My turn

For the new airbox that its. After the high speed run down IH 10 (80 mph legal speed limit) my bike high idled in Alpine. I did the TPS reset without pulling the battery cable and it calmed down. Didn't get another happenstance, but it did the on/off throttle a few times.

So, LoneStar BMW is slapping a new airbox in on the 16th.

Good show, I was on I-10 today, but not strafeing, had the Versys to let a friend test drive in Lafayette, La. 455 miles round trip in 8 hours, I missed the P40, er GT.

Good luck on the air box upgrade, and be looking for a report on the difference. I had a lot of bad weather down time during my install so my memory got foggy.

I get mine back this Sat, weather permitting. It's done....new box and version 11 something. Was supposed to get it last Sat but woke up to 8" of fresh snow. Yes I live in MT but I'm frigging sick of winter!

I'll let you know how it goes as I plan on putting on a few thousand miles. Somewhere warm!

You're always welcome down by me, Robert. I've got plenty of room in the backyard for a tent.

And I just have spare rooms. That way you won't have to sleep with the armadillos and coyotes.

Hey Ken, I drop shipped some new panels to David Kinsey. He did the flame job on Barrett's bike and used to ride the yellow LT. He's gonna do the P40 thang on them and I can't wait to see it. The boy is a real arteest!

New airbox

I am getting my airbox on tomorrow with a Remus Powercone and a Marsee tank bag. I did not get the high idle but didn't want to wait for it to happen so I asked to have it done. I am also going to have them change the final drive oil again too. I am over 9300 miles now and spring has sprung.

Sheesh, now I feel wimpy. Was going to ride today but it is like 55, over 20 degree drop yesterday. I went through a rain storm for about 5 miles, wind like 30 knots from EAST? Temp was like 80s in Lafayette, then boom 60s coming in. Glad I packed my liners.

We have room in the llama shed for small tent.

Does it have a creek? Or maybe a storm drain at least? BTW, that was only offered AFTER you expressed a desire to come through solo during the busy season. And some guys like to camp. If you come up, and want a bed, roof and hot shower. I'll find you one.

And.....California yes.....urban city areas no freakin way. Unless of coarse I need a new set O'skins. Which I will. I'm thinking Death Valley, Joshua Tree, then over to AZ, NM and TX. No tents either. I do enough of that back here each year. At this point in my life 2 wheels = bed and hot shower at the end of the day. (However a GS and a couple months off in the summer with all my gear into the heart of BC would be a different story.)

Grif, Coyotes and armor rats don't bother me, though the latter sometimes stink to high heavens. What freaked me out in Tejas was camping in the Davis mountains. Javelinas. Every night, and then again first thing in the morning a pack of them would go through camp 4 feet away from my tent. Nasty looking tusks on some of them. Big signs about them killing dogs every year.

Well some body has to be last!

I was thinking about ridding the mountains of Texas in several weeks. My son lives in Midland and it's only a couple hours drive from his place to some of the most beautiful and desolate vistas in the country.

I just had another bucking encounter on Sunday so yesterday called San Jose BMW and wrote it all down on an e-mail. Got a reply today saying they will do the airbox on mine next week.
