brembo “no tools” brake bleed threads

was there a walk through on brake bleeding on the forum or on boobtube?

i’m going to use a turkey baster to take the old fluid out and i sold the mity vac. but i’m not convinced i did this right the last time i did this without brake bleed tools.

i’m also going to toss the half used bottle of DOT 3 and buy a new one.

unfortunately google is not returning any good results even when i throw in “advrider” and “old’s cool”.

i’m sure there are various ways to do it but any good containers to...

R1100GS snapped pushrod and more

Bike is a 1997 R1100GS with 170'000km I've had for about a year now (changed original brake lines on it so assuming not a lot of love had been put in it).

Started off with a slipping clutch on high revs and turned into no response in clutch lever a few kms further. Riding through a dodgy road with no service I soldiered on with the more and more slipping clutch (no slips in previous rides) to get to civilization.
A smoky roll to the end with what seemed to be a leaking rear main seal...

Garmin Montana and Open Street Maps

Ya gotta dance with the one you brought...

My F800GSA has the BMW Montana
Basecamp is 4.7.0

and I've learned that I can't route with this software, using OSM data (they're supposedly routable maps).

So my question is, Will the Montana, with Open Street Maps, use them to create a route between waypoints? I've got Garmin North America 2020.1 NT so I'm good till I hit Guatemala. I've got OSM covering the rest of my trip to/into Colombia and Ecuador.

Big Sur, anyone? (03/21/19 – 3/31/19)

Hey all, I have a week off and want to spend some of it - probably about 3-4 days - exploring Big Sur (probably after taking Highway 1 down from the Bay Area). Thought I would see if anyone was interested in joining me for some or all of it. I'm pretty flexible about which days between 3/21 and 3/31 it takes place on.

I'll be riding a KLR 650. The plan is to explore the Coast Ridge Trail and camp along that while I'm down there. Does anyone know how important it is to camp in a designated...

1100gs running bad

Hello,

Suddenly my 1100gs (98) is running very bad and starts difficult.

Maybe you guys have any suggestions before I keep buying and replacing parts..

Thanks in advance!

Underrated / understated cars that are actually awesome…

Actually was looking for a “show us your latest car purchase” thread where I could post a pic or two of my new to me car (cos I’m pretty chuffed with it! :lol3) but then I thought maybe we could have a thread of cars that are understated and/or underrated but actually are awesome!

So here it is

‘04 Ford Mondeo ST220, very rare in NZ, only a few sold through Ford dealers, 74,000ks (46,000m), 3.0 V6, 6 speed manual. Pretty minty condition. Sensational chassis. Not flash or expensive...

Club/Riding Group?PNW

Hey there, anyone have any good advice on how to seek out or start a riding group/club for adventure bike riders? I live in Oregon and ride with a couple friends with adventure bikes but mostly find myself riding with Harley riding friends as they are more common. I have for a long time been interested in finding an existing group of adventure riders, or even starting a new group somehow but not quite sure how to go about either of those two options. Any advice or info on this topic would be...

Best affordable Adventure Bike

I want to start doing a bit of adventure riding and touring with the bike, but I am looking for a bike that I can also use as a daily commuter that is not too expensive but is still good value for money. Any suggestions?

R100 RS touring bar and grill

A long while back I had this idea of having a bbq plate/luggage rack, as part of a well equipped touring/camping RS.
Not much happened after I had the idea.

But 18 months ago while camping on the bank of my favorite trout stream, I found a rectangular pot/pan rack and a circular grill, quite a distance apart. Serendipity! It couldn't get any easier for a metal worker.
I knew exactly where they were going.





The way forward is...

Sleep Pads (and possibly compressor too)

Last year I did the hammock. This year I'm going with a tent.

Looking to get the low down on what everyone is using for a sleep pad. Right now all I have is a self inflated pad that is like 1/2" thick. Though it is long enough for my 6'4" frame, its really narrow. If I turn on my side, I roll off it. I can also feel the ground if I lay on my side. I would like something a bit thicker and wider; story of my life.

Self inflated? Air pad? There are those closed cell jobbies, but I can't see...
