  1. Hi Guys & girls, I've been having some issues with my Touratech IMO 100. Currently it's not displaying speed, which is not due to the IMO but because the electronic pickup is broken. I tried to change it out by a bolt-on unit from KOSO, but because the interval is different from the TT one (3 pulses per revelation instead of 1) the IMO won't display speed correctly. Dividing wheel size doesn't help either, because the IMO can't keep up with the pulses above 70kph and just displays 0kph instead. Other than above mentioned issue the IMO has been resetting itself lately, making me enter time, wheel size and some other parameters every other time I start up the bike. It might be related to the incompatible speedo pickup since that's when the problem started, so for now I've disconnected the pickup again. Will see if this helps. Getting somewhat ahead of myself with this issue I've been looking around for a replacement dashboard/rally computer. I could probably and quite simply replace the current unit with Touratech's latest offering. But at €350,- there are probably alternatives. For example, a Trailtech unit. Depending on the choosen unit this might end up being as expensive or even more expensive, but it will offer more functionality.And maybe there are other solutions as well, which I'm not aware of yet. So here's my question to you: any suggestions or insights on replacing the current IMO? I would like it to have at least the same functions as my current IMO (according to the TT website), but the speedo part of it all is obviously more important: Speedo mode with daily trip odometer Simultaneous display of: Speed Daily trip odometer Time of day Odometer Rallye computer mode Simultaneous display of: Total distance covered, can be edited via remote control in steps of 10m, 50m or 100m or be edited at IMO-100R50 Rallye directly using Partial distance (stage) can be reset via remote control or at IMO-100R50 Rallye directly Time of day Total distance covered or stage with large or small display Thanks!

    Review of my new Super Tenere

    That's a damn pretty bike! Looks ready for some long haul adventures too with the crashbars and stuff. If you haven't already, check out the review Fortnine did, it's quite amusing.
  3. I had a set with 3 sizes in them, and 2 sets of filters. Tried the smallest but was still not very amusing. But yes, I am slightly more worries of losing the custom ones, but them being attached together with a small string helps. Also, they keep the 3D scan of the plugs at the company I bought them from, so I can order new ones are a reduced price without getting new molds made. But at the bottom line, you're right, earplugs are in the ATGATT list for me :-)
  4. I've always ridden with the Alpine plugs, but I've also ridden with painful ears, even on rides only a few km's long. The plugs are not to blame here, but they are just not suited for me. Last year I had custom earplugs made, which made me discover I have quite narrow earcanals, which also make a more than 90degree turn. This was the reason for the Alpines to be painful and often falling out within a few minutes. So for me, custom plugs are the way to go and would definitely recommend to anyone.

    Yeah, at least they could arrange the clutch to be fixed (or pay the company that is fixing it at no charge right now) and fix the front-end of the bike. It'll make for better pictures of the GS in the future which in turn they can use for marketing again. Paid this time of course.

    Did Rev It Step in It?

    That's just about as much of a generalisation as any. Just like not every American is an idiot with a gun not every European (or any other person in our floating rock for that matter) accepts media reporting at face value and doesn't look beyond for context.

    Did Rev It Step in It?

    Both my first and current gear are from Rev'it although I have and do own gear from other brands, so no specific brand loyalty here. I'm quite curious to see if Rev'it reacts to this, but am not inclined to have these kind of comments influence my next purchase. I very much disagree with the comment itself (as far as it matters, I'm Dutch too), but I consider it probably not very serious, a generalisation and most importantly personal and unrelated to the brand. I would be far more inclined to consider not buying from companies that actively support the closing of trails than from companies that have an type-first-think-later employee working for them.

    '08 BMW R1200GSA headlight

    Got around to swapping it yet? I've been meaning to switch out my lowbeam for something brighter and whiter. The Revamp headlight had a kind of weird setup IMO (but I'm no export) with a halogen lowbeam and HID Xenon highbeam.

    Chickens roosting?

    Based on the mentioned final photo I'm guessing they mean the gully (caused by erosion) running accross the trail on which he hit the rearwheel. I do wonder if them mentioning Kellon jumping the GS has anything to do with it though.

    I was getting curious about the GSA but it took me quite some scrolling in your IG feed before finding it ... It is pretty though.

    I'm terribly picky about gloves, if there's just a little bit tension between my thumb and indexfinger cramp is guaranteed. Not going to discuss control with my wintergloves, but for summer I recently bought a pair of Rev'it Striker 2's which I'm really happy with, and they're thin and supple enough to not compromise control IMHO.
