Nice. Saw a few bikes out yesterday, but not as many as normal. Glad to have a lunch recommendation, settled for a shirty gas station subway sandwich in Duchesne.

Good thing I rode that on Sunday as now there is probably 8-12" of snow on that pass.

Yo!
Who has a tire changing / balancing set up that I could use to do a set of tires on my 990? I'd just swap them using tire irons, but I want to make sure they're balanced for um....highway speeds.....

I'll let Walrus buy you a beer for the use of the equipment....

KTM RFS toolkit

So what's in a stock toolkit that comes with a KTM RFS (520 exc)? I think I've got almost as much bs as Harcus and I want to pair it down!

I always use DynaBeads. It is much easier than trying to balance with wheel weights, and the front tire has less cupping.

Is that kind of like "teabagging"??

My 950's been left stock, and so has the 225. Sure, I could probably get a little bit more out of em, but they really are not finicky.
Not the answer's you were look'n for, I know. Welcome to Utah.

I don't dial in my YZ for all conditions, but I usually just use the following for pretty much working from desert to mountains.

P: 45
M: 172
Stock Needle second from top.

Here's a spreadsheet for the YZ

You can switch back to the "classic" version.

I hate the new version too. I don't use the send to garmin feature...

You may be aware of this but it is a good summary "How to" ...

The option to communicate with a Garmin GPS is gone from all versions of Google Maps. I have done a Google Plus search and it seems to be a major complaint that Google has not addressed. I'm concerned that all my saved routes will disappear from the classic version without any notice. Google is sucking big time

Gas near Ibadan

Anybody been across the pony express route in the last few months? Is there gas near ibapah? I understand the trading post used to carry gas but no longer does but I found a post saying there was somewhere else about 5 miles away.

I'm sitting in Elko right now and wondering if I can make it. I've got a KLR with me and we can bail and head north to wendover if we have to but would prefer an easterly route back over to Vernon.

I rode it last fall and when I got to Ibapah there was no one there to get the gas from. I would ride to Ibapah from Ely and try to find gas... if not roll north to Wendover - got to at least try it!
