Re: Interstate Blast from NC to Florida and Back

I set up a trip via US-1 and other routes, but they all converge in southern GA. In addition, the estimated drive was 12 hours as opposed to 9 in actual experience.

Re: Interstate Blast from NC to Florida and Back

There were many cases where trucks or clueless drivers drove ten or more miles per hour under the speed limit on the two lane sections of I-95. I had to carefully gauge my speed and get into the left lane to pass, while worrying about drivers who drive ten miles per hour (and more) OVER the speed li...

Interstate Blast from NC to Florida and Back

Twice a year, my Brother in Law invites me and several friends to stay at his condo in Ormond Beach, Florida and go motorcycling in the area. Usually, I ride my BMW R1150RT, but I decided to surprise him with my choice of ride this time. On Monday, 7 May 2019 I traveled to Ormond Beach, Florida on m...

Re: JDH - Fall 2019

I'm sorry I'm missing the ride. The engine is out of the Iraq rig for a rebuild. I'll pick it up next week. I plan to attend the next Spring JDH.

Re: I Need a Fastener for Oval Air Box

Okay. Replacement done. I used 6mm threaded rod, stainless washers, acorn nuts and stainless machine screws on the left side, which is most visible. I used the stock fasteners on the right side. (Of course, when I was at the hardware store, I discovered "connector nuts" which are used on furniture, ...

Re: I Need a Fastener for Oval Air Box

I have a solution. The original rods which hold the sides together are too short to put regular nuts on them. The local Fastenal store has 6mm x 1.0 threaded rod in stock. I'll cut pieces to fit the airbox, use the original fasteners on the right side and replace the "mushroom" fasteners with stainl...

Re: I Need a Fastener for Oval Air Box

If worse comes to worse, I can drill out the threaded holes on the right side, buy SAE threaded rod and use acorn nuts, but I really want to keep the original appearance.
