  5. Employees Ride Their Motorcycles to Work in Show of Support for Charity Ride Woodcliff Lake, NJ – May 15, 2015…Employees of BMW of North America, L.L.C. welcomed Dr. Hans-Henning Buetzow to BMW’s corporate headquarters today and gave him an official send-off for his charity motorcycle ride that will traverse 50,000-miles and raise an anticipated 50,000 euros for children in need throughout the world. Dr. Buetzow will complete his Ride of Smiles journey aboard a BMW R 1200 GS Adventure motorcycle. His route, which will trace a symbolic 50 on the world map, will take him across North, Central and South America as well as Australia and New Zealand. His goal is to raise at least 50,000 euros for four charitable organizations: Doctors Without Borders, Christian Blind Mission, United for Africa, and Sternstunden, the Bavarian TV and Radio Broadcast. “We are delighted to welcome Dr. Buetzow to BMW today to give him a proper send-off on his long and ambitious journey,” commented Kris Odwarka, Vice President, BMW Motorrad USA. “I am confident that the bike is up to the task; and I’m sure Hans is too, judging from his previous adventures!” Mr. Odwarka thanked BMW employees who rode their motorcycles to work in a show of support for Dr. Buetzow. “Imagine your commute times 1,000, and you can understand what Hans-Henning is about to do. We wish him a safe and prosperous journey.” A resident of Heidelberg, Dr. Buetzow is an experienced and enthusiastic motorcycle tourist, who has been traveling the world on two wheels since 1989. Impressed by the enormous hospitality and joy of life shown by the people he meets on his travels, he was inspired to give back to those less fortunate through his Ride of Smiles. Donations can be made directly to the four charities or via the Ride of Smiles website (www.ride-of-smiles.de). For more information on Ride of

    Hello adv riders

    Hi all, long time rider here mainly dirtbikes (ThumperTalk member) and some street. Recently got a 2013 tiger and already jonesing to go out and explore. Have a trip planned to WVA in 2 weeks and there's a lot of dirt roads on the map
  9. How to remove the rear shock, replace a clutch slave and fill/bleed a clutch line on a (2011) BMW GS Adventure One of the cool things you may have found over the years of motorcycle ownership is first that you’re probably a decent judge after all of what’s really wrong with your bike and that you’re quite capable of fixing a lot of things by yourself. At least that’s what I learned in this case. It all started after completing the COBDR in July ’13. After this gnarly water crossing where I was going too fast through some too-deep water and the engine sucked in some water requiring a trail side air filter, oil filter and oil change, I started to also have an issue with my clutch. It was primarily on the way home. I was riding through some pretty hot weather from Steamboat Springs headed back to Irvine and it was probably Grand Junction when I first noticed the problem. I was coming off the freeway ramp and downshifting when I noticed there was almost no play in the clutch lever. The bike stalled because I couldn’t get it into neutral or use the clutch lever to disengage the gearing. I managed to park it at a Wendy’s, had lunch and then when I came back out and started it up again, the clutch was fine! It was something about the warmer temps or when the engine was hot it would act up. After I got home, I took it into the dealer to check it out and they said it was “just a bubble in the clutch line.” They flushed and filled and it was working fine. Well, it did work fine until the weather warmed up and it started to do the same thing. I then took it to an independent mechanic (since I was now out of warranty) and he said it wasn’t clear to him what was wrong. He did mention the push rod looked a bit worn and replaced that, but it’s only like a $9 part. He did run the engine quite a long time in order to try and recreate the problem but it wasn’t happening. Sure enough, when it warmed up again (WMRS ride in Aug ’13) the clutch went out again. At this point I had learned quite a bit about what types of clutch problems tend to crop up and my #1 theory was that the clutch slave was bad and needed to be replaced. I ordered a new clutch slave for about $155 (plus some new crush washers) and bought some special BMW clutch fluid ($26), although you can find a brand by Magura (Royal Blood Brake Fluid) at your local bicycle shop is essentially the same thing (Magura is the mfg of the clutch slave). The replacement process was really a breeze! So why did the slave fail in the first place? Was it defective? Was it normal wear and tear? Poorly designed? I think the most likely culprit is thermal shock, where the hot engine encounters cold water at a water crossing and that somehow compromised the slave. There is no gasket where it attaches, so I’m thinking that’s the most likely reason. We all like to blame the mechanics too, but I think the nature of this problem (only acts up when hot) makes it hard to diagnose. I will lay out the basics here, but the more detailed instructions are in the attached video. I figure not many of you will need to replace a clutch slave, but many more will need to take the rear shock off and perhaps bleed your own brake lines (every two years), so this should be helpful. Remove rear wheel Remove exhaust muffler Remove the top bolt of your rear shock under the seat. Using a strap to raise the swing arm high enough, remove the lower shock bolt and remove shock. You may notice you can’t get in there with a torque bit unless you raise the swing harm high enough. Two screws will remove the clutch slave; clean out back of engine w/brake fluid and install new clutch slave. Before you re-attach the clutch line to the master cylinder up top and the new slave below, flush it out with brake cleaner, then air to dry. Reattach clutch line using new crush washers top (near master cylinder) and bottom (at slave). Refill the master cylinder reservoir and attach ¼” OD vinyl hose to the bleed valve at the bottom. Using the process described in the video, pump the new fluid through until you see no bubbles. Tighten it back up, re-install rear shock (red loctite and proper torque specs) and exhaust and you’re ready to go!
