Re: BEAKSTER BASH XV LaVale, Md May 16-20, 2018

I'm stuck here. Dealing with a moronic situation with a customer at work, and the last time I rode thought WV with the predicted amount of rain I almost bit it on I-77 at 77 mph when I hydroplaned across a small stream...

Enjoy.

I'm still trying to figure this out. May be stuck with working Friday early AM, and possibly Saturday. We are a little understaffed. Want to see everyone.

Re: Dayco vs. Bring More Wallet?

I got one at the dealership. There are different belts based upon build date and alternator. I actually have a short belt that won't fit on my bike although that is what came on it. long story. I didn't change the belt until 86,000 miles.

Re: What octane gas do you put in?

Use the lowest octane you can with the engine "knocking". You'll know if it knocks. In the warmer months, March through November, I can't get away with anything under 93. Have you hit 160k yet on the odometer? I just always use 91 or higher. There are also certain areas of the country tha...

Re: dry, cracked fuel lines

TThe quick disconnects definitely should be upgraded, and the fuel lines are an easy repair/upgrade. Also a good time to upgrade the clamps on the fuel lines.

Re: All in one biking boots: tall sole, weatherproof, no laces, and work appropriate

I have 2 sets of BMW boots. Got one on Closeout for $77 in 2003, and still ride in them. The newer(All Round boot) pair was also on sale at around $160. They are probably 7-8 years old. Both have been exceptional, and the old pair is one of my most comfortable shoes period. Feet have been wet once i...

Re: Tire Time

I've had several sets of Bridgestones. I like the T-30 Front, and the rear is OK. Good mileage and grip on front. Good grip but not great mileage on the rear. May be wicking it up too much.

The link didn't work. Or maybe the bike has sold, or maybe I just suck on operating a computer. But I could not pull up the pictures.

Re: Riding below freezing: do-able or suicidal...?

I recall Vann saying he thought I had hypothermia during that Bash. Weather channel said it would be 60 degrees, but somehow I rode through several inches of snow up and down the mountains of WV.

I will ride bellow freezing, but I try to do it when it is dry.

How about the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum in Weston, WV? Good roads, and all of us could apply for permanent residency.

82,000 on the seat. My seat isn't the original that was shipped with the bike. It originally had the tan seat, but someone wanted it on an Edition 80 Rockster. The sealer switched it out before I bought the bike. I occasionally use the Alaska Leather Sheepskin butt pad for long days in the saddle. K...

Re: BEAKSTER BASH 2016!!!! MARATHON NY - Three Bears Inn

I got home around 5, after 542 miles of riding today. I had a great time seeing old friends and new. I will post some pics, etc tomorrow. I traveled I-86, and was able to just roll along in a light drizzle about half of the way.
