Dead Beemer at the side of the road, stinkin' to high Heaven..
Yup. 1st was apparently mung in the ignition switch, no lights, power, nuthin' Hosed out with contact cleaner, must have been enough to get through the lock to the real switch below. OK ever since.
Fuel pump went out about 40 miles south of home in May, 5K ago, trailered, and Paul Glaves taught me a trick to resurect the fuel pump, which worked fine until last night. Shiney new one will go in this weekend. Fingers crossed... I'm wearing out my friends, especially those who ride HD...
Here's my 2006 R1150GSA with 42k miles on it
Recently finished the Alaska leg of my North American Tour. Here are a few photos from the trip so far.
Along the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, we encountered so snowy spots that a little persistence, leg muscles, and determination saw us through.
The bike decided to follow the rut, while I took another line, resulting in a broken leg. This is Death Valley. I had to ride about 40 miles to the pavement, and another 40 to the hotel before getting to the doctor the next morning.
My girlfriend joined me for the Alaska leg. This is us on the Dempster Highway just south on the Arctic Circle, which we didn't make due to the road being washed out. :(
