    Found another Wisconsin Rustic Road. It's not an exciting picture but it was a beautiful day at around 50 degrees!

    I only saw 2 bikes and a trike (One was a K-bike) in 2 1/2 hours. I guess it was too cold again.

    I added some lights to my 2018 Ralley. Pretty happy with it. Riders in our group said I was super visible without being blinding or obnoxious. The asymmetrical set up is eye-catching. IMG_6068.jpg IMG_6069.jpg IMG_6070.jpg IMG_6072.jpg

    Great looking and unique set up Matt! I'll be zipping right by that spot in Campo today at about 11am. Now to pop over to your website and finish buying those gloves that are in the shopping cart. Cheers!

    That looks great! Do you have a detailed photo of the bracket you used for the light on your left engine guard?
    Unfortunately my bike keeps taking naps on the left side (stupid side stand :lol3 ) so that light would be toast for me.

    Well, you convinced me finally, just ordered an 11 pack of cans off Amazon for $84.99 to split with a buddy. With tax it comes to $8.27 a can!

    Changed the rear tire on my brother's GSA. That Continental TrailAttack3 was a bear to get off, so in order to avoid the same spooning the new one on, out came the zip ties and like magic it went well...
    The old one could stand up unsupported on it's own. :umph

    I rolled my bike off the trailer when loading it back up after the bdr. Broke a mirror and wind screen mount. The bdr wouldn’t let me walk away scratch free I guess.

    Just got word from dealer service dept that BMW is authorizing fuel pump replacement on my '09 GSA. In already for the fuel strip replacement, they had found a rear wheel flange bulliten to replace that. What a country! Buy 10 yr old used and get new parts put in by dealer on mfg's dime.

    I always like riding a few of them when I'm up that way. No where near doing the 120+ for the badge

    I added some crashbar bags, and took the bike for a ride. They hold on tight (for now at least) :D and carry my compressor on one side and puncture kit plus some extras on the other.
    Anyone has experiences to share with such bags?

    Today I received a used heated Corbin seat in the mail. I had one on my R1100GS that I loved. Hoping I’ll like this one as much.

    Which leads me to a question:

    Is there an accessory fuse box thingy you guys like? I’ve got more things wired to the battery than I’d like already so I’d like to come up with a solution to that when I wire in the seat. This is for my ‘07 GSA.

    I broke down and replaced the left cam shaft tensioner on my R1100GS and then took a quick ride through the beginning of the Autumn leaves to one of the few remaining country stores in middle TN for the elusive fried bologna sandwich! 1st photo outside of store, 2nd inside at the pot belly stove and 3rd route getting there. master gen store 1 6inch.jpg country store inside 6inch.jpg 10-22-20 TN autumn leaves.jpg

    Last week I installed some Machine Art cylinder head guards. Today I got home from work with my left leg/foot covered in oil.
    Rear stud snapped off! I was careful and used my torque wrench during install. This was the 3rd ride :hmmmmm
