Anyone near BK Heights have some tools I can borrow? Got home from my ride tonight and one of my exhaust tips was barely hanging on. Need a hex key and small socket wrench or metric wrench to get in there and hopefully I can just tighten it up. Really glad I cut my ride short. Can't seem to catch a break lately.

Yeah, that's the official Bear Mt. bear, he works for the state.

You told us, that's enough.

Pissed E-ZPass - Newer Smaller Version

I just called E-ZPass and the two people I spoke to said that there is no way for them to place an order for the newer smaller size E-ZPass tag. They can place an order for a replacement tag but they cannot guarantee whether they'll actually ship the older or the newer/smaller tag. WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well that sucks.
I thought it was a motorcycle sized tag.
I'll call today as well.

Thanks.

But for now please don't use the Checkpoint Alert System for that. A checkpoint is a checkpoint; towing is towing.

I'm working on setting up separate feeds for towing and speed traps. I'll post something up when that happens.

Beware of dirt on the roadway in the area.
I had a near highside from unseen dirt from that const.
I went back to see what made me fishtail and the trucks have made a mess of the road. Couldn't see it traveling along.

It finally rained. After over a week of the weather report completely screwing with my head - they finally got it right .... Nice wet ride home after work.

I enjoyed it but my clothes did not.
Do you guys pack ponchos with you or something?
Any tricks to be more prepared for the rain?

I'm hoping the rain report for tomorrow is wrong.
I have a 9am appointment with BMW to install my new top box.

Proper gear. Waterproof riding pants and jacket.

Lately, with this "permanent 30-50% chance of rain" weather, I have taken to wearing mesh every day, and keeping a dry change of street clothes in the office.

It did, but not enough to make me put my rain jacket on. However I almost dumped it twice: first while parking my left foot found a painted line, then after stopping at a red light, left foot again, found what I assume to have been mid-lane gunk, that time it went pretty far down and I hit my horn and my high-beam switch while wrestling it up.

What do you ride in that had such issues with some light precipitation?
