Anyone bored in South Jordan today? I'm stuck hanging around while the bike gets serviced.

South Jordan is hardly a cure for boredom.

By now, most of us have signed our GPS units with blood I would think.

Day Ride in Moab Next Weekend (18th or 19th)

I am heading Moab next Friday / Saturday (Thurs a Possibility) with Family for School Break. Plan on bringing Bike in Trailer to get a Ride in Friday / Sat or Both if anyone is up for a ride.

Nothing to Gnarly, Kane Creek or Gemini Bridges were on my mind as I have not done these runs before. Open to Ideas too.

And then... someone stole the GPS off my bike.
Dangit, I thought I was safe here.
Next I will have to start taking the key out of my bike.

Loud pipes save lives?

I've got a buddy with LOUD akarapovic (sp?) pipes on his VStrom 1000 w/ the power commander etc, and I may pick up the bigger strom, but I'd need to quiet that thing down.

Does anyone know those pipes well? Can you get (most of) the power without the noise?

My wee-strom is on KSL for $3500 if you're interested.

The PO may have removed the inserts on the outlet end making it a bigger outlet & thus more noisy. You need to find replacements. Maybe an Akro dealer could help, who knows.

Hi Podinis, I'm doing a similar thing ... fam, dogs, trailer, bike ... Thu through Sun in the Moab area. Plans are a bit uncertain, but PM with your phone and maybe we can hookup.

Sunday?

Anyone riding this weekend? I'm going to try for a kitchen pass on Sunday if I can get all my farm work done.
