Tonopah, did you have to use the mirror extenders that are suggested with the ZTechnic?

Tire Pressure Monitoring question

My 2010 F650GS had a flat rear tire waiting for me after work last night. The guys from the motor pool saved the day with a compressed air canister and it was just a loose valve core. But this got me...

I'll wager you were through the Fairfield area on this trip. One of those roads looks real familiar. I have hunted grouse on the knoll you rode up, through those barbed wire gates...am I close?

Really like it...

When we built our second home we opted for metal roof and Hardie Plank siding. Being in a semi-arid area where fire is a real risk it made sense. Beyond that it looks great and wears really well. We...

Recent day trip

The Mountain Loop Highway just east of Silverton. Thick fir and cedar forest makes for a great backdrop.

Mountain Loop Highway, WA

Saturday morning I gassed up and headed out for the Mountain Loop Highway for a ride. (http://www.northwestplaces.com/trips001/MtnLoopHiway.htm )

It's a great day trip of a little over 100 miles....

VME monthly meetings

It used to be that when VME held their monthly meetings at Teddy's off Roosevelt it would draw lots of bikes up and down both sides of the street.

Checking the VME site I see the meet elsewhere...

You're not alone...

Mine does the same thing, though I have no idea why. I'll be checking with the shop when I do the first 600 mile check up.

BRE, I was wondering about just using the interior stiffener despite what the instructions said. I think it would help in case I happen to drop the bike (like that would never happen :wink:)

Installing Jesse Safari's on a F650GS

I received my Jesse panniers yesterday and have started to assemble them this morning. As you may already know the instructions are grainy black and white copies that are clear as mud. So I also...

Taking the bull by the horns

I'm tempted to work with a decal maker and "name" it a F798GS. Pull off the original decal and slap my own on it.

I wonder if it would void the warranty? :D

Lots of options...

Well, there's the low suspension, tire pressure monitoring, computer, ABS, set up, freight, etc. Add to that the Queens Ransom (WA. State Tax.) and I gets real close to $13K.

I used to laugh at folks spending huge amounts of money on Harley Davidsons. That's based on my last new purchase of a 1993 K75 for about $7K out the door with hard bags, trunk, and a tank bag. I...

Back in the saddle again...

Just a quick snap of my new F650GS. I picked it up last weekend and have to say I'm quite delighted with it. The last bike I had was a '93 K75 and it didn't have the nice touches that the new one...
