WunderLINQ, Hearing Protection, Honda Monkey and Bad Fuel.
Nov 22, 2018
Last weekend Guido, Tom and I did an amazing 1200km [750 mile] trip through the Sierra Gorda in Mexico. My BMW F650 GS behaved like she was supposed to, she devoured those curves and it was seriously one of the best trips we did together. The weather was perfect and the only thing that went wrong was a beer drinking lady backing up against my motorcycle while I was parked at a gas station. Nobody got hurt but that was sheer luck!
In this Black Friday special Guido offers a whopping 30% discount on Scenic credits and the Premium Forever package, he discusses hearing protection and touches upon a soon te be released gadget, the WunderLINQ.
Tom talks about bad fuel quality and the effect it has on fuel pumps; something he ran into during our last trip, and I bring to your attention the 2019 Honda Monkey; a cool toy to have.
Now, without further ado, let’s get rolling…

Fuel filter inspection
For most of our European readers, clogged fuel filters and malfunctioning fuel pumps are unlikely to spoil your ride. In countries with poor fuel quality (such as Mexico), this is a serious problem. In a little over 22,000km (13,670 mi.), I’ve had a clogged fuel filter twice, leading to erratic engine performance and some hiccups.
You know you’re most likely dealing with a clogged filter if you’re revving (thus demanding much from the fuel pump), and you notice hiccups in the gas response. This piece from the ride adventure blog runs you through the fuel flow process – I found it helpful when checking the fuel pump on my own bike.
