Now we know where tire repair central is located! Maybe I'll leave my compressor behind since space is so limited. Chris, you may as well bring your tire changing stand too.......

Thanks, Robbie for taking care of us non-seafood folk.

+1 on a small electric pump. I use a small slime pump that comes with SAE and cig lighter plugs. I run a fused SAE pigtail off the battery. It comes with a semi-hard case. Stores nicely in a back-pack. You'll thank yourself when you actually need to use it. Why make tire changes on the trail more difficult than they have to be.

Work smarter not harder!

When it comes to the sheer volume of flats one person can get on any particular outing Matt wears the crown. He has more flats in the times we ride together than any other person I know.

Which is why it is great to have him around when you get a flat, that thing gets changed in not time with his experience.

FWIW I ask because I tend to ride until dusk and I'm hopeful that I'll still get to eat if I get back @ ½ past sunset. (Sunset looks to be ~7:15)
anyone planning to be back late in the day, give your badge to some one to get your food. badge will be given when you check in upon arrival on your first day.

dinner ends when the food servers call it quits or food is gone.

Brian is still going to make it though. He will have to represent Colorado on his own...

Ride hard and take chances... FYYFF
Ok, so I'm going to need some help here. Norm was the planner, he was in charge of logistics, beer and bringing the bike wash girls. With Norm out I need someone to step up and bring plenty of beer and some cute gals for bike washing duty. I guess when I get lost I'll have no one to blame.....which way is Death Valley anyway


Seriously (I'm way behind in the thread) I'm trailering in so I'll have a little room.

I can borrow an ez-up if needed (no idea how to set it up), I'll through in a few camp chairs and if room allows a extra cooler for those real ADV riders who are riding in to use. Should I bring these items?

I have a SPOT tracker without the tracking feature, is there a phone number/e-mail I should add to my contacts list in the case I need to use the help or 911 button?

Sorry if this has been covered, my time online is very minimal.

Can hardly wait to see your area!!!

yes - he makes a good seat at a reasonable price. he can also change the foam/air ratio for lighter riders. I had him do that on my WRR - rider weight (160lbs). And he can make the seat lower as well and adding gel. Best to talk to him. Renazco alls makes an excellent seat but expect to pay about twice as much... for a cheapo UJM motorcycle i would say SC is good, if you want better than perhaps renazco. haven't personally used it but i see them alot on KTMs.

I went to Seat Concepts place about two years ago when he was building them out of his garage. I watched him build the seat and put it together - Really nice guy. He has since moved nearby in a space waaaay bigger...

Not sure what he currently has for covers, but i think the carbon fiber seat material looks the best on the sides and top. I originally ordered a two tone cover and after looking at it on the bike i changed my mind. he graciously went ahead and switched it out for me. Not sure who ended up with my original choice?

Tube choice

so far i got a kenda spare 21" standard for the front and rear. But after listening to all the (horror) stories about PSR and flats i am thinking i need an 18" rear inner tube?

? do i need to get a heavy duty innertube to be on the safe side. I don't weigh much and i usually (noob) ride with way too much air pressure?30psi front and rear would be my guess?

2 weeks!

I'm trucking, and will be bringing:
12x12 EZ-Up
2 tables, 1 big , 1 not so big
Extra camp chairs
A couple, three coolers, if anybody needs to store stuff, I mean, keep their beer cold.
Coleman camp stove
Tools

Is wood covered? or should I go get a (partial) bed load?

Does anybody in the west Ventura County area need gear hauled? I plan on leaving at 0'dark:30 Thursday morning, so I'd need your gear Wednesday night. More than willing to haul gear, or if you want to carpool, I got room. Think Crew Cab F350. And, it's a 4x4, so it's available for rescue duty, hopefully not needed.

If there's anything else I can do to help, give me a shout and send me a PM with what you need, or contact info.

Dave

Well, you don't need to worry about pinch flats.
