Re: Ocala FL

I said "etc";) Most critical things are ordered except the full wrap handguards. I'll destroy controls w/ the flimsy stock guards (BTDT.) Not settled on which ones to get yet. I have the BRP hand guard mounts on one of the other bikes and it runs into the clutch hose pretty bad (I need to cut it for...

Re: Ocala FL

I'll try! I have on my 'todo list' to mount my other quadlock mount on the 150 so I can get to my cellphone cam quick. I also have a rugged Olympus TG6 pocket cam that should survive me repeatedly falling on it.

breaking in the new 500 Stephen?
Not enough time to get it ready unfortunately. Skid plate/etc won't be here in time. I've decided to take the 150XCW since its >20kg lighter than my older 500 (and Dan's 2016 500!). Knowing him, we'll be picking up and pulling the bikes out plenty.

Re: Ocala FL

Nice Jed! The B&B is booked. 27th-4th. FL here we come! Need to figure out how to hang the ~14' kayak inside the van this weekend. Ordered a Shinko 540 earlier this week. Hope that's decent enough. Phoo, yeah I understand sand is going to get everywhere. Bike is going to have to get a thorough clean...

Re: Ocala FL

Yeah, I'm debating which bike to bring. I'd prefer the 150 since its so light and knowing Dan we won't stop until we have to pull bikes out of it (likely several times). I've already ordered a sand tire (Shinko 540) but will have to decide which to put it on.

Re: Ocala FL

I've never ridden in sand. The guys in the Dakar make it look easy so I'm not too worried. :killingme:

Ocala FL

Exact dates not final but will include the weekend of the Feb 29/Mar 1 for sure. 6 days or so. We'll have an AirBnB booked if anyone wants to come down and split the cost. Short notice and va...

Re: 2/15, Post-Valentine Ride

Would love to make it again Bucho but I'll be down in Richmond (picking up one toy while dropping off another (Thanks Jason!)).
Jason, you'll have a great time! Your EM should be perfect there.
Stay warm guys!

Re: MD fees (buying new bike out of state?)

Probably going to leave this smogged/restricted for now. I need to get a skid plate and fab a spark arrestor insert first. I think I can share the Enduro Engineering tall soft seat I bought for the little 150.

Re: MD fees (buying new bike out of state?)

Ok, put a deposit down and should be picking up the bike in Richmond this weekend:) The 2012 will be for sale soon. FWIW, Ellicott city did call me back yesterday and offered a much lower price that was at least competitive with the others. Still a little higher than others and I was a bit miffed th...
