Pretty sure 4trialsguy and I would be up for this. Would be best for me if it was before I head away to Off Road Skills on July 18th or after I get back on August 8th. I suppose I could just see the pictures and read the stories though...

I'm thinking of heading down toward Koocanusa June 2nd weekend. Anyone know of any good routes? (FSR etc)

You might find something like that at B & E electronics in the SE.

Could you let us know if you find one? I'll keep my eye out too, but I have a few uses for something like that.

As summer time gets pretty busy I thought I would start tossing around dates for this - how about the weekend of Friday July 20-22? This is the first post Stampede weekend. Let me know if you're interested and if the dates work. It would be 2 nights of camping - anyone is welcome.

Where did you find the other one you posted?

Did you try MRO (?) electronics just north of Bolt supply on 12th street?

I'm looking for a fuse block to add to my truck and keep the wiring clean.

Because this is often something isn't forewarned and thought of last minute but who knows about, or plans to go to the Horizons Unlimited meet in Nakusp, B.C this August 23-26th?

I hope to make it this year. Last year we were across the lake on a dual sport trip at around 10pm waiting on the ferry, being that we'd only arrive around midnight and would have to leave in the morning we decided to camp in the bush just south of Riondel and head back in the morning.

It would be fun to get a like-minded group together and ride out there. Lots of different options to get out there, some of which are a great challenge to make things interesting!

PS, if those don't know off-road routes to get out there I can preselect some on a GPX file with varying difficulty depending on what people want to ride. Unfortunately, once across the ferry my information is limited so that will have to be up to you to either explore, or ride the stellar pavement. It really is a good time!

i wasnt looking for anything special, he sent me out back to dig through the old wiring looms and i found two that looked ok, the one in the photo and a small (ATM) fuse block, dirty and rough, i asked how much for just the fuse boxes, 50 he said for the pair.... or 30 for 1.

he went on to say that someone might come round for the rest of the loom... i was thinking 20 for the pair, as it was just sitting out in the pile in the yard...

it was much more then i had thought, and hurts more now, that i dont need it. better to track a new 6 or 8 ATM or ATC fuse box online and have it shipped to your place then to run around


but all wasnt lost, he did send me off to a bolt store (think it was near blackfoot moto) was ready to pay a good 5 or 10 for this bolt that i broke, he said minimum was 2.10 for paper work... so at least i headed home with a smile....(but a lighter wallet)

I've been dealing with them forever and lately have been hearing that their prices are getting up there. Personally haven't seen it but it turns out to be true! Sorry to send you there. Prices are usually more reasonable!

Save yourself the trip. This is for Friday. You'll want to head out to Hunter Valley for Saturday =)

I might be going out there to take pictures. Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

I know its last minute, but if anyone wanted to do a quick ride down Alta road in Wiaporous this afternoon i would be interested in meeting up at Tims Cochrane at 12:00 (noon) - I dont have a lot of time this aft, but I thought a couple hour ride would be good considering the weather.

I know FlossandFly mentioned he would be interested, now sure who else is.

I'll check back here before I leave.
