Re: Is $400 for a brake flush an honest fee?

No disrespect to Peels, but he's probably a better wrench than he's letting on if he did the brake flush in 1-2 hours. I think my record was 4, but it was probably 5. I suck, I'm clumsy and I have big paws. But I'm aware of that, so I take my time, particularly with a fiddly job like an servo ABS fl...

Re: Beakster Bash Lexington VA May 18 - 22, 2017

This will need to be a game time decision. Work project may still be in a critical condition. I'm sure I'll be catching hell for taking two days off last week. Happy Easter all!

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

Got home safe yesterday, was a full day: washed both vehicles, hour of exercise, almost scored a free bike, attended daughter's art show and even scored a potential buyer for Mike's magna. When I went to wash the bike, noticed something odd... http://i1347.photobucket.com/albums/p704/jfslater98/2016...

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

Ooo, that was a close one. I just got the last room for Thursday (5/19). Unfortunately, due to a family event I just found out about this morning, I have to curtail my visit this year. Sadly. But I will be there Friday, and looking forward to seeing the gang. See you all soon!

Re: abs again

You probably checked already, but in case you didn't... make sure the battery is in good shape. A weak battery will cause all sorts of ABS issues. Good luck!

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

Ran through the calendar three times. 2 out of 3 had that weekend open, so very likely for me to make it. Just need to keep myself off the pavement this year.

Thanks for all the kind words everyone. Getting better, but the part that stings the most is missing this event. :cry:

Hope everyone is safe and had fun. Looking forward you seeing you all again in the future.

Re: 2015 Bash May 15-17, Staunton Virginia

Not sure I can make this one now. I'm OK, relatively speaking, but not sure I'm in shape to ride, or even drive. Bike fared better than I did. Low speed fall, but faster than a drop in the driveway. http://i1347.photobucket.com/albums/p704/jfslater98/Misc/IMG_20150507_123611_125_zpsfabrtkpq.jpg

Anyway, has anyone mentioned the fuel line disconnects? I'm guessing they've been replaced by now but if not, now's the time. Lots of info on that, quick search on google or otherwise will bring plenty of info.

Officially cleared for landing. I'd like a *edit* short sleeve */edit* shirt in L, please, if still available. Looking forward to seeing the crew again! Sorry you can't make it OU812, maybe next year.

Re: Tempted to replace the Rock

I was tempted away by a GS Triple Black. Saw it at the motorcycle show that year and was hooked. At the time, I was able to say truthfully that my knees were done with the bend the Rockster demanded. But had they offered the 90 Ed. 1200R at the time... oooh what a looker. Here, let's soak that in fo...
