Re: Ducati Multistrada Enduro

Oh, I KNOW the bike I want....but right now my needs are met with satisfaction by these 2 in the stable: 2014 KTM 300 EXC 2-stroke: (4 strokes is 2 strokes too many) 2011 BMW F800 GS: I have beat the CRAP out of this bike, but it still gives me grins In case any of you are wondering, here's what a r...

Ducati Multistrada Enduro

I don't know much about this bike, and it would be hard to imagine it knocking BMW off the throne, but couldn't help but notice it in this latest Klim marketing email. The face of this bike is mean! Looks ready to attack.

Now if I could just a few million more people to do the same... I've always said, I don't want a million dollars--I want a million friends! ...and I want them each to give me $1.

Re: Safari 2021 News

Starting immediately, I have instigated a $10/mo fee for RideForum.NET members . Studies show that even a low fee will weed out most of the losers . Please mail your checks to Troy. If you pay annually, I'm offering a generous " 2 months free " price of $100 for annual membership. SILVER PREMIER MEM...

Re: WHERE to ride off-road

This list needs some updating!

I know some of these options closed. There are probably some new options not in the list. Contributions welcome!

Unfortunately, we ran out of disk space, so the command I ran to revoke his membership failed.

Re: HOWTO include photos in your post

$50/year for a photo management tool like SmugMug stings a little, but if it allows you to efficiently manage many, many Gigabytes of photos, it's probably worth the $4.17/mo. By the way, you can configure the SmugMug app on your phone so your photos are automatically uploaded into a SmugMug folder ...

Re: HOWTO include photos in your post

My bad. I had updated my security tokens with Imgur. Apparently, this change required me to "re-authorize" RideForum for upload access. Fixed. Note, however, that I do occasionally notice errors when uploading photos using Imgur. Seems the larger the file size, the greater the chance of an error. Fo...

HOWTO include photos in your post

People often ask, "How can I upload my photos?". My short but not helpful answer is, "you don't!" I created this screencast to show you the easiest way to upload your photos. I also show you how I don't want you to do it. :-D https://vimeo.com/477371585/3d1547e627 Caveat, the Imgur.com service has b...

Re: Watch Long Way Up

Cool, Luc! I had not seen that interview. I will watch it. My wife, Jodi, has loved Long Way Up so much so far she wanted to also watch Long Way Round and Long Way Down. We finished Round and have started Down. It's cool watching it with her as she has a greater understanding now for my week-long mo...

Is the pool big enough?

I'm putting an offer in on this house. Wondering if you guys think the pool is big enough. Also, should I keep the soccer field or convert it into pasture for horses? https://www.google.com/maps/place/38%C2%B051'48.2%22N+94%C2%B037'58.5%22W/@38.8630667,-94.6331149,228m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x...

Humboldt, KS Revitalization

I'm late to hear of the revitalization that's been happening in Humboldt, KS. The pandemic has slowed things down of course, but the progress is amazing--a real grass-roots effort.
