  1. Yes it is. Mount Cheam in the back ground. I was just east of main stream Shittywack on the north side of the freeway. A rare clear sunny day in February.
  2. Thank you SQ. Mother nature helped out with the light. I think that was taken just after noon on a clear day in February. Not often we get such days in Febriary here on the Wet coast of Canuckistan.
  3. This is the second time I have repainted the bike. Both times with the OEM Sunbeam White, which I think is the name of that colour. And yes, it has pearl. The first repaint was partially covered with a one off wrap. But I crashed in Baja in 2018 and caused some damage. The paint was showing its age again. So back to the paint shop and repainted again for the second time with the same white with the pearl. This bike has over 226,000 km on it. That may help you understand why it may need repainting. I also rode if commuting through the winter too..
  4. I am a rank collaborator. That sounds sinister. My mom always said I was such a good boy so someone needs to look into this and see what's up! Its hot. Where's my beer?
  5. I agree with above. Quality costs a little more but I believe it is cheaper in the long run. BTW. I have ALWAYS changed sprockets at same time as the chain. Many others may not agree. Even if your were flipping it, when the potential buyer was to ask if the sprockets where changed as well as the chain, what would the answer be?
  6. 21,208 km may seem quite low to most. However, the odometer, on the 6th gen at leas., only has room for 5 digits. It reached 99,999 km or miles, which ever you have it set at, then it rolls to zero and starts over again. Add a 2 to the left side of mine. Yes. It has rolled twice. 221,208 km. This thing, regardless of some pretty severe abuse, runs like a timex watch. I have replaced the stator twice, and had a hell of a time trying to find out what was causing some problems with starting in first gear a while back. That turned out to be a severely won clutch. After the clutch rebuild, the thing ran almost like new again. The Honda tech who worked on it told me I should easily roll that odometer once again. I crashed this thing on some god forsaken road in Baja in October 2018. We just picked it up off the road, well mountain goat trail really, then I just rode it away.
  7. Hi 34468Randy, Thank you for your donation of 25.00 USD. We look forward to improving the forums with your donation. Thanks VFRDiscussion
  8. All the photos are nice Belfry but that last one is quite majestic. It really hits home in that one just how small our own things are in comparrison to Mother Earth. Fantastic. Looks like you really enjoy our nature.
  9. I need to get one exactly the same, but with a huge tear drop running through it. Green in colour as in envy.
  10. Awsome. I have experienced similar, but I was in a truck...not riding a bike. Incredible.
  11. I don't have an answer to that but you have a limited number of members who are monitoring this thread so even though there may be very experienced and capable people here, you are missing out on many. I suggest you consider posting a specific thread about this. You will get far more replies than on this thread I am sure. May the Gods of Stators and rectifiers be with you.
  12. I so wished I was able to be there. Is this an annual event or bi-annual event? Depending on just when it happens, I may be recovered enough from up coming hip surgery to make it next year. That will be the goal anyway.
  13. Ya guys and gals. Keep the reports and photos coming. I just get deeper and deeper into depression because I had to back out. I am sure I will meet with a couple of you for burgers and beers when you get back to the LMD area.
  14. I have replaced two stators while on tours. In both cases, is behaved like it had a dead battery. Matter of fact, the first time, I did replace the battery. Hope you get it worked out nd continue on your way.
