Hey Guys!

Its been a while- sorry about that.
Yeah- As of now I'm planning to be at the hot springs from Thursday Mid day thru Saturday mid day, then return to PSR fro the night, baring anyone not needing any rescues with my truck.

I will be selling gas out there and possibly cold refreshing beverages.
prices- I don't know yet. probably $6-8/ a gallon of 87 octane.
$1 bottle water,

cold beers? $2-3 12 oz cans.

I will have my HAM radio( F6) too- any other HAM radio geeks out there???

I will know by March 20th if I'm going FOR SURE!

cheers,

Pablo

Pablo,

I would like to hook up with you on Friday am before you head out of camp. Thursday I promised to organize the dinner, so I will need to be in camp early. I will make sure to save you some grub.

If you are going to explore the dirt routes you need knobby tires. TKC's are one of the top choices for the F8. The Heideneau K60 is also popular, but the front is marginal at best so you're still better off with a TKC for the front if you put a K60 on the back.Or any other popular dualsport front knobby, such as D606, T63, Karoo2, Scorpion Rally, d908, K777, and etc..

If I was taking my Tiger for some dirt road routes I would keep the shinko 705 knock-off I use (Fullbore USA M40) on the back, and install a knobby front for that trip.

If you want some mileage and want something to keep on for more and upcoming rides, probably would just have TKC's installed.
.....
Thanks for the tips on the tires. There certainly was a good amount of ideas on tire setup choices in these threads and I now have a set of TKC 80's on the way.

Hey Joel,

I'll have fuel and beers!

I might be able to get my hands on a couple of these:
http://www.mfjenterprises.com/Produc...ductid=MFJ-662

If I do, I'll place one atop Hunter mnt, then we'll have communication from the Hot Springs to PSR 24/7.

CONGRATS on getting licensed!!
I KNOW you'll pass!
as far as freqs- I havent decided. probably 2 meter and or 440.
What HT are you thinking about picking up?

cheers,
Pablo

intersted in the hot springs ride.

I am interested in riding to the hot sprins, not signed up for any rides yet. I read in a post inquiring about my bike and skill level.
WR250R. scotts stablizer, alum skid plate, barkbusters. 3.1 gallon safari tank- should be good for 150 miles unless i have problems up the hill. Dunlop GeoMax 71 rear, Michellin T63 front (replacing with geomax 71)

intermediate on easy stuff. Daily ride tiger800xc. Technical and rocky climbs more like a beginner. I do not touch the ground. It ends up looking like a crossfit session. I try, but if i loose at a slow speed or i am getting bounced around, the bike ends up falling or ontop of me.

Just got the suspension rebuilt so things should be better.

i have been lookiing and finally found an experienced rider and veteran of dv who can lead a ride on friday, or possibly saturday. this is going to be a full day of riding @ 150 miles round trip. he's an advanced rider willing to ride slow and herd the cats. sorry, for using advanced and slow in the same sentence....

we want to know how many will be interested to sign IN. this may be the only opportunity to do this ride for this event.

post up if you're interested.

Getting to the warm springs and back out through South Pass should not be a problem.
