Ya.. the helmet mounted viewpoint was quite jumpy. Next time I'll keep it on the frame. Unfortunately I broke that mount in Colorado..

I'll know what to do better next time :)

I'll see if anyone wants to have a party and watch it. I'm thinking that only someone who has been standing on the pegs for hours would understand. jeff
I am in! .. I'd like to see some of the sections I wasn't able to ride. I like your idea about creating another clip with the sections I remember best. I think I will, and slow down the frame rate to about 2 to 3 a second.

Forest roads

From the US Forest Service on 10/2/13:

"We will open all of our seasonally opened gates today, in spite of the shutdown."

That's the word we got from the good folks at the USFS in response to hunter's questions about access.

YMMV.

Godspeed y'all.

Do you think they will go back to the original route for the S500 then?

Problem: government cannot figure out what to do with all those quarters we send them, so they close our forest roads.....

Max?

If any of you yahoos are heading up to Mortons this weekend, say hello to my old bike for me. Apparently the guy who bought it will be there. It's kinda funny ... while telling me that via email, he also wanted to know if I was interested in buying Max back! LOL! I figure if I sold it twice, that might be a sign from some deity that it's time to move on. But to be honest ... I did consider it. :-)

And in the continuing "I want to be just like Eddy" theme of my life, it looks like I might be picking up another bike. A 2011 KLR 650. Been missing that style of bike, and this one looks in great condition. Only thing that bothers me ... and I know it's BS ... is that the KLR forums consider a dual-sport bike with 20k on it to be extremely high mileage. This one is just there. (Dude uses it to commute daily, down in Hampton). Several have opined that IF you make it to 30k, it's better to just part the bike out and get a new one, cause the old one has zero value. I can't imagine that anyone here would look at a mere 20k miles as time to start digging the grave for their scoot.

I thought KLR owners were cheaper than that. LOL!

Stay tuned ... the farkle bug has bit me before I even buy the damn thing!

I've got 47K miles on the hacked KLR and another 37K on the solo KLR. Always a gamble buying used but I wouldn't let mileage scare me off. I'd use it as leverage to lower the price. Let me know if you buy it and we can send you your special decoder ring and complimentary tube of lock-tite.

My '02 is approaching 48K and I would have no hesitation about heading off cross country (again) on it. Besides "local" stuff, it has been to MT twice.

At my age it's beginning to get a little heavy when in the rough stuff, but it will cruise the roads all day long with no problem.

I'd always read that about the KLR, but I've never had any fasteners back out; never used the stuff on mine.

Cool. Bear squat road, here we come.

It does surprise me to hear the KLR forum folks would consider 20k "extremely high mileage".

I know there are a lot of GS "non-believers" here, but when I started my around the world ride in 2007, my GS had over 100,000 miles on the odometer. I didn't think twice about taking it on that trip. I KNEW it would make it.
