    Accident

    Ever since I put the bike down a little while back I've been hyper aware of all other vehicles I'm sharing the road with. You might even say nervous, especially in Town or any built up areas.Recently had a cousin in the States die after a lifetime of complications from a motorbike accident when...

    2011 BMW F650GS... (2017 BMW F700GS)

    This is the collapsable crate set up on my TW I use for cheap transport to work. Found them at Home Depot and bought one to see if it was tough enough to survive my job. Answer is yes. Went back to buy another dozen but they stopped carrying them for some odd reason .It's attached to the rack...

    Went for a ride today...never ending hi-jack thread

    Forgot to add the part where the bee - not a wasp- entered my helmet. I felt the impact then patiently waited for Bee to select a proper location for the sting .He chose my right eyebrow . Slowly pulling off to the perfect shoulder, I methodically removed my riding gloves equipped with very...

    Went for a ride today...never ending hi-jack thread

    Got out for a good run today on the new GS. 18 deg and overcast is good temps for me in The Suit. Nice flat light for the road ... Other than a highway run to Puerto Rexton and commuting to work for a week , this was my first real ride. Turned off the TCH at Dildo down thru Old Perlican etc on...

    What did you do to your bike today?

    Had the knobbie tires switched over to street tires that came with the new bike. With all the wet weather I'm happy to have more contact . Also had a battery tender cable installed and oil change on this bike. All done at Toy Box as work doesn't allow me much time off

    Waste Oil

    TJ's ( European Auto Mechanic) used to burn it in their furnace. So It cost him very little to heat his shop. I used to bring up the waste oil from the Generators we use on film sets. The oil is changed frequently to ensure smooth operation ,so its not dirty whatsoever . TJ though I had made a...

    Throwback Thursday.

    First day of the TW..note the bars of the tiny gas powered scooter just off to the left. I managed to get it started a couple times but the compression is gone. not sure its worth the effort really. Might just bolt a new trimmer motor on some day

    2011 BMW F650GS... (2017 BMW F700GS)

    My new bike(G650gs) had also been "factory lowered " ..Toy Box told me it would need the shock replaced back to stock, not just a " lowering link " as on some bikes..also said it was a girls bike. That stung a bit . I'm not personally bothered by it. I'm 5'5 so it works for me. And I do like the...
