The only way to clean off the haul road is......

Well after the ride up the haul road I had decided that it was time to find a GS, my R1150R had served me well and delivered me home unscathed after 13,250 plus miles but she was a street bike and i need to do so many more places. So the search began and I looked hi and low for a well priced machine. I found one close and after many hours cleaning my R1150R I decided the only way to get the haul road off her was to take her and trade her. I am now the proud owner of a well mod’ed ‘01 R1150GS. Thanks to the folks at Northern Colorado Euro Motorcycles especially Matthew Peters for the service and sending me my gremlin bell i left on my old steed.




Now she needs to run the dragon, Deals Gap in NC (US-129) and maybe she needs to go to Prudhoe Bay….. she has already been up ten sleep and back through shell. test running her close to the house where she started to fuel starve in the corners. i changed fuel filters (3 maybe 4 min due to external filter mod) and she has run without incident since.

Well.........I finally got around to changing the sprockets from 16/42 to 17/41. For the F800GS crowd reading this I will recommend this for the highway portion of this trip. It makes shifting smoother- less jerky response from the throttle. But the big bonus is improved gas mileage at highway speeds. Now I'm seeing higher instant. MPG readings at speed.


Also, to everyone I talked with at Quaker Steak and Lube last night, thanks for the interest. I found it comical that my dirty, bagged GS was getting so much attention while parked beside the $30,000+ custom chopper.
