new tires for my old bike

Well, I've been sulking about because my rear tire's been leaking a bit. I have to air up every time I take it to work. The leak's slow enough that I can make it back home without problem. I've suspected it was from the mushroom plug my shop put inside the tire a few years back, when the tire was a ...

Re: M/C friendly places to stay in Chattanooga and Dragon ar

Thanks for the sage advice! We have a Comfort Inn Suite for night 1; a room at the Deals Gap M/C resort for night 2 (couldn't resist experiencing "disneyland", tho we'll prolly regret it; a bunk and a queen under $100); and an AirBNB two bedrooms in a house in Columbia for night 3 (2 queen...

Re: brake pad

Read this thread, it's the one above yours right now.

Amazon had the best prices last month.

Agreed, best place to get them is BBY, best price---Amazon (last month)

Re: Best replacement pads for R1150R ABS?

Launch pad departure this morning was A-OK. No problems at all with brakes, no squealing, no chatter. Happy camper. I like the EBC brakes so far: price, ease of installation, performance (although limited testing they seem fine if not better). Only thing left on my list is duration of use—I'll try t...

Re: Best replacement pads for R1150R ABS?

I am proud to report that I replaced the rear brakes Sunday evening and rode to work today without incident. I braked hard every couple hundred yards on my rear brakes to "bed them in" and within a few such, they even started to work admirably. So encouraged, I replaced the front brakes th...

M/C friendly places to stay in Chattanooga and Dragon area

OK, I'm traveling with two other m/c guys (my brother and a guy from Turkey) on a 10-day trip through AR, TN, SC, NC, VA and back to AR. So we are a party of 3 guys, and we are doing the hotel thing (don't ask, but my bro has no room for camping gear on his 1800 cc m/c). I've never thought about thi...

Re: 04 R1150R, lower pegs, shifter mod.

I purchased Suburban Machinery's extended shift lever. I thought the cost was high, and intended to try it out and see with the possibility of returning it. Bottom line: I am satisfied and intend to at least do a couple 100 more miles to figure out if I really like it. I think I will. Anyone who wan...

Re: Need a 2006 R1150/R850 service manual

I went for 5 years without a service manual, doing all my own maintenance based on advice found here and elsewhere on the web. Lots of routine and not so routine service done. For some strange reason, like you, I felt I needed an authority figure to help me. A few weeks ago I purchased a Clymer Serv...

Following with interest your posts. I too fell hard with NBF (new bike fever) this winter and spent several months trying to convince myself I needed this or that new (to me) bike.

Re: WTB: rider peg lowering kit

OK, hopefully penultimate post on the topic from me. Cleaning up the locktite problem and reassembly cleared up the shifting problems. OK to work and back to day (but just a few miles). And I do feel I'm getting used to the new location of my feet and shift and brake levers. They are all working any...

Re: How to use my new zumo?

Thanks for the suggestion Doc. I will definitely check it out. I've been using macs since the Lisa; probably had 20 or more if I counted them up. Then there's all the ones I bought for other people. I would think it would be enough to get them over this rough patch! That said, I go both ways and als...

Problems with extended shift lever from Surburban Machinery peg lowering kit—maybe solved... So, some time after installation of the extended shift lever, I started to have trouble. First sign was the unintended downshift from 6 to 5 during my test run. OK, maybe I didn't properly preload that upshi...
