Re: Cyclists

I am a cyclist as well, not as many km as I used to but still do ride pushies. Its the same here in Australia, but seems to vary by area. I am in the Far North, a city, but not that many people really, wide roads, shoulders, and still some people will ride three abreast. There are also people that t...

Re: Tips on How to ride a R1100S

You do mention the drive shaft. Find out if the final drive or paralever have been removed recently, most likely for the Final Drive pivot bearing replacement. The drive shaft is re-assembled out of phase, it can have the effect you are describing. YEARS ago, I did the Final Drive pivot bearings on ...

Re: Engine rebuild,

Re: MotoGP

I neithrr boo nor cheer when he or another crashes out. That is wrong.

I enjoy watching MotoGP for the action, the thrills regardless of the number/team/ rider.

I would watch superbike as well if i could, and moto 3 and moto 2, but my TV doesnt allow that.

Re: MotoGP

maybe another rider has better statistics, but I think in recent years, lets say the last 18, the difference in ability of the bikes is much less than 50years ago. Therefore, its harder to get a edge, a large delta, larger margin and so it takes more balls, increased risk, higher skill. I remember t...

Re: MotoGP

I thought it was a thrilling race!
right from the green Go! light right to the end.
It looked like a 'fast' race. Sure, they are fast, but they seemed faster than usual - not that I watch every race with detail, I watch it for the action, the moves, the thrills

oh, and Rossi - GOAT!

Re: How long do oe throttle cables last ?

Dont apply an lube down the cables. It affects the lining and they get stiffer / jam / sticky Check the bowden box for dust / gunk etc Dont know about replacing the cables on the 1100S, but on the GS, whilst not really difficult, is fiddaly and takes time Access on the 1100S probably makes it diffic...
