Marfa,TX.Did you see the ghost of James Dean?..Safe travels my friend!
There is supposed to be some lights on the horizon, but I stared for a long time until I hallucinated. Maybe I got my moneys worth from a flashback from the late 60's. However I did not see James Dean's ghost or the Marfa lights.
AMB, If you ever get back to PA, you should pm me. I'm in the Lancaster area. We could meet for dinner or lunch. We did meet once for a short period of time. It was along route 220 at Lock Haven. I was pulling a trailer with my EV and my wife's V65SP on it. You were on I believe a V7 heading to Florida if I remember correctly.
You getting that bike off the rack any?
Relocated the ECU and air temp sensor.
No more riding the bike for a little while. I converted the rims to tubeless but the front is now leaking air. It dropped from 40 to about 12 in a few days. I am not sure what I will do to remedy it. Stop leak? Or put a tube in the front. I don't really have a good way to jack up the bike and do it my self so I am leaning to stop leak.
I missed this thread so far, but it looks like a might fine mission to undertake. One thing.Why did you move the ECU & Temp sensor?Was it some sort of concern of the elevated temperatures that you might encounter on your travels
Try using some soapy water or windex to find where it's leaking before jumping to a tube. Could be a puncture you missed or just a loose valve / valve stem.
I did an airbox delete and that stuff was attached to the airbox. I don't delete the box for performance, I get rid of it to make servicing easier. There is now plenty of space between the cylinders.
Hi Alan, looks like your having an amazing trip, I'm happy for you. What was the cause of the front tire leak?Good luck on the rest of the trip and thanks for keeping us posted.Ride SafeEarl
I had a lot of those leaks when I used the 5200 marine sealant. In reality, that stuff takes a week to dry completely. I always wondered about using a fix like you used, but I figured it would be thrown to the outside and wouldn't get to a spoke leak. Let us know if it continues to work.
Antmanbee, what hitch carrier do you have? Black Widow? What's the brand/model? I have a Promaster 136" high roof with a factory tow package and am shopping for a motorcycle carrier for a lightweight (sub 400 lb) bike.
Jeez Antie, that’s a beaut concept of a trip you have hatched, just such get-up-and-go to conceive of such a thing.That van looks damn good, very damn good…..If I lived in the ‘States, I’d make darn sure that I made it onto your list of places to drop by and would ensure that any of my cohorts that were not too low life, could catch you on your whistle stop adventure. It’s so handy and appreciated to have a place to change the oil and do preventative/routine maintenance on the machines.If you are ever here in Oz, I’d collect you at Melbourne International and bring you home to the hills for a couple of days r&r, then you can take my V85 away for as long as you like to tour Australia, free of course.I hope you’ll get some good interest and offers of lodging along your intended route, but I guess it’d have to be publicised a bit in advance, that might be a fly in the ointment.I’d sure as hell want you to drop by, you’d have an encyclopaedia of anecdotes and memories from “the road” to share.Good luck and hope you hear from Wild Guzzi members in your area.Peter.
Peter, I may in the future take you up on your offer. When I am tired of van travel my plan is to head overseas. Top areas on my list are South America and SE Asia.I intend to slow travel spending 1-3 months in each location. Just living out of a carry on sized bag. In SE Asia I hope to make it to Bali too, which is a relatively short hop to Oz from there. Too many places to go and not enough time. I should have started younger.If you're inclined to come visit the western US I will meet you at the airport of your choice and then you can use my V7 to travel about the west for as long as you like too (free of course).On my traveling by van, I'm not in need of lodging, I always stay in my van. I was hoping some members had a place to park my van for a couple of days or so and then show and ride with me on some of their local nice 50-200 mile rides in the area.I am just meandering around out west at the moment. I will be going through Zion National Park tomorrow and Coral Pink Sand Dunes the following day. After thta I am not sure. Mostly just traveling where it is not too hot or cold and something scenic to look at.Thanks for the well wishes. Alan
