    Ride through the Mount Misery campgound and look for the flags as shown below.. USA, ThumperTalk, ADV..

    [​IMG]

    the photo above is taken from a campsite looking out towards the ring road. The flags will probably be easily visible from the dirt road but if not just look for bunches of dual sport bikes and that will be us..

    Since you are hauling your bike in you should probably park and unload in the parking area next to the field.. In the image below you can see a cleared field and the annotations read "go around field" to get to the camp sites but there is plenty of parking for trucks or even trucks with trailers to unload just to the right of the "go around field" arrow and at the intersection with DEP Trail Road.. Odds are there will be other trucks or vehicles with trailers there when you arrive..

    anything I missed?

    Hey Red, I got your order put together, even the mesh bag on the tool roll. Just don't question the weatherproof zipper on a mesh bag.:D

    I have not run this idea by the Trail Boss - but I am going to throw it out there anyway.........

    Swap Meet.

    i'm bringing some f650 parts, rfs parts, a few used tires and decent off road gear.I will trade for fistfulls of cash, craft beer, or other motorcycle paraphernalia.
    bring your junk - maybe someone else will want it.


    just think - if this catches on Rob can start to rent out booth space to fund his CNR beer budget.

    We're gonna need a bigger booth.


    I like the idea. I'll bring what ever I have to liquidate. I can also bring some paper tags to attach to your stuff, write your name and a price on it.

    Sounds like there's going to be a lot of people. Maybe you should give out name tags too.

    I have a half dozen spectra cords ready to go. One end is looped. They are 800# test I think.

    Yep, the O2 sensor is still there at the moment. I have already replaced the air filter cage with an unrestricted one, and the power-up kit with the plug to replace the O2 sensor and the resistor plug are on order. The engine runs very lean and I need to fix that.

    I also have Doubletake Mirrors on order. Need to figure out what to do about getting rid of the current license plate holder.

    Thanks for the information and anyone else with ideas let me hear 'em!

    I'm awful with names, and with some many orange bikes, I can't even use the bike as a mnemonic. I'll bring 'em for anyone who's game.

    One of the items I'm bringing is a rear under- fender plate holder / light assy. There's a slim chance that its exactly what you want, but the price will be cheap. It's in new condition though. You can be the judge.
