Re: Tank bag

I've heard complaints that it will scratch up the paint if the underside isn't kept clean from dust build-up from the Facebook SovSteeds.

Re: Garmin vs. Google Maps (those using Garmin)

There is a "Send directions to your Phone" option just above your route options in Google Maps. If you dont see that there is the icon to do the same.

Also you will need to put some clear adhesive sheeting on the tub to keep the cans from scratching the paint.

Re: Interstate Blast from NC to Florida and Back

My helmet is off to anyone who rides the interstates on the Ural. It is exhausting to me. I can ride 55+ on secondary roads without a problem. Add in the stress of other drivers, boring scenery, poor road conditions that bounce the rig everywhere and it gets tiring quick.

Re: Removing & replacing the rear wheel & brake pads

The caliper bolts are held on by three threads. Do not tighten them to torque spec. They will strip. Use blue Loctite and a snug turn.

Re: '14 rear caliper bolt size?

TomCatFixer found that dealers sell a service kit for the Hayes Brakes. IMZ-8.1040-27032 - Service Kit for Rear Brake Caliper
He and Speedbump also cut once their tubes shorter so he could engage more thread.
