2005 GS Oil drain issue after winter storage…?

So, bike has been stored for 5 months. Did the valves, lubes etc. Start it to warm oil for an oil change, remove filter and hardly any oil comes out. After contemplating, added some oil , level rises in sight glass. remove filter, some, less than a litre drains. Sight glass shows 1/2 full level. Any wisdom out there?

Loop of Romania in summer of 2018

Introduction
After our last trip to Albania in 2017 (Ride report can be found here), my girlfriend and I decided to ride to, and do a loop of, Romania the following year. So in the summer of 2018 we rode our Transalps to Romania and back from our home in the Netherlands. The trip was 18 days. We rode to Romania via mostly highways, did a loop through Romania on paved and...

Lynchburg, VA (and outlying areas, Forest, Evington, Madison Heights, etc)

I've been around these forums for a little while and I figure that I see enough adventure/enduro/DS bikes around town from time to time that surely there must be a few of you on here. If nothing else I figure this is would be a good way to know who's around but also to share riding spots, etc,

I'm always looking for some place new to ride, mostly off-pavement and I feel like I have to go a ways to find it. That may not change, but it's worth a shot.

2018 BMW G310GS

Hi Folks,

I am selling my near-new condition, nicely-farkled, never-dropped, garage-kept 2018 BMW G310GS with just 1,900 miles.

I am the original owner and purchased the bike in April 2018. It is a very capable and fun sub-400 lb. adventure bike. I wouldn’t hesitate to ride it anywhere. Initial dealer 600-mile service was completed in May 2018, and side stand recall was completed by my dealer in October 2018.

The following mods have been done and are included in the sale:

Two engineers ride the MABDR (Mid Atlantic Backcountry Discovery Route)

We just finished the MABDR a few days ago (5/26/2018), and I managed to throw together a little report.

Mostly, I’m posting on ADV because this particular BDR is new as of earlier this year, so not too many people have ridden it yet. I don’t often post to ADV, but I really like keeping trip reports on my personal blog (mostly for my own purposes), so its not much more work to just cross post it here. Feel free to skip all the blah blah words below and just scroll through the...

2000 Toyota Corolla using oil?

My wife drives a 2000 Toyota Corolla she just seems to love. She is 5'1" tall and her legs are a bit short and it seems to be the only car for years she is comfortable driving and fits her well. We bought it used for a deal with 101K on it and other then new struts and routine maintenance it has been a perfect car. Its still looks new inside and out and drives great at 210K now. Best $4,000 I ever spent on a car and gets 34 MPG.

For the first 80K miles we owned it the engine did not use...

Need help with changing brakes 91 R100GS Brembo

Sorry for the stupid question, just wanna make sure I’m doing this right. Searched around and didn’t find a post spelling it out but looks like I remove the top cover, depress the spring and pull the pins out? Is this right? The pins don’t have a lot of purchase area to grab with my hands so thinking I should use a pair of pliers.

Let me know if I’m on the right path.

Thanks guys!

HONDA GL1100/EML question.

NO........This is not another what tire or what oil is “best” for my bike.
What I would like to know is what tire pressure are you inflating the front, rear and side car wheel to?
Quite simple, eh?
Thanks for your knowledge!

Belt masters only

Hey guys, found a broken belt on my dentist chair I use in the office.

View attachment 1616004

I need to know how to buy the correct belt to replace it. Which measurements are the ones I need?

Also are these things rated for stress? It mates to the big electric motor to lift clients up, and some of them will not be easy lifts.

Any help would be great. It's old, no part number interchange that I can find and chair company name is M.I.A.

If you need information for old models, and maintenance, take a look at the Unofficial Zero Manual page https://zeromanual.com/wiki/Main_Page The page was created by an enthusiast and is not connected to the manufacturer.

Anyone have a solution to get this...

Adventure boots for a woman with thick ankles

i am looking to purchase a set of adventure boots with the attributes of a Forma Adventure, but with more room in the ankle area. Easy to walk around with, but an aggressive tread pattern for gravel and rocks, but sturdy enough for standing on the pegs for extended off road. Also, needs to fit a E width size 12 foot. Calf is only 16” but angle is enlarged from an off-road accident a few years back. And suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Big Agnes Hog Park 20 Sleeping Bag

I have a Big Agnes Hog Park 20F sleeping bag for sale. I originally purchased the bag in 2014 and have spent probably less than 12 nights in it. It's a very large semi-rectangular bag with hood that I originally purchased because I needed something warmer than the Wal-mart rectangular bag I was using at the time. I'm also a larger guy and I didn't like the idea of being confined in a tiny mummy bag. The bag is definitely warm and I have been cozy camping in it down to about 25F....

Idaho BDR in mid June???

Hey all,
I am traveling from back east and have noticed that you guys have been getting buried by snow this past winter and wondering if you think I will be able to do the BDR in mid June or not? I am going to do a river trip and hope to pull the trailer with the bikes and do the trip after. Wondering if its worth pulling the bikes or not???

Any information or opinions are appreciated...

Bikes That You Dont See Everyday

Five of my last six bikes have been Triumphs. Prior to that, mostly Japanese bikes from the big four. I always loved the looks and lines of the Moto Guzzi Griso 1200, but they're one of those bikes that you just don't see on the streets, and honestly I never imagined owning a Guzzi either. Last year when I found out that they were discontinuing the Griso due to not being able to meet the new Euro emission standards for 2017, I decided to go take a look at one in person. There were only three...
