Question

Mesquite USRA race is Jan 26th. Getting a hankerin' to race again, if for no other reason than it keeps me in shape. Plus it makes for a nice break from the snow. So I have a question for y'all.

I sold my 300 and now only have the 690. Do you guys think its too big for a deep sand, whoop covered, tight course like Mesquite is generally known for?

DS android app?

Anyone tried this android app? http://dualsportmaps.com/

I guess the dev is an inmate... I'm going to try it. I'd love a rugged tablet for navigation!

I've used it a few times. It gives your device ability to track with and without a network signal. Worked pretty well. I like their website for making tracks also.

Anyone have recommendations for a place in SLC where I can get my DRZ400 suspension upgraded/tuned?

There's a guy in American Fork that I used for a KTM and there's a guy in SLC that I spoke with about doing some work. I'd have to look them up if you're not able to find them.

I have a room at the Eureka reserved for Friday and Sat night. A couple of guys I work with are racing... I may just pit them and then hang out with my family down there to keep the wife happy.

Appreciate the offer and would love to go with if you get down there another weekend this winter/spring. Too many other obligations on the 26-27th weekend.

Thanks - I have called around a bit and no one has been able to point me in the right direction.

Any info (closest to SLC the better) you could get me would be greatly appreciated

I used a guy in Bountiful and he did good job on my KTM. Not sure if he works on Suzuki but probably worth a call.

Hey guys,
I have a 2X Joe Rocket vented jacket and a couple of Olympia liners I don't need. If anyone needs them give a shout.