  10. The solution for carrying more cargo on BMW adventure bikes Sandpoint, ID, December 18, 2015 - Black Dog Cycle Works (BDCW) announces their new BDCW Pillion Rack for BMW R1200GS and GSA Liquid-Cooled motorcycles. For solo adventure riders, a great solution for carrying more cargo is to replace the passenger seat with an integrated rack. BDCW's new rack puts the additional weight immediately behind the rider where motorcycles were originally designed to carry it, making it the ideal location. By moving the weight forward from the rear of the bike, riders should expect greatly improved balance and control. The BDCW Pillion Rack is a highly functional, rugged yet beautifully-machined product that greatly increases the carrying capacity of the Big GS. And, it works especially well with the BDCW Multi-Function Rear Rack for the GSLC or GSA-LC, but is compatible with most rear racks from other manufacturers, as well as the factory grab rails on the standard GS and GSA. Avid adventure riders will appreciate how the BDCW Pillion Rack mounts to their bikes. "Unlike other versions on the market, we intentionally engineered our rack so that it doesn't use the mostly plastic stock keyed release system. We found that the stock release doesn't take to the off-road punishment many of our customers give their bikes. Ours bolts directly to the frame." says Kurt Forgét of BDCW. The BDCW design has several notably unique features and benefits: A great compliment for the BDCW Multi-Function Rear Rack for either the GS-LC or GSA-LC Made of industrial grade gauge 1/4" aluminum Bolts to the frame for solid mounting-designed to take a beating while securely hauling gear Quick and easy removal with four bolts to replace the passenger seat Generous-sized perimeter holes give multiple tie-down points for gear Compatible with the factory grab rails for both the standard GS and the GSA. Anodized hard black for a durable finish Spacers and stainless steel hardware provided Approximately 12" wide x 14" long Designed, tested and manufactured in the U.S.A. MSRP: $195.00
  11. I think it was march when I decided to quit my job to travel around the world. I was already fed up with the work and the city (Istanbul) so the timing was quite right. While I was planning the trip and getting ready for it, I had an email from my friend from the US, Prentiss. We met two years ago while me and Noah (He is on a RTW also with his 690) was having our drinks at a new year’s party. Prentiss and her brother were visiting Istanbul for new year. After spending a couple of days together, eating kokorec, and the other usual Istanbul activities, Noah continued his trip around the world with his 690 Enduro R while Prentiss and her brother Clay went back home, US. Two years later, in June 2014 Prentiss was finishing her grad school and before the chapter of professional career in her life so she needed an adventure. Then the plan was simple, we would ride from Istanbul to Tbilisi together. She bought her flight tickets and it was on. That was the first time she would be on a motorcycle, but it was going to be fun. While I was getting ready and figuring out the items I would bring on my journey, I picked up Prentiss from the airport. I went there on the bike so that would be a good opportunity to warm up Prentiss about being a passenger on a motorcycle. A couple of days in Istanbul for sightseeing and later, we were ready to begin our journey. Prentiss was interested in Cappadocia, so that was the first destination. So that was it, I was in my garage loading up the bike to start a journey around the world. I was feeling excited, as my friends were with us to say ”Goodbye”. The odometer was 1227km. while I was wondering what the final number would be? It was early in the morning around 9 am, while we were crossing the famous bridge that ties both sides of Istanbul. I was feeling great, that was the beginning of a new chapter in my life. I took the highway towards Cappadocia. I know it was going to be boring for me and Prentiss, but I was eager to be in