    The one thing I struggled with, was getting the notification from my Uniden DFR9. It's made to be mounted in a car, so the voice notifications work really well with a different sound for each band...

    I suspect if you look around on eBay or perhaps Amazon, you can find a used GS-911. I had a friend at work who traded his GS in on a KTM and so he sold me his older GS-911. If I couldn't find a...

    In the summer months, I am fortunate enough to take some long day rides up to places like Artist Point on Mt. Baker where it is snowed in much of the year. And then there's trips like the one I...

    So now, I'm wrestling with my next trip. "WeSTOC" was a rally planned for late August in Park City, Utah. They cancelled it for the coronavirus. Which also means that the roads will be wide open...

    I know what you mean. When you ride and you don't think about what you're doing. You just do it. The bike and you are one.

    And the F800GT is perfect in that way. It does everything well. ...

    I wouldn't think it was needed for the PR4. I used the regular PR4 on my Honda NT700V and it was still good with 17,000 miles on it.

    The Metzeler Roadtec 01 originally said the HWM (or GT)...

    Whatever location you use, be sure to use a switched power source. The wires don't need to be huge either. The radar detectors don't pull a lot of current.

    Did you get the new version of the V1?...

    My previous bike was a 2011 Honda NT700V, a sport-touring bike. More than once, I thought how well it was made to put the miles behind it. So when I sold it with 30,000 miles, I felt those were...

    I wonder where this will all lead to. And I'm astounded at the numbers...which just goes to show how much money they must have to play with if they can spend $42M on restructuring. Wow.

    I don't have leaking seals yet (my fingers are crossed and I'm knocking on wood), but the question comes to mind...where do you buy SKF seals?

    FWIW, I've now replaced both the front and rear sensors using the parts described above. It's simple, convenient and a lot less expensive than going to a dealer for the replacement.

    I'm at just under 58,000 miles now. By the time I sell this GT, it won't be worth much, no matter whether it has a stamped book, or not.

    And right now, it runs like new. :)

    Beartooth Pass is stunning and one of those rides you want to do if you are anywhere close. But you have to be prepared. The first time I did it a few years ago, it was cold and windy. I both...
