A lawyer is driving down the road in his limo when he sees two men eating grass on the side of the road. He pulls over to investigate.

He asks one of the men, “Why are you eating this disgusting grass?”

The man replies, “I’m too poor, it’s all we have.”

The lawyer replies, “You and your buddy can come home with me and I’ll feed you.”

The man replies, “But sir, we both have families.”

The lawyer replies, “Bring them all!” So they all pile into the car.

One of the men’s wives turns to the lawyer and tells him, “Thank you so much sir, we really needed this.”

The lawyer responds, “No problem, the grass is almost a foot tall, you’ll love it ! "

Travelling light is the only way to fly! The BB is serviced and ready to go on next week's epic ride to the Chief Joseph rally in beautiful John Day, Oregon. As the seat's padding is a little thin I'll be resting me bum on a black sheepskin throwover. The 'luggage' is a tankbag and an Ortlieb duffel which fits perfectly across the speed bump on the back. It contains my sub-3lb tent, micro-sleeping bag, therm-a-rest, water bottle and a lightweight cooking set. I have put together a basic toolkit of miniature spanners & etc., a Cycle Pump, tubeless plug kit, duct (gaffers) tape, zip ties (black, not white), and a coupla three 15A fuses - one never knows what might fall off or blow up. Socks, unders and a coupla clean tees are all the spare clothes a man needs (can't forget the 'thinman' flask of single malt) when out riding and camping. I'll be riding down with three mates, all on roadsters of some sort, but riding back solo as I am not in a hurry. Let's see how she holds up. The most mileage I've done in a single ride on ol' BB has been a fifty-plus miler here and there on local roads. The weather forecast so far is for sunny and dry on the other side of the mountains.

I'm into flying light too - I can now do a week's wild camping out of a 50litre bag and using the topbox just for food. Sometimes modern technology beats the rose-tinted spectacles hands down.

Truth be told, the kit I take along when moto-touring is almost always light and nimble, easy to pack and stash. I make a check list, pile it up, then remove nearly half of it and put it back away. It's only when I have 'company' that it grows out of proportion to my actual needs.

Ta. Here's 9 minutes you'll never get back. It was 14.37 when I'd finished editing but Goob Chewb cut it short.  Rolling Eyes  Turn down the volume as the Ghost 4K camera picks up wind noise like paper crackling when turning the helmet to the right and plastic scraping when looking left. This is really my first serious attempt at using this camera which I've owned for over a year. I had it going last Summer but it'd only give me thirty second blasts - it needed a much better SD card, check. I needed to work out the three multi-function buttons which do everything with amazing precision, check (bewildering). I needed to carefully read the detailed instructions, check. I needed to understand the detailed instructions, uncheck. I am well and truly an on/off/volume/tone sort of person. Call me old fashioned.

K1200RS/GT hang the swingarm and gearbox on rubber mounts off an aluminium frame, a totally different design from earlier Bricks. It would require a) Larry Romestant, or b) Larry Romestant.

It was an exercise fitting the earlier 'bell housing' to the 12, then mixing clutch components, and whacking 1/2 a K11 sprag to 1/2 a K12 sprag, as well as the alternator drive being the engine oil vent.

Seattle's Pioneer Square, and the grimiest alley near the dumpsters behind all the dive bars & greasy restaurants, is the perfect place to act the urban crawling moto poseur. But hey, at least it still wears its front mudguard, and doesn't have clip-on handlebars combined with knobby tyres for their "superior" handling characteristics.

A sunny arvo ride along the Puget Sound through the forest, on some fairly good bends, with a bit of wind noise & a subtle exhaust note until it abruptly cuts off at 59 seconds... When I stopped several miles down the road I discovered that the Ghost Drift 4K camera had segmented the entire twisty bit into ten easy pieces. Bloody technology. It works when it works, but.

Ha! Well, this year is gone for any riding visits, since I'm away for six weeks from mid-September. But next year is a new year, and there's a spare bedroom with a firm queen size. No need to crash anything, especially the sofa.

TWB,
 Just out of curiosity how many moto miles (or should it be hours of seat time) did you rack up this year? I got off to a good start this year but since July life and hurricanes got in the way. I guess the good news is I still have three sets of tires in saran wrap to start next year.

With four different bikes I've managed 19,700 (31,700km) from January through November. There's less than six weeks left of 2018 and if the snow doesn't fall soon I should easily crack 20,000 for the year. Though it might seem I've had a lot of bum time due to the two main rides this year across the US and back through Canada, then Qld to Vic and back, this is about my average for the past three and a half to four decades. It includes my shorter trips and commuting. I have had a few 40,000+ miles years as well as a coupla dry years (1983 & '84) when I didn't - couldn't - ride at all.

I've got three sets of tyres I need to put on the recycle pile and only two fresh sets to replace them with. I still managed to put 14,000+ (22,500km) on my car for work, too. That's time I'll never get back as opposed to the good memories of my rides.

A beaut Sunday arvo ride, which reached 17c degrees, with a light breeze. Nimble is the BB, perfect for this backroad trawling. Stopped for a hot choc/coffee and spoke to 81 year old Grant, an engineer who built his own Harley and now rides a Victory 'cause he's "too short and this one lets his feet touch down."

I enjoyed mainly empty roads, a few detours, plenty of Wintertime sand and gravel mid-corner, but still managed to scrape the centrestand in a few twisties.  Smile

First of all, it is this very thread and the TWB build that encouraged me to start my project. There are many fine builds and discussions, but for one reason or another this one convinced me to just crack on with it...

So:

I like the K1200 wheels and will try to source & fit some on my -92 100RS. I have found out that I can find hardly any parts here in Finland, so everything I fancy comes with an extra shipping cost on top. In any case, are all (R / LT / GT / certain year etc) K1200 wheels ok to fit as described in your build? 

I can see you posted the measurement piccies for the front axle, but have you got a "blueprint" type measurements, as this info would be pretty neat to take to a machinist to manufacture ? 

Extra frame support: Where did you weld the frame stiffening supports? I am not planning on making the bike go on orbit, but I do like a stiff frame. I can already feel the bike give slightly on break / corner / break type movement. Might also be my own frame, as I am no jockey...

Frame question in general: is it ok to drill holes to run wires in the frame tubes, or will that break the tension etc?

TIA !

TWB,
Good to hear from you was beginning the think you bailed on us!
Was up in your neck of the woods last week and didn't want to bother you figured you were busy with the move. Got to meet up with Duck for good beer, bull, and grub.
Right now I'm just south of four corners on 160 with my nephew's bike with a rear blowout! Anybody close have a spare 160/60-18 for a R1100RS?
