Re: Apparently my GU missed the boat

I'm going to a BMW dealer tomorrow and will be kicking some tires. probably a good move especially with the signs/bad Mojo f...

Re: 2018 CT Sparkplug Insulator Color

These are sparkplugs with 6100 miles on them under all sorts of riding conditions from 6200' in the Smokeys to my flatland Florida back roads. The light khaki coloration on the tips of the insulators indicate a near perfect mixture, just slightly on the rich side, which is what I need in our hot cl...

Re: What did you do to your Ural today?

In between rain showers, my first go at doing an engine oil & filter change. Seems to have been successful, as in, it hasn't puked it all onto the floor then seized up. :D A full service is still booked for a month hence at the dealer but I wasn't comfortable riding it until then as I have a couple...
