Here's a website link to a directory of all federal, state and local campgrounds, with GPS coordinates. The site is a little clunky to navigate but worth the effort.
One tip, either have a new big "O" ring on hand (the one on the access plate) or schedule enough time to let the old "O" ring dry out and rest for a day before you re-use it.
Also, you'll want to...
On my RS I mounted it on the flat bottom part of the gas tank on the left side behind the fairing. I used sticky-back dual lock (like industrial strength velcro) so I can unstick it and let it hang...
Tires make a big difference in turn in feel on these bikes. Some brands seem to be better than others and the tire wear profile makes a difference too. I know with new tires my RS feels like it wants...
Me too. It's sometimes a little stream-of-conscious but that's OK. It it is refreshingly different from the "I rode here and ate there" articles.
I can't count the number of times I've said that.
I just wrap masking tape around the clutch pushrod till it is a snug fit inside the spline.
Needs an apostrophe. Somewhere.
Dump the cable and get satellite.
Somewhere in Utah, after the Gillette rally and before the Top of the Rockies. And, yes it was hot.
Sometimes it's a wood shop, sometimes it's a car shop, sometimes it's a bike shop. It has heat, AC and great lights....
Here's the simple yet definitive answer:
The first number on the curve sign tells you what gear to be in. The bike should be "up on the cam," meaning 4500-5000 RPM.
That works for most BMW...
R1150RS - 72,217.
I just barely made ten thousand last year. I had to go out on Christmas day, in the rain, to get that last 78 miles.
Might as well. There is not much crossing Indiana that is interesting in its own right.
US-6 way up north in historic in that it was on the route of the first around the world car race (1908). But...
Missed it but did hear an extended interview with her and the guy who filmed it on NPR yesterday.
Lazy? Yeah, me too. I sold that bike in the avatar five years ago.
My setup, for what it is worth, is custom molded, wired earplugs from MOA member Bob Weis. http://www.earplugco.com/
I run satellite radio, the Garmin voice and the radar detector audio all...
I can't believe you said that. If you weren't a foot and a half taller than me, and half my age, I'd whip your scrawny butt.
Seriously though, everything you have said you are looking for in a new...
Congratulations.:thumb It is an intimidating looking job but if you take your time and pay attention it turns out to be not so bad. And a lot better than the $12-1500 the dealer gets for the job.
While you guys were all on here calling each other names last night, I was watching Alton Brown on TV. He was making - guess what - egg nog.
So here, courtesy of BMW rider Alton Brown, is the...
I don't know how you upper latitude people stand it. We had 9 hours and 18 minutes of daylight here in Indiana and it was not nearly enough.
But a festive solstice to everyone, and a sip of the...
Grocery store egg nog. Add one part brandy and one part rum. (the actual volume of a "part" is entirely up to you, but I advise a liberal measure.) Top with a little fresh grated nutmeg.
I caught it quite by accident this weekend. Good movie, especially if you are a gearhead. Funny thing, though, I didn't know till well into the movie that the principal character is a movie star.
You may get a dribble of fuel when you remove the QD fitting but it won't let the whole tank drain out. As long as you don't turn the key on and run the fuel pump. Don't do dat!
