My new Klim pants showed up today so my gear is pretty well set now....except maybe needing more gloves. Getting down to the last bits needed except for basic bike maintenance and tires.

Guys,
I don't know when your planning to leave, but please check out the this web site before leaving :http://www.sopfeu.qc.ca/en/home-alert
A lot of forest fires are presently raging up north.

Have fun guys.
I'm leaving tomorrow morning heading south from Quebec all the way down to New Orleans.
3 weeks of utter bliss.

Any dirt roads to suggest while I'm in the Smokey Mountains region?

Yes, Trans Eastern Trail (TET)!

Get the GPX track here: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=508552

Our unfinished RR here: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=885008

The eastern side from DC to TN is very doable on a big bike.

The western side is around Pikeville, KY is a bit tougher.

Pay attention to the color coding on the tracks..which uses the ski slope coloring (green, blue, black)

Back tires on order.

Hey Marty....I know we aren't really planning on the camping thing but my intent is to pack the same as always, meaning I will be bringing camping gear for just in case situations. I think I will start laying things out and checking them this weekend. My tool kit should be in decent shape it just needs to be verified. Just so you know I am having problems with my servo assist brakes right now so hopefully I can get to the bottom of that this weekend otherwise it is going to get costly $$$$. I also found a guy with a relatively low mileage drive shaft that I am going to buy and install for peace of mind, since I am in the window for failures. Putting on some P3 lights tonight....holy crap those things are bright.....like irritating bright!

I guess the switch adjustment didn't fix the brake issue...

This morning everything was great and this afternoon not so much. The switch was loose this afternoon so maybe still a switch problem that I need to better troubleshoot.

Lakota, sent you the latest GPX route I have. I also sent a POI file of remote GFL (Gas, Food, Lodging). Keith, if you want the files shoot me a PM with your email address.

Current conflicts I see:

1) The Silo restaurant is a bit off the beaten path. Above Niagara Falls on US side. Have to play it by ear if we really want this one or not when we get there (if we are hungry or not..)

2) The plane crash vs the Quebec routing offered earlier are in conflict. Right now, the plane crash will not be seen.

3) Possible routing option using TCAT file which would Chibougamau to Ogdensburg, NY. More direct, all dirt, will cut off all Quebec & south on current GPX. I don't have a good grasp on difficulty/hazards, as I haven't read any TCAT RR.

Lets talk on Sunday

When I save the GPX file it saves as zero content and it saves it as pdf
Any ideas?
