    Thanks Darrell - I just ordered some to try it out. We had mice chew the windshield wiper hose on my wife's new Honda CR-V so will put some in that garage as well.

    Sorry - should have said East of Grand Marais - thanks for catching it.
  3. Mice paid a visit over the winter - R1150GS

    After a very long winter, I was doing a spring check up, and found that mice had snacked on the insulation for my wiring for the sensor under the seat.

    It was a good reminder to take some time for...

  5. less commuting, more day tripping

    I used to commute, but the increase in texting left me feeling like I was in a video game, so don't commute on my bike much anymore. A few longer trips each year - 1,500-2,000 miles, but no...

    Nice rides through Michigan

    I'd add +1's on 31 north along the West side of the lower peninsula, Harbor Springs, and North on M22 - great, low speed 1.5 lane road best done early in the day before the RV's come through. Nice...

    so...this is a BMW MOA Forum. If you want to have a discussion about kymco, vespa or others - GO TO THOSE FORUMS.
  8. North through Canada next....

    Weather should be great this week - slightly cooler than today's 90f 90% humidity. I had planned on a loop around Superior, but when I would see an interesting road, I'd turn off and do a little...
  9. Michigan - great loop along Lake Michigan, Lake Superior and into Wisconsin

    I recently had the chance to take a few days for a ride along the west coast of Michigan's lower peninsula, then across the U.P. and down through Wisconsin and finally a ferry ride back to West...

    ABS is on the required list.

    I was riding with a friend - I on my 2001 r1150gs and he on a 2009 KLR650. No rain but the road was damp from dew or earlier light rain.

    We were side by side at a light, and as we got up to...

    Thanks everyone. I like the "both" option, and the 5th gear of the /6. It might come down to which is a better deal - looking at them this week.

    Took the bike home today. Shifts are highly more precise. I went through early service records and in the margins someone had written " customer feels shifting is harder than it should be " and...
  13. R75/5 vs the /6 bikes - DIY rebuild rating.

    Hi,
    I am looking for a bike to work on and ride - not a full blown restoration, just enough to be clean, reliable and wrench able. My skills are mediocre - confident in earlier rebuilds of dirt...
  14. Fixed - shredded clutch spline

    I just heard back from BMW:

    Failed Clutch, and somehow the clutch spline was chewed to death. given the speed of the failure it seems like the teeth just shaved off in unison. So instead of...

    BMW of Grand Rapids just got back to me and they can't get to the bike until Monday. I'm off for the weekend to the upper peninsula of michigan - on a Honda......
    I'll share the diagnosis Monday.
  16. Thanks: 1 - running in neutral - everything is...

    Thanks:
    1 - running in neutral - everything is normal. Shift with clutch still in - normal. Let clutch out in any gear and out comes a grinding whine. Cannot get back into neutral unless I turn...

    The great news is I was a mile from home - vs a 1,000 mile weekend route through the upper peninsula I'd planned for Friday. Maybe I can get it on the road by then. I'm pretty happy with the whole...

    Yes - definitely old, and I've put 3k on it last summer so it only averaged about 1k/ year. I did have various seals checked - but know that normal riding is better to make things last. No large...
  19. 2001 R1150 GS - Clutch / Transmission Failure at 14,500 miles

    Today I headed out for a ride on a beautiful day in Michigan - one of few we've had this spring. I had the 6,000 interval service completed at my local BMW dealership at about 13,500 miles in...
