    Yep Steezeman, we are definitely gonna have to go riding soon. And a bottle of some fine CrownRoyal whiskey at a nice camp fire would make for a great ending. :freaky

    CrozB- Could you post the link to that Ram mount/case for the Samsung Galaxy S4 you were talking about.

    I can make you a plate like the one I have. I just need to know how to get it to you.

    Loren- I could pick it up from you at your house or work. Or you could come over and show off those master skills. Give me a call if you want 623-330-0417

    Here is the link for the S4.

    They are selling it, but they don't have pictures that are S4 specific. However they have pictures for their S3
    [​IMG]
    and their iPhone version. That should give you a pretty good idea of what it looks like.

    GoAZ says they have them for the iPhone in the KTM building. Not sure if they stock the S4 or if you have to order.

    There are less protective version of a phone holder on the market, but with the number of pieces flying off of your bike, I am not sure I would go with anything less :lol3

    With the government shutdown, is this the time to adventure without anyone on the roads in national parks? Let's ride into the Grand Canyon.

    I think he meant the park, not the canyon. The Indians haven't shut down!

    I meant (not seriously) riding into the Grand Canyon. Seriously though, are there any cool parks around here where we could be lawless? Like going to Yosemite and camping wherever you want and without cost.

    I'd be in for something like that. But wouldn't want to organize it on a public forum.

    I just found a interesting way of preventing flats. Tireballs.com
    Its about $200 per tire though.

    I am looking at Reno Pass or Mount Ord Saturday depending on what is open. I am flexible on start and ride time. Let me know if you are interested.
    Thx

    530 XCW or KLR? I have a 450X and a F800GS and was thinking about taking the X to Florence and staging off of Cottonwood Canyon Rd and the Gas line about 8 AM. Reno Pass looks to be closed according to riderplanet.com. I have never been to Mount Ord - is it doable on a GS?

    I was planning on the 530XCW for Reno Pass or Mt Ord. I have not been on either but know someone who took a GS up it and only dropped it once. I am in North Phx so that is why I was looking at rides to the North. I could come South if I can get everything together in time. Please be aware I am not fast. I understand Reno Pass can be accessed from Punkin Center but with the forest service closed I do not know what options there are.

    OK - I will probably stick to my original plan as I want to try out some new RX goggles I got and ride off road only on the X. I will be cruising the pipeline road, trails and may head into box canyon. You are welcome to join.

    Tire balls are a mixed blessing! I pit for Shannon Cambells Monster Energy team racing Ultra 4 and Desert racing class I. They are a pain in the @$$ to install and even worse to take out to change tires. On the other hand he can run 100mph for 15 to 20 miles and make it to the next pit with a 4" gash in his sidewall. If you are at a higher level of competition they are worth there weight in gold. I don't currently run them in my 1900 race car primarily because of cost. I know they came from the motorcycle market but I'm not sure if you need the air manifold that's required to run them in bigger tires.

    What chain and sprockets are recommended for a DR650SE?

    :D

    I do a lot of highway speeds during my commute.

    :norton

    But also like to be able to climb the hills of Bulldog Canyon!
