    I use an app called OsmAnd, and there are other apps out there for cheap, my son tells me I should try an app called Locus,. Using WiFi I download entire states detail maps into memory (It will hold all of North America) then I have no need to be online or have cell towers. Topo maps are available but I don't use them.

    Did a bunch of the New Mexico BRD in May and could see every little goat trail in wilderness.

    Hey Bill, I also have a Nomu S10 per the recommendations from the GPS threads.

    I have both OsmAnd and Locus. I don't like Locus at all. I use the Osmand app and much prefer it. That S10 is an awesome solution to a standalone GPS.

    "Backcountry Navigator" has an app with topos where you download specific "tiles". I don't use it as I just ride the back dirt roads. OsmAnd, Locus and Backcountry all have free apps available.

    Hi all. Just returned from a spin over to Noel, Mo.
    if anyone is heading over that way, going out highway 20 BEWARE!!!!! From Spavinaw all the way to Southwest city there is loose gravel in nearly every turn, much more than you would expect, and to keep you on your toes there are softball sized flint rocks scattered randomly along the road.
    Hopefully it's mostly displaced from the road by normal traffic before the week end...
    Anyway, ride safe and enjoy, it's a beautiful ride.

    I'm looking for a radiator and the shrouds for a 1st gen klr. Any of you local okies have some extras you'd part with?

    I do not. I have, however, patched a KLR radiator with JB weld. :dunno

    I'll double check on the shrouds when I get home. IMS tank is the way to fix this problem :deal

    If only JB weld fixed bends. Someone had to have hit a tree with this one.
    I like the IMS tanks myself, but my dad just wants to replace the shroud and go. This one's his.
    If you got 'em, let me know, I might like to buy them.

    State rangers? I'm my opinion they are about the worst group of enforcement. Bad experiences at roman nose and I think robbers cave.

    Saw a dude today in Salina around 9:30am riding west on a KTM SuperMoto (I think). You probably had a ton of fun if you came from Spavinaw or Kenwood...
