Does anyone have any good resources for brake lines around here for my 1150 GS? Of course the one that blew goes from the ABS unit to the right caliper and has an integral "T" in it for the left caliper, the most expensive one. No one I have called has one in stock and for just a bit more I can get a 5 hose kit from Galfer on ebay for just a few $$$ more.

Didn't know he was Navajo.
Who has the cryptic key to understand what he says?

I'll have to rent code talkers again.

With my new bike I can send up smoke signals.

Never been down that way before, but I made it! I'm sure most of you know but apparently there is a >1' rock cliff in the middle of the road about halfway through. I didn't see it until I got right up to it, and figured I better not get too brave so I had to back up about 20 yards and go around it. That's when I realized how heavy my bike is

But, I can't complain. I made it all the way up that hill without going down. I'm sticking with 50/50 tires from now on as far as I can tell.
You mean this rock ledge??




Impressive! You did pretty good then. Should have you ready for the camp and ride in next week.

North to south - south to north good and bad about going each way.

I ordered a custom line from apex brakes a few months back Tim, good quality, cheap and fast, it was $36 shipped i think, from canada, and took about 4 days


http://www.apexbrakes.com/custom.asp

also Napa ( TnT auto) here in fayetteville has some metric brake parts and they crimp hoses
there is also a hydraulic hose shop along side the springdale air port on high265

His brother was the president of the Massachusetts Senate, and without him Whitey couldn't of done all he did. He was sick, perverted, sociopath.
Heh, I actually know Kevin Weeks. Used to play paintball with him. Needless to say, when the FBI started calling and asking questions about my association with him I got a little nervous.

That's the one!! I used to trail ride on my old CR250 and probably would have tried it on that bike. Not the KLR though lol. I had to back around that tree thats still laying right there.

Fun "road" though!
