    I am not doing DSM on iOs at the moment. I am actually working on something completely different. It is the coolest, high tech iOS & Android fuse block you've ever seen. Check it out. http://kck.st/17XjTrE

    Very nice, I was born and raised in Whitesburg. We do several DS trips a year in the area and will give this a go.

    Thanks for your hard work Jeff. I plan on riding mid October and want to also try and look up the covered bridges in the area while I'm there. I think you posted bridge waypoints, so this sounds like a fun trip. Hoping to have a buddy ride along on a new Husky 650 so I am not sure but I think I'll probably ride my WRR. Do you think the WRR will be enough for the difficult sections? If weather permits I would like to do them - won't have knobby - will have to run a trials tire and try not to kill it on the road. Thanks again

    The WRR is capable of doing the hard sections if you are. These sections can be very difficult in spots. I highly recommend that you have lots of experience on very technical single track before attempting these sections. Here are some examples of the hard sections...

    You did an awesome job on the tracks. Nice and clean and simple. So many people post crap in little pieces with over laps and skips. You even cut it up for small 500 point GPSs. Great job, I know it took time and effort to do this!
    Thank you!!!!! :deal I will be riding your track ASAP.

    It's not the bike, it's the rider. A very good rider would have little problem getting a WRR up that rock face.

    Thanks! My goal was to make it as easy as possible even for GPS noobs.
    I've actually been watching your thread and plan to ride that route possibly next year. It looks like a blast!!! :clap

    It will be a annual non-event haha. But if you come to ride it at another time I can give you the special ride! I know a lot more than I give out. We can ride several more days in the area. All I do now is wear out m/c tires, so I'm available to ride unless I riding somewhere else.

    Can an average rider on a Vstrom do the main loop okay?

    You shouldn't have much trouble but remember that you will need aggressive tires! There is dirt, rocks, creeks and small hills on this main loop.

    Thanks for sharing Jeff, just the kind of riding i'm looking for. It's all good, but your A loop looks great.

    Thanks for Posting this up Jeff. Kenny Dunn had told me you finished the loop and sent me this link. I lost the gps file you has shared, with a hard drive failure. I can't wait to ride this...

    Dan

    p.s. Really appreciate the effort it took to put this together Jeff!!!

    Got to try in on my Rally Alp,

    It needs some work tho.

    [​IMG]


    The head bearings need replaced.
    The rear wheel bearings need replaced.
    Spokes rusted solid---can't tighten them.
    2 of the 4 spark plugs are fouled and incrusted with oil.
    Rear sprocket bolts rusted solid---I'll have to cut them out.
    I can't turn the handlebars to the left---the badly routed clutch cable hits some bare wires on the ignition switch and blows a fuse.
    The rear caliper is mounted crooked and has worn the pads very crooked.
    The carbs are full of rusty water.
    Both carb diaphrams are torn.
    The front fender rubs the crash guard badly.
    The choke pistons on the carbs are rusted solid and stuck in their bores---so no choke.
    The throttle cables are pretty rusty and sticky.
    Handguards need re-worked.
    Oil disappears faster than you can pour it in.
    The clutch slips really bad.
    Oh---and then there's the thing about only one piston is connected to the crankshaft.

    Some JB weld and WD40 and it will be good to go :deal
    Meanwhile---off to Baja on my WR.

    Finally getting some time to take a closer look at this. Awesome. I exported 'hard5' and opened it in Google Earth. That really gives you a good idea what's going on. Come on spring!
