Can your motorcycle do this? Nope. Didn’t think so. We were three up on the Ural this weekend. Nope, that isn’t my wife on the back either. We had some guests who drove up from the south to brave the cold Minnesota fall weather at 55F.

Last week was First Thursday at Dulono’s in Minneapolis. It was the first time I’ve been there since July. The weather was perfect which drew larger than average crowds for this time of year. October didn’t disappoint as there was lots of interesting bikes to look at.

My R1150GS is finally fixed and back in action after several months of messing around with delays fixing the brakes. It all started with a leaky brake line, then a stuck banjo bolt, and finally I broke a fastener on the caliper and had to replace it.

Previously, I had posted how I broke the bleed cylinder off the right front caliper on my 2001 BMW R1150GS. I tried many things to solve the problem as I didn’t want to buy a new caliper for $400 from BMW. It’s good to have friends!

I was shocked to realize I hadn’t written this post yet. The final day of my “BigTrip” from earlier this year – Chicago to Minneapolis: August 13, 2011. My original plan was to ride from Chicago to Milwaukee along Lake Michigan like I did in 2010, but I received a call from my wife and changed my plans.
