Minnesota Trails / Camping

Hi all,

Family recently moved to Minnesota (Twin Cities area - St Paul locale) in August. I have an ‘81 Honda XL185s dual sport I would like to take to some trails to camp. Bike is plated and DNR tagged for MN. I will haul the bike on my hitch rack to a trailhead area then ride and camp.

Does anyone know of some good quality trails with ‘safe’ primitive camp sites along the trial? Fishing access would be a plus. I would be open to a sub-two hour drive to get to a trail.

Thanks for...

I have a new Pirelli Scorp Rear just rec’d. Born on date 2 yrs ago

I dont know about you all but I check the mfg date of my tires. I run Scorp org equip on my 950 because they work well in the sand and good on the road.
Probably my 4 th rear.
So i get it in and its 2 years old. I live in Flatistan aka Florida so dryrot is a real deal here and after about 4 years tires are dry rotted abd rock hard.
So I call Motosport and they say return it but the next one we send you might be old too. There is no mfg limit given to say its too old to sell.
It looks...

Rear ended at controlled left turn.

Minding my business on the way home from work. One mile odd from home, light is red, and I have to turn left. It turns green, but not for the controlled left. I wait. I'm the only one waiting to turn left, in the right of two left turn lanes.

It turns green, and before I even have an opportunity to turn the throttle I get rear ended. I wear ear plugs, but didn't hear anything (brakes/ tires screeching) until I felt the impact. The first sensation was of my bike shooting out from under...

Requesting comments about kickstarter holder.

A local long time BMW airhead tech is refurbishing my 5 spd transmission on my 74 R90S.
Asking about P/N 23 51 1 231 673, kickstarter holder.
Wondering who might be able to comment on the

stiffness of the rotating 'sprocket'.
The original was stiff and thinking it may be abnormal I ordered a new one from Max's BMW.
New one is just as stiff. I'll try to add a photo here that we took with a 6in Visa grip plier held on the sprocket:...

Garage Heater

Have a 24x30 garage. I live in NW Pennsylvania. I have R19 in the walls and R39 in the ceiling. Been trying to make a decision on a heater but keep finding reasons to keep looking. Wanted to get some feedback from people here who heat their garages. Had a full 220v heater from Northern Tool but it was killer on the Electric bill. Pellet stoves aren't bad but I don't want to take up the floor space / corner. I was thinking of going with propane but again, you got the extra expense of...

First timer here! My son & I, next weekend…

I’m a first timer and I’m taking my 5 year old son to monster jam at ATT Stadium in Dallas on February 23rd. Currently we have decent seats but I have no clue what else is worth adding?

Headphones for the loud noises for my son?? Pit passes and how to get them?? Come as the show starts or much earlier?? Etc.......?

Can anyone give me some advice on how to be prepared to show my son a great time??

Europe Fall 2019 suggestions?

This has been asked before I'm sure, but I thought I'd start my own post

This fall I may have opportunity to ride in Europe. It would be my one and only trip as financially I can't afford to do it twice. This would be with a tour company as I want this to be stress free.

All the areas look exciting, but if you could only go once, what area would you go? My preference would be for southern Europe as I'm hoping for warmer, sunnier weather.

I've added a poll to make it easy, if the area...

R1200GSw LC Wethead Final Drive change and Spline Lube Pictorial!

While not part of the BMW Service Schedule, it is a good idea to do this at the 6 or 12 K service. This is especially true if you do a lot of deep water crossings, ride in the rain often, or just put on a lot of miles. There have been cases of corrosion in the FD on several bikes, though not a large number by percentage, and even a failure of the FD splines on one bike due to corrosion. So, with that in mind, I decided to check a 14K mile and 6K mile GSw today. Here are the results, and...
