keep Schuberth visor open just a bit?

CalSci size

There's a *lot* of flex with the X-Tall. But it's not the screen that flexes -- it's the factory mounts. So much that when I got back from my trip I took off the CalSci and put the OEM shield back...

I've now got 8700+ miles on the OEM Tourance Next tires on my new GS-LC. The rear is pretty squared off but has just a bit if tread left and looks like it might be good for a few hundred more, while...

Cross country average

Got back ten days ago from a 7200 mile cross country ride. 42 mpg average, with half freeway (75 mph) and half two lane (65 mph or less). A lot of wind. I never let it get too low -- obviously didn't...

I'm just back from a (US) cross country ride, so my original Tourace Next tires have 8700+ miles. The rear has just a bit of tread left, so probably good for another couple hundred miles, maybe more...

Cross country on the new R1200GS

I just got back from a 7200 mile, two week cross country ride on my new 2013 R1200GS-LC. The bike was great and I had a lot of fun -- other than dealing with the weather, a horrible saddle, and a...

torx size

Yeah, now I feel stupid. I had only eyeballed the rear wheel bolts and thought that they were much bigger, but now that I'm home and tried it a T50 fits. So looks like the T15 to T50 set will do the...

Agreed. I wouldn't attempt a Prudhoe Bay run right away; I'm thinking that will be 2014 or 2015. This summer is US coast to coast, never far from civilization. (Though you're always a ways away from...
