After going back and forth as to where I should take my SOLO trip this year I think I have come up with a plan. Head East, go see my family and some friends and then head West. I think it’s doable…May 17 – June 16? Need to replace my SPOT CONNECT as my other one seems to like to eat batteries more than usual and the battery lid does not like to stay closed. So, new Connect on order and over the next few months I shall get the camping gear together, check out it twice, before I leave get the bike all tuned up with new K60 tires and off I will head into the USA and Canada. We did this trip, different route in 2010.
If you build customs in Florida or the southeastern States, chances are you’ll know Moe Colors. Based in Tampa, Moe Roberts paints bikes for big-time builders like Dime City Cycles and Greg Hageman, and he’s also in demand for work on custom guitars.
We hope coming out in March. Yep TT had them first but since we have AltRider bars on our bikes, we shall be getting these for a few reasons. I believe they will offer more protection but also we will mount Aux lights to them. Since BMW raised the signals on the 800GS it’s been difficult for us to really find that sweet spot for LED lights. The upper bars will provide a great location and then of course the extra protection for the bike.
While AltRiderlower crash bars guard your engine from trail damage, add protection to the front fairings and radiator of your F 800 GS with a set of upper crash bars. The upper crash bars make a perfect spot to mount auxiliary lights on, keeping them far above the ground and out of harm’s way.
Revzilla is an online motorcycle everything you could dream of site that we have now partnered with on our blog. If you look to the right on any page you will see a Revzilla widget. Feel free to click the “ad” if you want to peruse their site and make a purchase. This is our little way to try to recoup some costs associated with running a blog like this.
I did not know this…someone made this comment…so, if you call in an order outside this blog and tell them about me, it would help…thanks again. Leslie
The reason I am writing to you, I ordered my first item from Revzilla. I asked them if I could get you the credit for linking me to them and they said yes. Since I travel, I am not able to use online, as my shipping address is always changing, so I call them direct. So, you might share to your followers, that you can get credit at Revzilla, by just telling the order taker, that you were linked/referred to them by; Advgrrl. They have you on file there and are happy to give you that credit.
Great customer service, no restocking fees on returns and if you call or email Revzilla you get advise from guys and gals who ride. No strings attached, simply click the widget on our BLOG and shop away. You might see more companies on this site which would only be companies we have dealt with and can 100% agree they are the best at what they do. In the end, this is something I thought would help this blog grow and get even better for the future having some sort of infusion of cash. When you buy through our site we do get a commission. Just being open and transparent here. Not a bad thing if you need gear and stuff and inadvertently support us too. Thanks and happy shopping.
I appreciate real life reviews which is what I try to do when it comes to those out there shopping for gear and gadgets. Tire pressure gauges are such a small but important part of everyday maintenance for our bikes. So, why not share this simple but informative review? We always have 2 gauges or three at a time. One for each bike for on the road and of course the garage. I just bought 2 of these based on this review alone. I don’t expect everyone to run out and buy this brand but can’t hurt to read about their warranty…
I wish I had the time to write such smart articles that many can relate too. This one for sure we all can….HELMET HEAD/HAIR.
I attend many meetings, provide many educational in services and have to arrive at my destination looking somewhat “professional”. Cheryl has short hair that takes her 2 seconds to fix when she gets to work. Me? My hair is fine and turns into crazy hair after I pull my Shoei off. I use buffs, LDComfort helmet liner etc. And some days my hair is acceptable and for some reason other days, not so much. In the end many of the office colleagues have learned to accept me and my unpredictable hair style for what it is….and most others, well? I just explain. When I can I will try and wet it and dry it at the site I arrive but that is not always possible.
Here is a pic of me that Cheryl took after riding the Dalton Highway. I am slightly embarrassed to post this but you have to see what a helmet can do to ones hair…it is hysterical. Click more to see…;-) Continue reading “How To Manage Helmet Hair”
Initially we had a deal with a company to make an install video and review the PDM60. But because I could not make good on my promise the deal sort of fell though. Went another route, bought two that we did not have to review and mine, Leslie will be installed by the dealer. Cheryl has little time to play with installations on our bikes but will hopefully be able to install the PDM60 on her bike after mine is done. Good thing about two exact bikes being in our garage…you can see or practice on one and then make good on the other. 😉
