Re: 1985 Gold Wing Limited Altimeter

As it works on air pressure, you should know your altitude and the air pressure at that time of setting. Be aware of a high pressure (usually still air), and low pressure (when storms or rain). You should be able to follow the weather maps for your area to find a fairly neutral day.

Re: Trip To Big Sur State Park - Lee's Honda Redding CA

We are having a cool day, today, so I have had to put a pullover on to ward against the cold of 23C (about 75F). The grapes are just coming on the vines, so think of me in my shorts (not underwear), sitting in the sun and peeling the grapes that I do not eat whole! No white stuff here!

Re: Trip To Big Sur State Park - Lee's Honda Redding CA

Well, Mag, thinks have been busy, but non-productive. I have had some health issues, my brother (younger) smashed his leg interstate, and spent 7 weeks in hospital. I had to retrieve him, then arrange for him to fly to Darwin from Adelaide (about 3000 Km), with a wheelchair. Then empty his car (trav...

Be careful removing the working parts from a fridge, they do have dangerous gases that can cause serious problems (phosgene is one).

Thanks, Brett and Sid, our cricketers did not start off too well against the Kiwis (New Zealanders), but the bowlers are practicing hard, from what I hear. The coach comes from about 30 Km away from here, the well known coach and former all-rounder Darren Lehmann. Cricketers are like the American a...

After the Sep17 meet-up at Hocking Hills, if it is worthwhile to repeat, then please think of those that are on a fixed income and need to save their shekels (or whatever local currency), and plan for a trip away from home. Perhaps to run into a GWRRA meeting of some sort, just for the ideas one ca...

Re: 1982 GL1100A Headlight dims but no starter activity

Your starting it once a week has probably used up a lot of jolts in the battery. The time that you are running it is not enough to put them back, as you do not get a good flow while it is idling or just running above idle. You should put it on a battery charger, no more than 12 hours (unless it is ...

In the scenario I raised, it would not matter if you were at 90 degrees north or south, or anywhere in between! Starboard is on the right, and Port is on the left, and still will be the same even if you travel east-west, west-east, north-south, south-north, or any combination. :roll:

Here in the Far South, we are cooling our heals inside. With outside temp of 42.2C (about 112F) at midday, I, together with dogs, are carefully studying the aircon effects while one dozes. We have not come to a conclusion yet, so we will have to keep studying.

Re: Trailer picture thread

And if you ride on the correct side, you should take advantage of the doors being hinged on the starboard side (right), so that while you are accessing your tools, drinks, food, etc on the left, you do not get impaled on an 18-wheeler or larger passing by.
