Gates? Hey, GIS, I have 12 days open, not ten.........so I was thinking.......
Well since we're comparing fixes my XR needed a new piston, rings, push rod, valves, sleeve(was cracked, explains the white smoke I've been blowing all over and where all the oil went), chain, chain sliders(maybe)... it'll be almost half the price of the bike after I ripped off that kid.

It's also getting a high output stator and being converted to DC (my blinkers will right for once!). Just in time for the end of skiing season!

I feel your pain. I feel all your pains.

Mine keeps needing gas. When will it end?

He might as well throw on a new set of points and a condenser while it's apart.

...by the way... a road book(?) aint gonna cut it if you don't know where you're goin' like our next tour !!! gpx is good, but be sure to have enough gas to compensate for plans interrupted by gates!

(Frog, I want to learn how that sh!t works, but SLC to Eureka is a common dirt date w/ my Grrrrl, Eureka Burgers are Great!.... turn left at the big tree, turn right at the sage brush. I love the concept. A1 has shocks on some of his bikes that are equivalent to the nav tech! ) I'll spring for the cheap road book hardware just so i can be in on the fun! but...

crap! I'm a boy scout. if you want orienting the lets race west of the oquirrh's then thread between the tintic and sheeprock range to the black mtns, and then on to little sahara for a meet up, and then on to the deep west dez... get your compasses ready! it's old skool time. (i'll still carry my gps.)

rant off.
Gpx is great but there really isn't any navigation. Just turn when you are told to by the arrow or voice.

It will be the areas that I mention because I know them well and trust me there are trails you have never seen. I'm happy to throw in the little Sahara section so you can use your compass and old skool boy scout skills.

If you guys would rather just have a gpx to follow I'm sure there are plenty floating around, I'm not going to bother putting that together.

I'm all about lazy nav/gpx! I just don't think my attention span would allow for anything less. I though about hooking up my gps to electrocute my nutz if i miss a turn, since i'm always day dreaming and looking around at the pretty trees. You do owe electrical wizardry for XR rental, but i don't think the nut job is high on my list.

It sounds like there's a lot of interest in the road book, so i don't mean to rain on your parade. I was just saying i'd get lost without my regular tools.

following a gps is lazy, but generally i aint followin but making the tracks. which involve's roughing out a route at 250k topo, then refining at 100k topo, then refining at 24k topo, then checking on google earth, then marking all intersections for 5 miles in every direction of my planned route. If i hit a gate, i can reference my poster sized map and see that i need intersections 14, 34, then 82 to bypass the obstacle and get back on track. It makes for easy on the fly re-routing, but it's not perfect. I'm waiting for the contact lenses that are directly wired to the google, and for google to support deep dez exploration.

I'm going to follow someone that's following the road book! The last time i tried to chase Frog through CC i found myself taking a breather under a tree till he and Fano decided A1 and I might die in the dez! (we wouldn't a died... but it's nice to part ways on purpose instead of loose someone!)
