Mike, I have to say it was the best place I've ridden the SE yet. When we rode we were on loose unpedictable rocky stuff. At DP the trails feel like a curvy road with great traction and they'll make you smile. Heck all the trails were awesome. I even ran some singletrack trails. The dragstrip was fun on a 950 . The GP track was good for that bike too. Had a blast out there and I feel the bike is amazing for my size. I went by myself not knowing exactly how much fun I'd have, but it was one of the best times I've had there. I felt so good that I found myself wanting to race this thing (but I'm looking for a 250). We should go. I highly recommend DP for getting down on the big twin. I made a few videos from the ride too. Let's go!

For you High-Tech Gadget oriented DOG's out there

My wife had us switched over to Direct TV & new Flat Screen TV.

All the connections on these new contraptions are HDMI, whatever that means

I'm wantin to hook my old school TV in another room, up to the Satelite Reciever,
But the old tv only has Coax connection

Can you buy an adaptor that goes from HDMI to Coax ??

I know Coax & RCA jacks, but all this new fangled TV & Computer mess is over this old boys head

BD, just plug the thingamajig into the whatchamacallit...


We told Directv to pound sand last month. I haven't watched TV in over a year, Jan rarely watched anything and we were getting movies and the shows she liked on Netflix and Hulu.... So you are on your own, I couldn't even remember which buttons needed to be pushed to change the channel.

You can get an HDMI to coax converter for about $50, but if your TV is that old, you'd probably be better off buying another new TV for the other room, especially if you have HD. The coax won't do High Def.

Must be the water.

People look at me like i just told them I don't have indoor plumbing whenI tell them we don't buy real time tv.
My money is better spent in beer and pointless holiday advrider challenges.

How old is school?

Many sat boxes have 'component' connections to. Looks like this

If set is way back, may have video in S video which some boxes still support.

Is there a model # on the set box?

Darnell, I also watch very little TV but a chicken rancher gotta watch the Weather

Twisty, $50 bucks is a lil stout for an adaptor

Sutherngintlemen, The Sat reciever has S video & RCA "Component Video" jacks, but is that Input or Output = it dont say

Chris, The TV is a little newer than Fido's but only has Coax & RCA jacks

No S vid or computer lookin connections .....

You could pay the $6 or so per month for a second HD receiver. If your old TV has nothing but coax, get a RF modulator and run composite from the receiver to the modulator and coax from there to the TV. Then you could watch your own programming, as opposed to trying to run HDMI cable to the other room or put in an expensive wireless HDMI transmitter, and after all that still be limited to watching whatever's on the other TV. A second standard def receiver would be all you really needed, but I don't think it would work with your high def dish.

I don't think DirecTV has this, but what we did with Dish Network was get their dual HD DVR receiver, which comes with two remotes, one for a second standard def TV. An infrared signal goes from the receiver to the 2nd remote, and the two TVs can watch separate channels and both have access to the DVR functionality.

Put a little aluminum foil on them. I hear they pick up better that way.
