I hate flying in and out of SFO. I once got detoured to Oakland. We sat on the runway there for 2 hours. We all asked to get off the plane so we could walk to SFO but they would not allow it.

I will be late if I am able to go today.

Any of you Eastside pirates interested in meeting and riding out to Euro Moto? We could meet at CB's around 11 and head out. I'll check back in a few and see if there is any interest.

Based upon a bunch of emails exchanged, it looks like beers will be had at The Collective in Woodinville tomorrow night at 6. Hope everyone can make it!

Clif, spot device mounted to the bike only works if you fall AND stay with the bike.....Would hate to be hurt and not be able to reach the help button.

SPoT should be on the shoulder strap of your Camelback pack!!



Nice bike btw!

Always debate on where to put the SPOT, but perhaps on-person is the best.

Thanks on the bike. Works really great, massive range now, and Alex-smooth.

Def lookin good!

I used to keep my SPoT on a RAM mount. I like the idea cause I could easily adjust it's position to adjust for my route so that family could follow my tracks.

Two things changed my mind.
1. A low side in the middle of nowhere Canada. I landed 40ft downhill from my bike. Fortunately it was tall grass where I landed. 20ft an either direction and I would have been in large rocks or wrapped around a tree.

2. A DS rider outside of Eburg laid in a ditch for more than 24hrs after leaving the road. Never heard the cause of his departure from the pavement but he was separated from his bike and his SPoT. Fortunately he survived.

I'm now less concerned with tracks and far more concerned about Medivac should I need it!

I totally agree with you tom. I almost lost the 990 over a cliff and it was on the bike, 20-30 miles from the road. Spot on the bike is a HORRIBLE idea.
