    Here's the URL for the CyclePump EXPEDITION Tire Inflator: Yes, they are pricey, but you won't ever need to replace it. Made in the USA with a lifetime warranty. US...

    Extremely low MPG

    Makes me long for the two shut-off valves on my old ‘72 BMW! They each had a “reserve” position that provided about one liter of gas and extra miles until empty. Although I actually did run out of gas a few times while on various tours. I guess I do prefer having a gas gauge on my FJR - even...

    My experiment with BMW has taken a downturn

    We have a local Independent BMW repair shop in town, however the owner is 71 years old and his main repairman has Parkinson’s. That is part of the reason why I sold my ‘97 K1100LT to them for a severe loss and the very next week took delivery of my FJR. Best decision I’ve made. At least...

    Mirror Extensions

    I painted a set of the SW Motech Mirror Extenders to match and was pretty happy with them. But then I installed a set of Yamaha FZ1 Mirrors and there is simply no comparison, I can now actually see things behind me and NOT just my shoulders: YMMV

    My experiment with BMW has taken a downturn

    I owned 3 BMWs ('72 R75/5, '83 R80RT, and a '97 K1100LT) and all three developed leaky rear main seals. They all had a single plate dry clutch and the rear main seal was a weak point in their design. I paid a local independent BMW repair shop around a $1000 / year maintaining them. Two of...

    Seat Confusion

    I have a Corbin seat. To make it soften up a bit, I placed it on my office chair and sat on it for several weeks. It did, in fact, soften up after that. Now it fits me like a "glove"?? ;) YMMV

    FJR1300 top speed?

    One feature of my Garmin Zumo XT is that it records my Max Speed. At least until you clear it just before the Leo walks up to your bike asking you “Do you know how fast you were going”? :cool:
