Gremlins....

Recommended Posts

..... well, anyone who knows Bugs Bunny recognizes that Gremlin - it seems my talisman has failed..

Solo two wheels trip to VT....

 

Blitz up the thruway twisties through the rutland area, get to warren, hit lawsons....dinner and sack out...

Saturday, great breakfast than a 380miles loops around the champlain area..stop in stowe for lunch at sunset then heading back to warren....

 

 Well, when your 5 minutes from your condo, and the back end is getting squirrely, you luckily pull in and see a flat and 5lbs of pressure.

 

Could have all been so much worse 5 hrs from home... she will stay parked for a couple of weeks, till I can get back up and trailer her home !

In 20 years and many miles, this is the first major problem, maybe the talisman was working after all.... :)

I have two suggestion, coming from someone who's ridden their Harley from here to Alaska, Key West, and Nova Scotia. Get Ride On.

Do your own research. But the stuff works on punchers, nails etc. That said I had a rim leak. This wont work on that. But I found FOBO.

I have these paired with my phone, Samsung Gear S3 smart watch,  Garmin Zumo. I can now tell if my tires are low by simply walking up to my garage. No need to take my side bag off to check tire pressure. I'm getting too old for that. I've double checked the pressure reading with multiple gauges and it's within a Lb. or two of the FOBO reading. I highly recommend these for any long distance rider.

Harley to alaska?

Did you do that gravel road...forget what its called....

 

Thanks for the insight.....

 

Does that stuff muck up the inside of the rims?

I needed a new rear anyway...was hoping to squeeze this trip in before replacing it.....once again murphy and the gremlin crew showed up...

The Alaskan Highway. Yeah it has some pretty bad areas. In some sections you have to wait for a guide truck to take you threw it. Sometime more then 20 miles of zig zagging around pot hole big enough to loose a small car in. If I look hard I'm sure I can find some muck from that road somewhere on my bike. Just look at my windshield.

 The Ride On wont harm the rim and isn't like Slime which can attack aluminum. You also don't need to balance your tires with weights anymore.
