    Sending a custom route to an Android phone

    If you create the route in google maps and share the map to your phone number, you will recieve a long text with all the turn by turns. At the bottom of text will be a link. Click on the link and it will open in google maps. Once opened, you may have to edit stops, then add to home screen. You...

    Is the preload on the rear shock on a ES adequate ?

    I  find the settings on my 15 ES to be entirely adequate with bike loaded up for a trip solo. I am about 250 lbs. Set at 2 helmets, std +3, is my normal setting. I set to soft-3 for slabbing, and go to hard +3 for serious twisties like the dragon or snake. I love the convenience of changing on...

    Trusting a Mechanic After a Mistake

    Everyone makes mistakes, but, as a mechanic working for a living, that is a very bad mistake. Life endangering in fact. He sounds like he wants to make things right. I would let him pay for parts and have the job done by someone qualified. Removing brake rotors is a PIA due to locktite. Don't...

    Some lightning photography showing-off

    Great captures! Can you tell us a little about the equipment you used. I have done a lot of basketball photography and a few moon shots. Having to set the white balance for each gym was a normal setup routine. And moon shots require daylight WB, since it is in fact, reflected sunlight. Curious...

    Odometer tampering?!?

    I had an 06 that had a recall on the gauge panel. They provided a sticker that was to be attached somewhere, on the bike. They may have put it on the back of the gauge panel, out of normal view, or not at all. Kind of shifty to me. I believe ECU would contain actual miles. Most people would...

    ear buds or in helmet bluetooth

    +1 On the Surefire Sonic Defender plugs. I use them with a Cardo Packtalk Bold unit with the JBL speakers in my Shoei Neotec helmet. They seal well and the sound from the helmet speakers comes through very well. I leave the filter plugs in as without them you hear too much wind noise.

    "Wheel Bearings" - FYI - Another Rhetorical rant....

    Have never had an issue with wheel bearings on an FJR. I did have to change front wheel bearings on my 2015 HD Road King at 20,000 miles. Harley Davidson changed some years back to a thinner bearing sourced from China. These bearings are sealed and often have insufficient grease inside. Not sure...

    New to me 2015 FJR 1300 ES

    Rode up to my buddies place in Blue Ridge, about 45 miles. Helped him do some construction in his workshop. On the ride back down a 2 lanes each way 65 mph highway, had another lady whip over right into my lane. This time there was no traffic slowing, just out of the blue lane change with no...
