    Not via the computer but I'm sure we can figure it out. I'd suggest donwloading a cheat sheet for programming it and bringing it with you.

    Will be drinking some cold beer around the fire Weds night (washed down with s'mores) if anyone wants to stop by site # 37.

    not sure of the instagram stuff, but bringing the R15 and the cube. probably should bring the US10 as a tail bag. Just ordered the US5 for the WRR to stash innertubes and the toolbag for the Trumpet800XC

    Two steps forward, one step back.

    Got my heli-coils, Autozone had a kit with three, just how many I needed. I got the tail box project done, yay I'll have a place for lunch!

    When I rode to work this morning I was feeling a bit of a wobble, I also noticed the front brake not acting right, obviously the rotor on my trail wheels is quite warped (when braking there's a spot that power is reduced, poor man's ABS!). Took the wheel off tonight to swap the warped rotor with the good one off my street wheel but found that the previous owner of said wheels put them on with a buttload of torque. Messed up two bolt heads before I gave up (damn allen heads) and put my D607 street wheel back on, now I look all funny with a knobby on the rear and smoothie on front.

    I'm sure teh warped rotor will be just fine for the event, I just don't want to commute on it. I'll fix the bolts at a later date (i.e. the next last possible second).

    Next up is oil change and build a skidplate. Oh and buy beer / pack camping supplies.

    Hey Little Bike,

    You taking the J Lewis class on Sat-Sun as well? If so, I'll see you there! Thinking of heading over to PSR on Monday. Will try to get spot #14C or look for a green golite TP tent.

    I have been busy dehydrating food. Finished the following:

    - 1/2 lb of beef jerky
    - baggy of dried mangos
    - dried bannans (tastes good)
    - sweet potatoes (not so good - i am reworking that one)
    - apples (good - ate them all - need to do another batch)
    - Fruit rolls (leathers) (making the yogurt first - fiddling with the fermentation time)

    Do we need to have a spark arrestor installed on the bike? What if the bike is licensed DS.

    Yes....is the best answer as it relates to our group and not stirring the pot..

    The official answer is below:


    Vehicles
    Vehicles must be street legal. Vehicles with off-the-highway registration (California green-sticker) cannot be operated anywhere within the national park. All vehicles must have valid license plates and highway registration including two-wheel-drive and four-wheel drive vehicles, motorcycles, all-terrain vehicles, dune buggies, trail bikes, mini-bikes and every other mechanically-driven means of transportation.
