    Thats nice to know. I have never done much with the GPS and can see myself messing it up pretty fast.

    I still have wondered why a gym. I like to put my calories to use.

    Ah, youth. I guess you can do it all Rocky-in-Russia style and chop down trees, split wood, lift rocks...
    Gyms are great to focus on specific muscle groups, like the 6 pack abs that ?? has. OK, none of us.
    The gym also lets us old farts rehab specific ailments, which seem to increase exponentially. Also, if I am paying for something, I tend to use it and not waste my money. Financial self-motivation.

    ...and of course there's...

    Not that TR 8. I have been using the VE 33's on the fronts of both the 450 and the 690 and they've been great tires.

    Aren't the VE33's called the "Vulcanduro"?

    If so, that's the tire that gave me the best service when I was doing guided trail rides back when my ol' XR250R was nearly new. Seeing as I had to keep a record (for taxes/etc) of expenses, I went ahead and tracked how many miles per front/rear tires, chains, sprockets, oil changes, etc, etc. Amazing how much it costs to ride your scoot often and a bunch of miles. Anyway, the Vulcanduro was the best for long wear... had the stats to prove it. :D

    OK i have 49 states downloaded to the GPS. It will show my speed so that will work for a speedo on the bike as well i hope. Got a mount on order to hold it on the bike.

    I also orderd the bigger chip for the GPS. It all fit on the GPS is there any reason to use the chip?

    Nice! :clap

    Like the look of that tire. How does the 690 compare to the 450?