Cappadocia quickly. On another stop for fuel, I realized that it would be wiser to arrive in Ankara and call it a day. I did not want to push Prentiss too much on her first day on a motorcycle. So we agreed to ride to Ankara and then spend the night there. Luckily another motorcycle traveler friend İbrahim Yesilyurt was living in Ankara and he invited us over to his place. We spent the night mostly talking about traveling. A few drinks and it was time to sleep because we had to get up early for Cappadocia. Saying goodbye to Ibrahim and thanking him for his great hospitality and we were on the road to Cappadocia again. Ibrahim’s hospitality together with a nice Turkish breakfast made us feel ready for the road. It was raining early in the morning, but that was not really a problem for us. We both had waterproof gear, but I wasn’t trusting Prentiss` paper looking rain jacket. <img alt=":<img data-cke-saved-src=" http:="" xladv.com="" public="" style_emoticons="" default="" smile.png"="" src="http://xladv.com/public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png"class="bbc_emoticon" title=":)"> class="wp-smiley" src="http://www.ridemustgoon.com/wp-includes/images/smilies/icon_smile.gif" style="box-sizing: border-box; border: 0px; font-style: italic; max-width: 100%; color: rgb(66, 66, 66); font-family: 'Open Sans'; font-size: 13px; line-height: 18px;" /> (The jacket proved itself later on.) We had 300 km. ahead of us, at least we would not be on the highway anymore. Ibrahim led the way out of Ankara with his car, and then suddenly the sun started to shine. Prentiss was enjoying taking pictures behind me, and I was feeling she was getting used to being on a motorcycle. While we rode about 200 km.s it was time to feed the beast with fuel, and also our legs needed to stretch. I was also curious about the fuel consumption of the 1190. I had a 990 Adv. in the past and it was still my favorite bike ever. But unfortunately the bike had really high fuel consumption. To test the 1190 about that, I started riding slower, rarely going over 120 km/h, and my average speed was 100 km./h. That was a really big surprise cause the consumption was 5.2 lt. which is really low for a 150 hp bike. I was really impressed. One hour later, we were finally in Cappadocia. We both wanted to camp in the wild. Before checking for a nice camp spot, we had a late lunch in town. Later we bought some snacks and wine for the upcoming evening. I was asking a local about camp spots, and he suggested me to ride over the hills surrounding the area. 15 minutes of light off-road riding on the hills and then Prentiss pointed our camp spot. We quickly put up the tent, and immediately started enjoying the view. The light was perfect for photography, so I didn’t wanna waste that opportunity. As it was getting chillier while the sun was disappearing on the horizon, we had a beautiful view lying under our feet. I was feeling great, camping always helps my state of mind in a positive way. While it was getting darker, we enjoyed our local Cappadocian wine. On the next day, we decided to discover Cappadocia on foot. A quick breakfast at town and we were heading to the Open Air Museum in Ürgüp. I usually get bored in museums and I have no interest in such places crowded with people. But Smurf Village could be interesting. We walked around Ürgüp till afternoon. My plan was to shoot some photos & videos around the chimneys with the bike later, but heavy rain did not let that happen. In the evening we decided to ride to Trabzon on the next day. We had more than 700 km.s to reach there, and the road from Sebinkarahisar to Giresun was twisty. There was nothing interesting in between, so I had to ask Prentiss if she would be fine on the bike for such a long distance. In the past I did about 1200 km. on the bike in a day, but I was worried for my passenger. Prentiss seemed determined and sure, worst case we could camp somewhere if she felt tired. So we set our minds for upcoming day, had a light dinner with cheese, melon and rakı, and we were ready for Trabzon.
