  1. That XR seems to be missing a kickstarter.
  2. 950 SE is a pretty good off road bike. It always takes me a few miles to get used to it off road but when I get comfortable I can throw it around pretty good, but it's still a 100+ lbs heavier than my 500 and you need to respect that and the power. I really don't think any other bike over 700cc's is in the same league. CiD
  3. It packs pretty small, but everything adds up. For me it's always a trade off between comfort in camp and very tight gear on the bike. The weight of the cot is very lite and it's about 4" X 14" .
  4. I just received this today. I have wanted to sleep out under the stars on some of our trips but don't like the idea of a scorpion crawling into my mouth. Kug has one of the original cots like this but they sell for over $200.00 Saw this on Amazon for $40.00 delivered and thought I'd give it a try. It's pretty comfy laying on it even without a pad. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01M3544WF/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  5. We missed you, maybe see you at Crusin Grand Friday night. NCY sale fell through. Jim is staying around for now. CiD
  6. He just didn't want to pay me for AZ last year. The interest on the loan is going to break the bank.
  7. Looks like a 82 900ss with the cast wheels, but I'm no expert on them, but this is something I've always wanted in my collection. CiD
  8. That's actually Ken, he hadn't eaten in a few hours and he said he was down to skin and bones, maybe just bones. CiD
  9. Great report, I don't like riding much above 100. Last year at the end of the AZBDR when we got back to Flagstaff I rented a U-Haul when the temps were 106 and probably 115 in the lower deserts and I thought I'd die riding back to Havasu for 4 hours. Best $100 I spent. CiD
  10. Thanks for the report, I've been wanting to do the Giant Loop rides for awhile now. CiD
  11. Here are a few pics from New Mexico. There were a few water crossings. Here's Tracy following an overflowing river close to the Colorado border. I'm pretty sure this was the 1st time any of us ever had a Llama walk through our camp. These were the only crashes we had on the whole trip. 1st my bike fell over one night in camp. Then Tracy fell over in camp and this is Van's bike after it fell over in camp. No flats, mechanical issues or crashes in 1600 miles on the trial. We saw Elk, deer, antelope, turkeys, bears, llamas and a few other creatures on the trail, and some pretty interesting people in some of the small towns including a guy in red underwear at a Subway shop that wanted to join us on our ride. This is called Teakettle rock. Always find a Kug sticker wherever we go. The boys Tracy, Ken and Van taking a break. Kug cutting some fresh tracks in the White Sands National Monument. Nice views on the northern half of the ride. Like most BDR's this one had it's good parts and some pretty boring parts. Getting back to the start was a bit of a grind on the small bikes, but it's all good. Already planning our next trip CiD
  12. I act like I'm 14 Not sure if that's still a good thing but what the heck, I'm having a good time
  13. I saw this stove yesterday. I already have 2 JetBoils or I'd order one of these. $70 cheaper than most jetboils. https://www.monoprice.com/product?c_id=124&cp_id=12404&cs_id=1240404&p_id=15641&seq=1&format=2
  14. Guy races motorcycles at the highest level and doesn't get hurt. Out training on a bicycle and gets hit by a car. Hope he recovers. http://www.beinsports.com/us/worldsbk/news/nicky-hayden-in-critical-condition-after-bein/54273 CiD
