Demo weekend…

November 24, 2011 · Posted in Misc · Comments Off 

Ride Now had a cool weekend demo ride event this past weekend. I got to ride a BMW GT1600 and a Can-am Spider. The BMW was actually pretty cool. I’d really like to rent it for the weekend and do a Jerome/Sedona/Flagstaff trip on it. It had heated grips and seats, XM/Sirius radio, and a whole slew of other cool shit. I got to meet a cool chick named Moira, who was the BMW lead demo sales person (and forum member. The Can-am 3-wheeler was fun to ride, but I’d never buy one, I need my motorcycle to “lean” with me.

Took the KTM to 7 Springs…

I made a last minute trip to the 7 Spring camping area this past Friday.  I didn’t get any decent pics, my camera battery was dead, so are a couple lame camera phone pictures…

I love my Safari tanks…

So I set another MPG record last week. 42 MPG and I went 449 miles on one tank of gas. Pretty cool!

I hope she burns in hell…

KTM is home…

But it is too damn hot to ride!  I’ll be taking the car on all my trips during the day for sure…

It is hot! Damn hot!

KTM is in the shop… Again…

This time for only a day I hope.  The heated grip on the throttle body was sliding around.  I guess the glue on it didn’t take, so they are going to re-glue it.  The right side gas cap also has an issue.  It isn’t making a tight seal, so the gas leaks out when I’m bouncing around.  After each ride, even 24 hours later, if you walked into the garage, the gas fumes would almost bowl you over.

Anyhow, GoAZ hooked me up with a nice BMW F800 GS to ride in the meantime.  So I’m good to go for now.  Even Capt. Kirk approves…

The KTM set a new MPG record…

So that means that I’ve been riding way too many highway miles and not enough dirt miles.  I need to get away on an easy trail ride, with no KTM breakdowns or falling down.  Oh yeah, it was 110F in Mesa, Arizona today.

Got the KTM back today

It was the magnet on the kickstand according to the dealer. How lame is that? Sure hope this never happens again.

Imposter on my RC51!

May 8, 2011 · Posted in Misc · Comments Off 

My good friend Andrew was in town from Michigan this past week.  He’s the ostentatious owner of a GSXR-1000 and the little brother of my best friend.  I had originally planned on us riding my RC51 and my KTM.  However, the KTM is being a bitch right now and is out of commission.  Thankfully, Andrew didn’t mind renting a Ninja 650R for a day.  So we cruised up the GWT until the pavement ended.  Then we backtracked on Cave Creek Rd, down to Bartlett Lake Rd. on down to the Bartlett lake marina.  After that, we cruised home for some forgotten sunblock and a short rest.  It got up to 100 degrees F this day.  After a short rest, we continued on to Canyon Lake and Tortilla Flats.  We again took the road as far as it went, until the pavement ended.  Overall, it was hot, but I had a great time hanging with my friend.  Hopefully, next time you make it down Andrew, the KTM will be in running order and you can finally check it out.

Here’s Andrew, big pimping, on the two bikes…
