Nothing today but catch drywall dust. I've been sprucing up it's quarters.

I did however add a new steering damper a couple weeks ago and need to fabricate new bar risers since the Wunderlich ones won't work with the GPR damper. I have some aluminum ordered to fabricate them on my new mill.

the trust fund is bone dry!!!! paycheck comes Friday though!

as for the supermotard... I commute most everyday on the bike and I am sick and tired of putting on a nice knobby tires and have them for one good weekend and then next time I go out and play around off road they're worn out from my commute....

that's the REASONABLE answer...

truth....

Shits and giggles...

I'm sorry if I'm hijacking this thread a little, but how about those brake rotors? Are they the Twalcom ones? This was your solution for all that f*&*īng noise from the stock brakes? How do the new ones work?

I know, lots of questions...

But, to keep up with this thread:

The rotors are Galfers. I had Woody make me a second set of wheels so I use the 19 front (with Galfers) and 17 rear (with stock rotor) for street; and my 21 front (with stock rotor) and 18 rear (with Galfer) for the dirt. Like Motorfiets I got tired of smoking through knobbies when I wasnt riding dirt.
I never really had significant problems with the stock rotors, but the twin Galfers on the 19 are indeed sweet and they work extremely well.
I like the road setup enough that for the first time I'm thinking about trips that dont involve dirt. This of coarse might be a bad thing, because we all know that if you only ride pavement on your GS then you have to give up your man card.

Yeah, that's right. I wish some of the "hardcore" riders I know could read this. And we don't even have a Starbucks here in my hometown...

Anyways, I'll have my stock front rotors replaced by new ones under warranty. Thing is they are "more loose" than they should. Even the BMW guy agreed.

Let's wait to see the results.

And thanks again. That "man's card" shit was really funny. Cheers.

Still waiting to get mine back from the shop >=[ those damn Bavarians are taking their sweet a** time to send parts. Why can't they just steal them off one of the bikes on the production line? Anyway currently this is what mine looks like.

Installed Booster Plug on 658

I installed the Booster Plug on my 09 F650 Twin. Pretty easy. I'n my opinion, it's made a big difference. This is my first FI bike, and I wasn't digging the throttle response. I tried to get used to it, but after almost 4k kms, it was still an issue.

The change was instant with the BP. It really slowed down the way it rolls on. Almost stalled the bike at first. It also feels better coming out of a slow corner. Hitting the throttle half-way and the bike just chugs out really nice and strong. rear tire even broke loose, but there was no panic, just nice and even pulling through.

It also sounds just a tiny 'thicker' on the low rpms, but that could also be my imagination.

Anyway, happy with it.
