Re: Beautiful. A Pashnit Tour of Coastal California.

A special thanks

...to the Modesto BMW dealer CycleSpecialties.com for providing this BMW K1200S used in this Pashnit Road Test.

All the riders got to see the bike up close and personal and see what an capable sport-touring machine this is! Future Road Test Article forthcoming.

After staring at all the pics of this thing, if you are curious about knowing more, give the folks at Cycle Specialties a call 209-524-2955 (shameless plug). Put 1300 miles on this thing in 3 days, and wish I didn't have to return it.

Re: Beautiful. A Pashnit Tour of Coastal California.

Tim, great shots as usual.

What happened to me? Well, it's kind of embarrassing. We were reassembling our street tires onto the bikes after a fun trackday at Willow Springs. Mark noticed a collar on the ground, after assembly. We took both his rear wheel and my rear wheel off trying to find where it went. Turns out it went INDIDE the cush carrier ON MY BIKE!!! There were other projects in the garage. Possible it was from that Mini bike over there.

Fast forward to Saratoga... Coffee was great. Once on the road I pulled in behind TimM heading over to Santa Cruz and things started to slowly shake rock and roll. Something was wrong and it wasn't my vitamin box shaking in my rear bag. David Lin saw me checking things while scooting through the beautiful tree lined road.

After determining the problem, Mark, myself and new best friend Alan broke away from the pack and headed to a dealership in Soquel/Santa Cruz. It was organized pretty well. TimM had called ahead, told them we were on the way and to have the part ready. As it turned out, I barely made it to the shop. The rear sprocket was floating big time and the sprocket bolts were wearing a sweet little notch into the swingarm. A few cars got our attention and told us my bike was making a horrible noise "No S$@#! dude!" We roll into All American Honda/Kawi/Suzi where the service guy was waiting with a semi used Black 06 ZX10 to tear down, just to get to the missing wheel part. Insane service. They rolled the bike in like I was at a Neckcar race. I felt like Jeff Gordon (plus 100 lbs). One look at the inside of the swinger from Patrick and he put his tools down, went back to his bench and said "You are not going anywhere on that bike." I took a closer look and started to think "eBay". I was going to need a new Swingarm (sniped one $110) AND wheel (spied one at $200) and... the guy was right. I was toast. The owner of the shop graciously gave me a ride to Saratoga to get my truck as Mark and Alan broke records catching up with the group. ...and you didn't hear numbers like 120 from me. Or did you?

So, my bike spent the trip in SLO in the back of my truck... looser!



Again a giant thanks to the great guys at:

Re: Beautiful. A Pashnit Tour of Coastal California.


An awesome write up and pics (liked the vid too) as usual.
Sure is grand to see strangers become friends in a matter of minutes because of the shared Pashnit in their lives. Way to go Tim Now that I will have more time for riding in the future I will look into joining one of your Pashnit tours.

Thanks for the site and the shared pashin (minus the T) of riding on 2 wheels

Re: Beautiful. A Pashnit Tour of Coastal California.

Great post, Tim! After being away from the forum for some time (I moved from one part of the city to another and didn´t have internet), I´m once again fascinated how cool this forum is! The travel bug has bitten once again!!!
