  1. Teen Motorcycle Permit

    It would be hard to find a better teacher than you. Your son is very lucky. I have many bikes in my garage and my son could use one for transportation but even though he is a good off road rider he has never ridden on the street and I won’t give him one. CiD
  2. Just bought one of these to add to my kit. Steep and cheap has them available for under $10. https://www.adventuremedicalkits.com/survive-outdoors-longer-emergency-bivvy.html https://www.steepandcheap.com/adventure-medical-heatsheets-emergency-bivvy?skid=AMK0135-OR-ONESIZ&ti=U2VhcmNoIFJlc3VsdHM6Qml2dnk6MToxOkJpdnZ5 Here is a review. Review on February 24, 2013 Helped Save A Life Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer Not many people are likely to come on here and review a product that is meant to keep someone alive in an unlikely situation. Especially not after having used it. A friend broke his femur while backcountry skiing, and 2 of the 3 partners had these emergency bivies in our bags. Combined with down jackets, goggles, face masks, beanies, food, water,dry layers, and proper care, I believe that these $17 items helped to keep my friend alive until we were able to transport him to the hospital. They are small and light and I've never backcountry skied or alpine climbed WITHOUT having one in my bag. On the flipside, they are quite slim and with an immobile leg, it caused too much pain to fit over the body. We ended up slipping one over the patient (albeit with a LOT of pain), and using our teeth to cut the other one in half, to be used as a blanket and tucked in around the patient and under his butt. It tore in a straight line. CiD
  3. I can’t make it Sunday. Too much pressure with people watching me.🤪
  4. Bring warm clothes, layers
  5. Anyone going on the ride that wants to get an FMM should fill on e out before reaching the border. Then it will just need the stamp and will expedite the process for everyone. https://www.inm.gob.mx/fmme/publico/en/solicitud.html CiD
  6. New bike - ALTA EXR

    I have to disagree a little. Sometimes it’s a natural progression of a topic and it might wander a little. If all everyone said was nice bike I would have been done with thread after 2 or 3 post. Now I find it interesting. Just my opinion CiD
  7. Ride tracker

    My buddy Cliff posted this from his ride today. Really cool app I need to try. https://www.relive.cc/view/1997153357 CiD
  8. New bike - ALTA EXR

    Welcome to the site. Cool bike, what is the range?
  9. I should have stated that I was not the photographer. Just like the pic of Rigger and his bike and dog on the beach in Baja.
  10. I’ve read on another forum that they are checking 100% of bikes for registration coming across the border in Tecate. Not sure how accurate that is but make sure you have your paperwork on your bike. I’ll be getting my FMM card along with Bowers Friday morning. Msy not be needed but it’s free and why take a chance.

  11. Changing a tire

    I have a tire stand in my garage and I can usually put a new tire on in less than 30 minutes from putting bike on lift to getting it off. Good tire irons are a big help. I have 4 of these for in the shop. I don’t carry big ones like this on the trail but I’ve changed enough that I don’t need to practice in my garage. Core Tools CT113 15" Curved Tire Iron https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00NIKMWZU/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_tai_aliaCbX14G1QZ proper technique is also very important. Watch a few videos on YouTube. Always put new tire out in the sun to get warm. If no sun I’ll use a heat gun sometime to warm the new tire. CiD
  12. Speaking of flow I just finished the shower.
