  1. No problem, just remember on a past thread that that subject was going to be addressed. Thanks!
  2. No problem, and thank you very much for all the hard work. I'm looking forward to seeing the new site and the new feel it is going to have. Will there be a new feature for liking somebody's Post?
  3. PMB will be responsible, he's just kidding. People leave their horse trailers there all the time. Be a long way home by horse if towed. Got the bike loaded and gear ready for tomorrow. Have a family XMAS party today in Santee till eight tonight, so I only want to have to get in to my riding gear in the morning, and get on the road...especially since PMB will be Johnny-on-the-spot by arriving at the staging area by 4am.
  4. Flat Tire - Search and Repair

    He was changing a front tire! Using grease on the beads makes any tire change look like it's a wimpy tire being installed. It's easy! Just did the front and back on mine in 40 minutes. The only point that is important in this video (for me) is that applying talcum powder to a tire sucks as a deterrent for pinch flats. Grease works. You may have more of a challenge during tire changes Bags due to you are running two rim-locks both front and back.

    Slickery is good...
  6. This 5 minute video has everything to do with Sunday's ride; please consider giving it a look.
  7. Flat Tire - Search and Repair

    This short video by world renowned rider Adam Riemann demonstrates the reason that I use rubber grease (heavy silicon grease) on tubes to avoid pinch-flats!
  8. I myself would not attempt riding a 690 through the Squeeze (a rock pile) or down HAH. I know many big bike riders can, just not me...Paul has a nice big bike that he has experience with and will need to help in this situation if necessary. I will sip my water and cheer him on though.
  9. Pauls right, if there is a section of the trail that someone absolutely does not want to tackle... one of us will be glad to get your bike to a point of comfort for you. Having said this... "anyone thinking of attending" this Sunday, please do a "gut-check" whether this is the ride for you. Someone that has little to no dirt experience... this is not the ride for you. It will be challenging. Someone wondering if the Desert Dash event (how this thread originally started) being held in February 2019 is something you would like to enter, and are willing to become a member of the AMA to ride in the Desert Dash, have some basic confidence in their riding abilities off-road... than by all means sling a leg over your bike and lets have a nice, easygoing, fun, and instructional practice ride traveling much of the trail that the Dash will cover.
  10. Hey Bagster, you have 48 hours to find that pesky thorn! Hint Hint...
  11. Good Danmule! I resonate with the back-half of your name! The Mule Society is gaining strength in numbers.
  12. I noted Borrego Springs rain total at .68 in.. Depends where the rain gauge is located for sure. My pool has increased by 1.5 in. but I'm close to the mountain near Palm Canyon. .

    Welcome Steve!
  14. Probably 80% dirt. Most of those attending this ride do it on the glorious 500 exc. Hope you make this one; it's going to be a fine time had by all.
