Well a few things since april:

Hyperpro springs front, 30k service, my new throttle lock and today scraping off the paint and the rust of my Holan Crashbars... god damn what a shame, after 6 months (or so) of use the paint is coming off and underneath it is rust... Hate it. Well after a whole afternoon of scraping they get a nice rust treatment tomorrow and a new "rustfree" pain :o)

Well yes they were black... Everything that is unpainted and shiny was covered with rust... PITA. Seems like the welding points are the weak spot of this paint.

Today I did an oil change and broke my dipstick... Fckn plastic thingy. Reaver you don't have a spare by any chance .

DIPSTICK.

Is that what you broke?

Some people should get the service done at the Dealer.

Maybe Touratech sells a dipstick protector?

Nah it was slightly bend and I wanted to bend it back ... Well I still can't jauge my superhuman strength. Well the TT looks like aluminium and is just a bit more expensive than the plastic thingy from BMW. I'll go for that one :o)

My evil twin purchased two firearms and almost the equivalent value of the rifles in ammunition.... Figure it is only going to get more difficult to procure given today

Today I finished my HyperPro spring swap in the forks, and picked up my daughter from Kindergarten. She thought that was tops.

Rode from Billings down to Logan Utah for work on Monday



This evening I buzzed up Logan Canyon, what a FUN road.



Also, had to break my rule of not going off road when I havnt told someone where Im at (especially with a new 4 month old), but I had too, looked like too much fun, and it was!!!



The Tourance I had on the front was sucking though... Kinda like trying to get up on water skis....




Also, probably one of my last longer trips for a while because of the Kid. I am selling her and she is available in fleamarket.


I think Im moving to the smaller orange 690 side....

But I will miss her indeed...

Heidenau F69 front tire

Thanks Spektrum84!

Hope you like it!!

Installed a Heidenau K69 front tire. The Cdn dist for Heidenau asked me to try it out and give them feedback.



Overall a good soft conditions tire. Even though I suspect it wasn't designed with 500lb adv bikes in mind it never did anything unpredictable even on cold damp pavement (didn't push it too hard on that knowing what it's designed for). It doesn't have a thick sidewall so I kept the pressure up (don't need to add any more dings to the rim ) and it still did very well off road. I'll post it in the tire threads.
