I was on the road for nine days back in July 5,700 miles total. I got as far west as Chino Valley AZ several days temps were over 100 degrees. I had rain gear on 6 of the 9 days and it was hot with the rain gear on. I've never washed my rain gear but I did this time when I got home.2000 miles of rain!!! Best line I've read today! Hope it kept you a bit cooler
Amsoil, Dave? I thought you always used Mobil 1. Are there any advantages to using the Amsoil? Did you get it like you used to get Mobil 1? Some members on the K1600 site say it's the best there ever was. Knowing your engine background, I'm partial to your thoughts more than any other!Last job for today is change the engine oil.
I got the Amsoil for free and it is good oil.Amsoil, Dave? I thought you always used Mobil 1. Are there any advantages to using the Amsoil? Did you get it like you used to get Mobil 1?

I agree. It doesn’t quite compare to the Swiss Alps and Italian Dolomites or even Jasper and Banff in Canada, but I’d probably rank it 3rd or maybe 4th on my list as the Colorado Rockies rate very highly also and are more expansive than GNP. A great place though and another bucket list item checked off.One of my favorite places on the planet, and definitely my favorite National Park.
When I had my LT inspected a few weeks ago, it had just rolled over 90,000 miles and the brakes still have at least 3/32 (probably 1/3 of new) and our state only requires 1/32 on motorcycles so I probably have another 20,000 miles in them.Inspected front/rear brake pads by removal. With 20k on them, looks like the front have 3/4 and rear 7/8 left. Surprised me as I purchased new pads with the intent to replace.
JZ: I had back surgery in April and have been off the bike until yesterday. Felt good to get it off the centre stand, but now have to work with balance. Anxious to rideJust thought I would start a sticky to just see what is happening in the LT world.
Jean and I got out for a breakfast run and two hour ride in the Tennessee hills above Alabama. This is the first time we have been out since before my surgery on the left thumb July 13th. It felt really good to get out and ride again on the LT.
