But when you don't follow and get caught the on the spot, instant resolution, secret peso handshake is usually the smartest and cheapest option. For example a speeding ticket. Yes everyone speeds at some point just not always caught. If you say you 100% follow speed limits I don't believe.

My riding partner had to cancel so it looks like I'm going solo. Will be leaving out of San Antonio early Tuesday and crossing in Laredo. If anybody wants to ride with me, send a PM. Looks like I will be on my XR.

Yeah, it looks like we will be riding in thunderstorms on Thursday and more rain on Friday! Sucks! 30% on Saturday too...

Re: 2016 MexTrek Galeana #5, Oct 19th - 23rd 2016

Has anyone experienced a speed dependent bouncing and vibrating with the front tire after installing a Tubliss system? My DRZ is doing it, and all the pressures look good and visually all looks well. Feels very sketchy at speed...

The front tire has 4oz of Ride On in it, but according to their website it says to use 8oz to balance a tire. Think this could cause the issue? The tires are brand new DOT Shinkos..

Re: 2016 MexTrek Galeana #5, Oct 19th - 23rd 2016

Tubliss has a heavish rim lock I believe. Doubt if only 4 oz of Ride-On would balance the wheel consistantly. Add another 4 oz first chance you get.

I balance my naked wheel once with spoke weights and then use the Ride-On to balance the tire and adjust for changes i.e. rim dings, thorns, etc.

I will pull the wheel off and get it balanced today, then add some more Ride On. Hopefully that fixes it! I couldn't imagine ridding in the rain with the front end the way it is now.

Who do you get to balance yours? I'm not certain my little local tire shop will have spoke weights..

Yeah I contacted ATT and they said it'll be $1 per minute per call, and $.50 per text. Still cheaper than the $70 Cricket phone/plan I was considering..

Hard to balance with Ride-On already installed but worth a shot.

I only compensate balanced my rims. Installed rim locks so added weights equal to rim locks directly opposite. Full dose of Ride-On takes care of the fine tuning.

What do you consider a full dose of Ride On? Also, how much weight did you used with your Tubliss system?

Re: 2016 MexTrek Galeana #5, Oct 19th - 23rd 2016

Looks like I'm not gonna make it. My brand new 1200gsa with 2k miles is having problems. Its been having this problem since I purchased it and today after getting it back a week ago started again. I know I'll never get it back by tuesday evening and I dont think they'll let me take a loaner bike to mexico

This really pisses me off. THX BMW

Log into your AT&T account online. While on the myATT tab, hover over "wireless", then click "view international options". Click "travel outside US" then "Mexico only". You will then see an option for unlimited talk and text and 1GB of data at no charge. Additional data is $20 a GB. As long as that radio button is blue you're good. You can verify under "view my plan and features". It will say "At&T Mexico Roaming Bonus" under your device.

I know that's probably clear as mud, but it would be a lot of screen shots to try and illustrate it.
