reliving a nightmare that just won't stop.

    Thanks for the heads up. Had no issues with my rear brake so far and dont believe the Altrider Dualcontrol will change that.

    Applied ACF-50 while warm days last. Much easier to spray it properly when it's around 70 outside. Proper wash was a prerequisite.

    Pre-road trip visit to the one and only “Aerostich”... I love the fire escape entrance, lol.

    Such a tragedy. I lived and/or worked in Sonoma County a good bit in the late 90’s. I still have lots of friends that way. My friends daughter has been evacuated 3 times this year. She checks status of her house by watching the doorbell camera. She’s watched firefighters running by from that camera...

    Hope for the best for you and your neighbors.

    How much longer do you think the leaves will last?

    Thinking of heading up in two weeks.

    Snap, me too, my first GS or GSA in my case, a 2015 with just shy of 20K miles,
    120089684_3935182173164557_8304934877955997139_o.jpg

    I've not actually taken delivery yet, went to check it out and have a test drive, will collect it in a few days once paperwork is sorted and its changed into my name, down in Bangkok with my wife visiting family, when she flies home I'm riding home, approx. 1000km from Bangkok to where I live so will just take it easy and do it over 2 days.

    Not the first Touratech Rd guard I saw bypassed by a rock. The one I saw had a leaking radiator to boot, so it had to get temporarily plugged to stop leaking.

    Hard to say, some trees are already bright yellow or red and many are dropping all their leaves.
