Been there on the old Beast. I've never been so happy to see an ATV come along
to give me a yank out. Half hour later I hit a cow.

Pluric, can't open your message about posting picts on here.Site says "pop up blocker". I'm lost. I know NOTHING about this hi tekkie stuff. On-off knobs is as far as I ever got(& I pull them off sometimes).Am a luddite(except when it comes to Yamaha--I AM trying figure out this Tenere traction control thingie. Had it on in mud--something WORKS GREAT,whatever it is) A riding & ski pal is an IBM'er. I'll get him to show me. Snow on level ground kinda suks. On steeps you can always backup or go forward,or just drag it. I somehow sense you have a LOTTA fun doing this stuff. Keep up the good works.

Here is a copy of the PM you can't open.

Hello Roarin,

Go to www.tinypic.com

The page that comes up should have a "Upload photos and Video"
then a browse button. Hit the browse button and go to your
stored photos. Double click on the photo you want to upload.

The browse box should then have information in it.

Click the "Upload now"

It will then go to a security box. Type what ever is written where it says
"Your answer" and then the "Upload now" box.

The next page will say "Share this image" Click on the IMG code for
Forums and Message boards. That will turn black. While it is black click
on it and copy the code.

Go back to where ever you wanted the photo posted and hit the paste option.

It may sound a little complicated.It's not. After a couple tries you will be the new
ADV photo king!


Rick

Here Saso.

Pluric, how did you get that Yamaha "tall" windscreen to work with the Arai XD? I installed the same screen last week and now I have more wind in my face and it beats against the visor big time. I think now I have to go back to the stock screen. Any suggestions you have let me know? Thanks...

It doesn't work. I had not tried the combo before the ride. You're right it buffets the visor
and makes it hard to read signs or focus on things. Off road is wasn't so bad because
the speeds were lower. If I plan to do a lot of slab a visor less helmet will be used.

The TC1 setting is for riding with your buddies and not throwing rocks on them, TC2 lets it throw some and hang the rear out but controlled. I really like the UBS ABS tho, just using the front brake in off road bashing, kind of like the TC1 setting in reverse.

Really effective sistem, woundn't trade it for anything else. Even if it scared the Sh.t out of me the first time I used it on th deep loose gravel/rocky trails of Poios, Portugal.

But trust me, when someone gets this bike, one should head to a gravel road, crack the throttle and then squeeze the front brake. Scary at first, but stupidly effective

Slither Hollow

One segment along every loop simply speaks to you…well on this day or any other, that’d be Slither Hollow. Phenomenal sight lines this time of year allow for wicking it up a bit. My mistress Alegany gives the Medicine everybody needs.
