Re: 1986 XL600R Tire Help

Back in the day, if you wanted a good DOT dualsport tire that is aggressive enough to satisfy, the Dunlop D606 was the go-to.

Re: Butler County Gravel Days May 1st and 2nd

Same! Great meeting you, Josh (and Ante, too). Good times at camp, exploring the property there, sitting around the campfire, and heck, even the gravel road riding! Thanks for snapping that photo, Josh!

Ticks hate tea tree oil

I enjoyed the Butler County Gravel Days this past weekend. I followed ajayhawkfan around the Flint Hills--had a great time as always when he leads. I put 520 miles on my F800GS. I also arrived home with a couple of ticks embedded. My wife read that a drop of tea tree oil will make them release....an...

Re: Eufy Security Cameras

Thanks for the report, Hank! I just ordered one of the Eufy outdoor cameras that includes a small flood light, and will install in a particular area I want to not only record activity but discourage activity. I figure the light coming on with the motion will help deter jackholes. I remain super-impr...

Re: Post pics or video from your ride today

The "Lindsay" safiri refers to is an adult. Ajayhawkfan is correct, of course. My information is a decade old, but my cousins farm in a rural county where it's legal to operate ATVs on the county roads without a driver's license. You have to have a safety flag and maybe register the ATV---don't know...

Re: New ADV rider in Paola, ks

Welcome, Motorider78! The TARKC group seems to have morphed into more of an email chain, but Randy does post some info in this TARKC forum . They usually announce a monthly dinner meetup. Normally, they put on a couple great rides each year--one in the Spring and one in the Fall, and usually (always...

Re: Butler County Gravel Days May 1st and 2nd

5 days out and so few details published! I don't see any way to communicate or ask questions other than Facebook. I have decided NOT to boycott the event over my hatred of FB. 8-) Maybe the mystery surrounding the event will boost interest and participation? Maybe it will keep lots of folks away? Ma...

Eufy Security Cameras

My family had some recent events that have motivated me to install security cameras. I was loathing the project with visions of running wires, trying to get power to the cameras, or crappy WiFi range/quality issues, etc. I asked my coworkers for recommendations, and turned out they had a lot to say ...

Re: Butler County Gravel Days May 1st and 2nd

As you would expect, the minute I learned of this, I added it to The Calendar.
calendar.php

This is a Google Calendar you can add to your own calendar so events just show up for you.
