Boys....we are only a couple of days away from our New Mexico trip....I am so stoked!!!! This is country that have not ridden and I am ALL ABOUT adventure.

Can't wait to see some new country and can't wait to tackle my first, official adventure ride on my 950A.

I am also stoked that my son, TDBiker will be joining me.....riding as an official Kawasaki rider, on the RMAR KLR.

Additionally, my brother will be joining us on his VStrom.......very excited.

.....

I'm stoked as well..... although these allergies are killing me..... literally.

The LED lights are working very well now. The schematic includes a way to run both lights (Flood & Spot) when the Spot is on. Normally a universal switch only allows one light be active at one time. Anyhow........

The bike has been in the garage since the Cam1k.

Replaced the following:
  • Rear tire
  • Rear tube
  • Rear wheel bearings
  • Front wheel bearings
  • Steering neck bearings/races
  • oil/oil filter
  • Rubber tank mounts (deformed due to weight of 5Gal tank)
  • Rear Sprocket (48T to 45T)

  • Adjusted the valves (1-Intake/1-Exhaust were out of spec)
  • Clean and adjusted Chain
  • Installed new Cigarette mount in HDB Top Clamp
  • Rewired ALL accessories
  • Installed new Baja Squadron LED Spot light
  • Installed ADVmonster Flood LED light
  • Integrated LED lights into factory Hi-Lo switches
  • Disable the TrailTech 12v Power at night with a switch, so the Display will dim at night
  • Setup new GPS mount on HDB NavTower (custom mounts)


Lots of new stuff, hopefully nothing will break on this excursion..

The 9 big bikes are in Chama. We have 5 small bike riders mia. Could be a cold, snowy night for them.

990 is a small bike? We are alive sleeping in the game room (no cabins available) at a campground. Wood stove and a hot shower, life is good. The mud here is ridiculous, it's not really mud more like ice. Photos and videos to come.....

The Adventure riders had a real adventure today.

Ron snapped this pic. Here is Bernard & Marcus consulting about the crazy weather. SteveO, Projected, Bernard, JB & Marcus braved the weather to battle the mountain.




By the way, we are currently sitting around a wood burning stove in the Ponderosa RV campground's game room. Nice and warm.

It will still be cold but you guys could head south and ride in the Jemez Mountains. Lot's of great riding there as many of you probably know. I don't know just a suggestion as the weather is showing that the northern parts are in for more of the same and colder tonight. Good Luck!
