Re: Have fun with it

#1. That money looked way to clean! You should have smeared some talcum or or other white powder across the money and ziploc bag. #2 Ask Laura B that if she is going to be up anyway, would she be interested in becoming a flagger or at least baking some cookies for the gang, always hard to find fresh...

Re: KTM Lithium Battery Charging Question

No need to pull the battery if you have the Battery Tender pigtail installed, I have one on my 690 and one on my Spyder.

Re: Dirt bikes for noobs questions

XR-Nut I've been working on a GPS track that runs from Eagleville MO to Willow Springs MO. The idea behind this track is to provide a connection from The Trans-Iowa Trail, to one of the Trans Missouri Trails that will connect to the Trans-Arkansas Trail in Blue Eye MO.

Re: Post pics or video from your ride today

Did some car camping this weekend at John Pershing State Park. I was working on a track connecting John Pershing State Park to Graham Cave State Park. https://photos.smugmug.com/12-May-2018-Ride/i-wkB4Kkg/0/59470b5a/M/IMG_0766%20%28800x600%29-M.jpg https://photos.smugmug.com/12-May-2018-Ride/i-GXh2X...

Got out on the 690 yesterday for a few hours, no particular track, just went west and starting following any gravel road that looked interesting.

Re: Dirt bikes for noobs questions

What no pics of the new machine? First thing I would do is disassemble, clean, inspect and depending on condition grease the steering stem bearings, linkage bearings, swing arm bearings, wheel bearings etc. Drain, flush, fill the forks to the correct level. Then start playing with sag and clickers. ...

Re: The Smackdab Run

I thought of doing this, but riding my Spyder instead of the 690 as it isn't exactly the best bike for covering alot of asphalt. The main reason to do this is because I was stationed at Minot AFB ND from 1985-88 and would like to see what has changed in the last 30 years.

So what if you call in an Uber request and one of these robots on a bike shows up?? May not happen in the next few years but I could see it happening some day.

It was great to finally meet up and ride with you guys, thanks again for the invite. It was interesting to watch the rear tire of that Africa Twin when it went into traction control mode.

If the road is gated or has no trespassing signs across it, I respect the landowners wishes, pull out my paper maps put a red x and a note on the map, and proceed to reroute around it. As for purple paint on trees it could be two different landowners marking opposites side of the road which I have s...
