Next Meeting

Saturday, January 30, 2016 at  2 p.m. at Martin Regional, 2601 S Garnett.

Last Meeting
Getting into the seasonal holidays, the December meeting was scrubbed.

Upcoming Events
The lists have been compiled, the R.S.V.P.s are being setup in MailChimp for a count to our hosts on those attending our dinner on an upcoming February Saturday evening, not to conflict with big sports events.  Look for an invite to show up in your email box.  Current and long term and year past members will be invited.

New Stuff

Take a look at BMW Motorrad; they have displayed two innovations at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in UntitledLas Vegas on 6-9 January 2016. Laser light for motorcycles and a helmet with a head-up display will be presented, setting new standards of motorcycle safety, along with a technical outlook of how they may be employed in series models of the future. More.

I’m waiting for the phaser kit for the car pulling out in front of me.

Another manufacturer already out with a heads-up rear view camera is Skully.  Their grand and a half helmet on their web site shows a display with speed, view out the back, and GPS instructions incorporated within the helmet’s electronics.  Check out their video of a rider on a MotoGuzzi. Might be beneficial to purchase extended warranties on these bad boys.

Where to go – Club wise

Recall for Rear Hub Cracks

Shortly after announcing their best January ever, BMW sent out a recallBMW R1200-R on thousands of K and R-series motorcycles.

The “technical campaign” addresses a well-documented weakness in the rear wheel flange where the brake rotor attaches. Overzealous tightening of the brake rotor or wheel bolts can crack the hub and cause catastrophic failure. That’s bad. Continue reading Recall for Rear Hub Cracks

Next Meeting
Tuesday, September 9th at Martin Regional Library at 2601 S Garnett at 7:00 pm.

A number of upcoming events, including final preparations and countdown to our Indian Nations Rally, Sept. 26-28.

Last Meeting
Show and Tell this month was a set of Italian boots made for industrial use, Police, Fire Fighters, Forest Firefighters, etc.  Rugged looking things, made by Jell-O, er, Jolly. Apparently only one importer of www.motoport.com.  My one-size-too-small BMW boots were making my 2nd toe on my right foot complain about the room.  At that time, I pulled up my foot to rub the spot through my athletic shoe and someone mentioned they didn’t need to see.  Sorry folks, I wasn’t going there.  The new boots don’t have that problem, with the left foot having excess room for guests to join in.  I need to find a fellow with my size feet, on the opposite sides.