  12. January 19, 2015 - (Motor Sports Newswire) - KTM is incredibly proud that Red Bull KTM Factory Racing rider Marc Coma, who hails from Avià in Spain, sealed his fifth Dakar Rally title on Saturday and with it brought home KTM’s fourteenth consecutive win at one of the most notorious races in the world. While Paolo Goncalves took second place, KTM racer and Dakar rookie Toby Price took an outstanding podium third at his first attempt in an incredibly challenging Dakar race, which took place over 14 days and a route of approximately 9,000km through Argentina, Bolivia and Chile. Coma had a 17-minute lead into the final of 13 stages, although the race was halted on safety grounds due to rain at CP2 and Coma declared the winner. Red Bull KTM Rally Factory Racing Team again on top after more than 9.000km at the finish in Buenos Aires Coma: “I’m happy and proud. As usual it was a grueling rally. We had to overcome a problem on the second day that slowed us down a bit in the rankings. So from then on we had to change the strategy a little and push to recover that time. We knew that the marathons would be key stages and they were. I am happy with the team and the people we have around us. This fifth win says a lot about all of us. The level was very high and this also makes the win very valuable.” KTM team celebrates 14th consecutive Dakar victory Marc Coma tackled the Dakar with his usual passion and attention to detail, true to his belief that the only result that counts was that in the final day. He took victory in Stage 5 and was top three in six other stages. He also rode with care and prudence in the two marathon stages, nursing a damaged tire in the first and safely bringing his KTM 450 RALLY home across the salt flats of Bolivia in wet conditions that resulted in many riders having to exit the rally after salt clogged their engines and electronics. Fifth Dakar title for Red Bull KTM’s Marc Coma of Spain Stefan Pierer (KTM CEO): “That Marc Coma sealed his fifth and the 14th consecutive Dakar win for KTM is a personal success for Marc and each team member and invaluable for the entire company. The very strong KTM-supported riders have a large share in this outstanding overall result, above all Toby Price. His third place caused a sensation. The run of the 2015 Dakar Rally once again showed how unique and unpredictable this race is. Even stage winners like Sam Sunderland and Matthias Walkner didn´t make it to the finish line. The conditions were extremely exhausting for all involved. Everyone who made it to the finish in Buenos Aires is a winner.” Coma won Stage 5 on his KTM 450 RALLY bike Price: “To podium at my first Dakar is unbelievable. I’m shocked and definitely didn’t expect to be on the podium straight away. I wanted to be top 20, and I was definitely hoping to be in the top 10, but to cap it off with a podium is great. After the halfway mark we were in the top 10, but the goal for Alex (Doringer) and me was just to make it back each day while preserving myself and the bike; we just put our head down to keep charging and come away with a good result. It’s been great to see Marc take his fifth Dakar title and the 14th for KTM, which is insane. I didn’t know what to expect coming here, as I’ve done Six Days Enduros, but it doesn’t compare. It’s physically and mentally draining with the distance covered. The work behind the scenes is also insane. The guys work pretty much non-stop and on nearly no sleep. It’s a big team effort, and the result is certainly for the team and the rider. We can’t thank everyone enough, as there are so many people that have worked so hard.” Australia´s Toby Price third overall in his debut Dakar The Dakar 2015 was indeed a battle of attrition. Of the 168 starters in the bikes division only 78 were on the starting line for the final run into Buenos Aires. Final Standings Dakar 2015 after 13 stages 1. Marc Coma (ESP), KTM, 46:03.49 h 2.

    Definitely a good bike, no doubt. Although... I have to admit I'm not really the biggest fan of the parallel-twin engine. It has power and torque, sure, but I don't like the "curve". It's a tad too linear. Another thing I don't like about the S10, it's the...tank. Rather, the size of it. 23liters aren't really a lot, in my opinion, for ADVing or even for simply touring. FINALLY (I promise) I feel like the suspension are a tad...lacking. I can't seem to find a proper setting: a couple weeks ago I was touring in Sardinia (Island on the left of Italy), and even with the suspensions stiffened up, the bike was feeling "wobbly". Aside from those, I have no other complaints. LOL

    I lost my Goldwing in the Santa Rosa Fires and this is my replacement. I bought it used from a member here and I am very happy! There is something about the Boxter engine that just feels right. I do still look at the new Goldwing and the K1600 BMW, and the Triumph. Perhaps I need all of them?

    The Triumph Tiger 800XC is a very well made, light, and maneuverable bike. Very easy to handle off road with plenty of umph to hang on the freeway whilst traveling to your off-road destination.
