RE: BMW vs KTM vs Triumph vs Honda Adventure motorcycle

I have a friend that I’ve rode with for going on 40 years, he’s been riding a Honda XR650 since they first came out . Road or trail, he’s hard to keep up with and....reliable as it gets. If I was doing a long duel sport ride,I’d get the XR with a custom Russell Mayer seat and have at it...

RE: BMW vs KTM vs Triumph vs Honda Adventure motorcycle

Riding on the road you wish you had a big cc bike, riding on fire roads you wish you had a 600-800 cc bike, for doing it all I like my 500EXC...250 lb race bike with a plate.

RE: Full Hook-ups or no?

Depends n the cost difference. We can go a week easy before we need a dump. If we’re staying at a nice spot for a couple of weeks and I’m saving 40-60 bucks for a partial hook up, I’ll happily hit the pump station, park the rig ( auto leveling is important here) and go buy some 2” thick fillets with the savings. On a side note: Most of the really nice state parks we’ve stayed at do not have full hookups...

RE: Chevy 8.1 truck with low miles?

I was at an RV show some time ago looking at a very nice very large motor home. I mumbled something about gas mileage and the salesman summed it up quite nicely, he said it gets great mileage for a house...never gave towing mileage a second thought after that and, my 8.1 has 110k on the clock.

RE: Do y'all see the IRONY here?

Is that setup wired into a big stinky generator?

RE: Point Mugu to San Pedro

For a day trip, go down the coast, leave at 6am. Stay till 8pm, take the 405 to the 101 home. If you go on a weekend you can leave at 7. I made that commute for 6 years and these days it’s a crapshoot 24/7...

RE: Solar wiring through vent, how to seal hole in vent line

Seems to me, the OP was asking a question on how to patch up a hole made AFTER the wire was installed, NOT what was the best method of installation. Maybe some of the more enlightened ones on this forum could spend more time working on their comprehension before banging out a bunch of condescending dribble...

RE: Solar wiring through vent, how to seal hole in vent line

I had to bring the wire for my rooftop solar panels down through the kitchen sink vent pipe. I drilled a 3/4 in hole to fish wire through; how have others sealed this hole?? Thanks, Doug Go get a plastic coupler same size as vent pipe. Cut in half lengthwise, notch the cup to slide over wire glue on and seal gaps with 3M 5200. Tie wire works good to hold in place while adhesive sets.

RE: Those with auto leveling systems

I haven’t measured but it looks like my Lippert system jacks have about 6” of stroke. If you’re on a site that uses up 4” of stroke to level front to back, you only have 2” of stroke left for side to side leveling so, before I do anything, I check both ways and if both are way out of level, I block the wheels and save the stroke for front to back. It sux to get the out of stroke code a 1/4” out of level.

RE: Overpass Minimum Height

Ok, this tread has got me all worked up again. I need help creating a national movement to make it mandatory that ALL GAS STATIONS POST CLEARANCE HEIGHTS ON THE ISLAND CANOPIES. I’m dead serious here, I’m 13-2 to the top of the AC and have drove by a lot of stations that that were probably good, it’s a bigger issue traveling cross country with the greater distance between stops. Anyone want to help with a letter campaign or anything else that would help? We need to make a big stink for a small issue.

RE: OnStar Question

When our Saturn was on hospice at 200k, used the onstar to download fault codes a couple times a week. I like that feature. Used it once on the truck when a coil went bad, there was a NAPA at the next stop, 15 min later back on the road. On the fly diagnostics is the cats meow.
