    Solo Ride Coast To Coast- California To South Carolina (and back)

    Enjoy your posts, the Dunlop's wear amazingly well. A little oil once in a while is no big deal. I was going to suggest riding northern Arkansas (great roads) but your past that. Perhaps on the return ride. Enjoy!

    2014 or newer stock Carrier for back rack.

    My Monokey 30l box is well over 10 years old and has a different base plate than the one you show. I found out they changed the plate when I bought a 40l box recently, had to return it and as I like the 30l for most riding I do. It's all good as the seller included the base as well as the...

    2014 or newer stock Carrier for back rack.

    A Givi mounting plate won't fit to the large Yamaha plastic part as it is designed for the Yamaha top box. The part I am looking for lasted almost 50k hard miles. I think I found one on Face Book , I have a plan to reinforce it before using it.

    2014 or newer stock Carrier for back rack.

    My 2014 has taken a beating with the Givi top case, looking for a factory replacement. Looking for one in good condition (no cracks) please. Must be 14 or newer. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    where did you TAKE your Tenere today?

    Out for a afternoon ride around the Sutter Buttes in the Big Valley of Northern California. The Almond trees are half way through their bloom. Used the back way back off the pavement up the western foothills toward home. A real nice 160 mile loop. Amen to warm n safe heated gear, it was a bit...

    Yo Spud. You're talking my backyard for the last 35 years, my wife was born in Yuba City The Bowman Lake road has always been rough but is way worse than you remember these days. I'm 5 minutes from Chicago Park, went through there today...twice but sadly working and not riding. Not many roads...

    Honda Gold Wing - the return of shaft drive

    Have you reached for the clutch lever yet? ;) It'll happen but whats really strange is when you go back to a manual trans bike and have to shift, seems so yesterday. BTW another one is when you need to honk at some cage merging in your lane and you go for the normal horn button and bam! you...

    Honda Gold Wing - the return of shaft drive

    The GL1800 forum has lots of information on this bike. IF you do your own maintenance may I suggest the Fred Harmon video's on Vimeo - well worth the $. BTW oil changes suck. 3 drain plugs, a reset oil filter in the oil pan and a DCT filter on the bottom of the motor. Don't even bring up the...

    Honda Gold Wing - the return of shaft drive

    I've got 55k on my 18, it's my cross country mule. If you were doing 18 mph in 4th it's because you were being sedate with the throttle. The bike will respond to your riding style, in other words it'll hold it in a gear longer when you ride it aggressive or shift sooner if you're riding mellow...

    Harley Pan Am taking it on the chin

    I have an independent mechanic who works on all makes of bikes (he is really good) and last time I was there to pick up my S10 forks after service I saw a Hardly Ableson he was working on. I asked about HD's and he went into a rant about what a pos bike they produce, bad engineering combined...

    How far do you go with the fuel gauge flashing?

    Back to the op question. My low fuel light comes on around 185 and I know I have 1.5 gallon on reserve so I figure I'm good good for 60 miles (avg 43ish mpg) which means I'd better be at the gas station before 240 miles to be safe. I may ride slower off the highway but I seem to make up for...

    where did you TAKE your Tenere today?

    We saw Muley on the map but not enough time for that too. Johns canyon was fine, a few shallow sand spots but not a big deal. We took our time enjoying the scenery so it was about an hour plus off the pavement to go 20 miles in. The last quarter mile was deep sand so we passed on that and...
