Sorry, Eddie.

Hoping that Larry rests in peace.

It was the blue and white model.  He was good on it too.  You would have liked him.  Pics added above.

One of ours has "left the building".

Pete (Bulletbkr) passed away last Sunday from a heart attack.

He was good people and shouldn't be forgotten.  A Gixxer-1000 rider that I'd known since the early days of Crash! Club, he deserves to be remembered.  Always there when we needed him, he was an inspiration and one of the best.

Ride on, Pete.

Good stuff.  It rains a lot here.  I don't mind.

His other videos are worth a look, too.

I really enjoyed the time I spent on one.  The ergos were very good, but 40-mpg was the best I was able to get.  It was nice to wheelie up the on ramps, but that isn't a requirement for me.  I'd test ride an FZ-09 and see if it sings to you.

My Ninja does that sometimes.  I'd check the hose clamps for tightness and probably loosen them wiggle the hose around a little and then tighten them back up.  The pipe on the right should have an o-ring where it goes into the case.  I'd replace it if the problem persists.  That's the problem with my Ninja, I'm just too lazy to fix it yet.

Wish it were that simple. Gen 2 BMW ABS triggers the brake light through fluid pressure within the ABS module. No external electric switches like, well, probably every other bike on the planet. At least flush and bleed is conventional. None of that turkey baster fluid extraction jib jab. Other than a normal bleed, there’s the added step of cycling the ABS pump with the GS911 and then re-bleeding.

If I were tasked with flushing and bleeding the old BMW system four times in a row I would have just put the bike in a Walmart parking lot with the engine running and walked away.

Sheesh!  What a nightmare!  Glad you resolved it. 

I can't help but wonder what the engineers were thinking of when they designed and implemented that system.  Their continued revenue stream must have been a part of that equation.

Wow. 

Sorry, Todd. 

Heal well and soon!

My bike has been in the shop getting the engine rebuilt for 2 months (parts for a 2008 Triumph engine are not readily available off the shelf), having to drive the 40 miles to work (which includes Ortega) leaves me much more tense and aggravated with people in cars, who I would normally be able to ride around.  And I do notice I usually only think about riding when doing so, all the other distractions of life are put aside.  Supposed to be done next week, YAY!


BTW, have to say I'm quite happy with my Triumph, having put over 120,000 miles on it in 7 years, and thankful for the extended warranty I bought which still has 6 months left on it.  Actually very few issues.  Then engine was feeling a bit tired and the ring lands finally broke on 1 cylinder.  Unfortunately the warranty only covered that one piston and cylinder and teardown.  Love the bike, so I went for a complete rebuild, the extra 3k out of my pocket is a lot cheaper than any new, or newer used bike, and if I can get another 120k out of it, I'll be a happy guy!

Wow, Rick.  That's cool.  Crash free miles, too.

I see.  That sucks.

Yamaha had a run of bad electrics during that era.  Lots of bad stators on many models.  They're really easy to test, so I'd take a look at it.

Those bikes were bad-ass for their time!  I remember watching a friend do burnouts on his.

It's a little colder here.  These are from early December.  We got a foot of snow.  More expected the coming weekend.

One of the best things about living in So Cal is year round riding season

True dat!

But I like having seasons again.  This is from day before yesterday.  We had a spell of freezing rain.  Rare here, but beautiful to see.

Does anyone know why this law was passed in the first place?  That has me puzzled...
