    Default Fobo

    Admins: Could you please be so kind move this to the Garage section. Don't know what I was thinking


    Anyone here using / used FOBO for Bikes?

    Just was wondering because just installed it and pressure is lower than I think it actually is (will go double check at garage after work or use the pressure gauge that come with the car)

    ps: was a choice between
    Zumo 395LM + TPMS Sensors = R 9,930
    or
    iPhone Handlebar case + FOBO = R 3,000

    ps2: If anyone after gps/sensors, Evolution MotorCycles in Benoni sell them for quite a few bucks under what they retail for.

    That's a pretty racy jap-looking NineT scrambler. I do like what you've done with it ;)

    You're supposed to check pressures when cold. Also graatsh pressure gauges are notoriously ***.

    Hahaaaaa!

    Your butt gets Pollsmoored after a while. That is to say, used to the abuse. I hear the yanks talk about Advil... that's ibuprofen if I'm not mistaken.

    Just a reminder, when taking medication, of any sort on a trip, especially alone, make sure you know the side effect to you! also hydrate plenty and take breaks.
    There are lots of people here that can give you advice on riding long trips.

    And start as early as possible so you stop earlier. When you're moeg and butthurt and the sun is getting low and still have a couple hundred clicks to go, it's no fun.

    Take a can of Mr. Min or some other detergent with you to clean your visor, and a clean soft cloth. If you can score a big handful of sealed wetwipes, that is prize number one.

    Don't use a scented cleaner - the smell soaks into your hair and face and bees will klap you after a long ride.

    Spare earplugs.

    A small can of chain lube. A mini water bottle filled with heavy hypoid gear oil, with a syringe for applying it, also works, but it is messy. Very good for the chain though.

    Tyre pressures when cold is essential. My daily drive (large horse - or motorbike carrier) changes from 6.1 bar at 13 degrees in kzn to 8.2 bar (tyre temp of up to 50 degrees C due to hot brake drums) on arrival in GP.
    All my posts are my opinion and not those of TB or TB Marshals or any other sane human

    Oh I was just kidding bro, ain't taking no sweets. Splitting up the ride over 2.5 days, sure will be fine. Will most definitely take the advise to heart.

    F*k that. BMW Roadside assist. :-P (just care to be in Wilderness on time for the course to start. Coming back the long way can break anytime it want, can't care less)

    I don't have a sidecar dude! hahahaha. 30lt backpack, duffel bag on rear rack (if that even arrive on time...stuff from rizoma/wunderlich/bmw takes forever)
