  4. Thinking it would be nice to do a ride in the morning as part of the Celebration of Arnie. I am open to suggestions. I feel it should not be that technical as many will be on bigger bikes and we do have to make it to the Fair Grounds later.
  5. Maybe an afternoon ride after the celebration? Any good local camping spots for a quick overnight/ campfire ride?
  6. I am saddened to pass this along. Afry - Arnie passed away last night at the Flat track race. He was doing something he loved. Apparently suffered a heart attack at the track. He will be greatly missed by family, friends and this site. My condolences go out to his family and many friends he had. RIP Arnie! https://www.facebook.com/Arniefry
  7. I will be there. Riding in.
  8. until

We have a bunch of seats together all within the first 4 rows at the left field wall. Supporting members $25 (first priority) Non supporting members $30 I will close the offer a week before the game.
  10. Good night. Lots of action but none of us caught a homerun ball. Thanks to Crawdaddy& wife as well as Unclechamp & friend for coming out to the game.
  11. Sorry to see you go Seth. Nice knowing you. Lots of people migrating to Idaho. I hope you stay connected to SDAR.
  12. Monthly "Communicator Gateway" Workshop Date: Saturday, August 12, 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. Location: Scripps La Jolla Hospital Campus in San Diego (Schaetzel Center Building, next to the main hospital building, ground floor, in the Noble Room) Parking: Park in underground parking or in the above-ground parking structure. (At the workshop, please ask for the parking validation procedure.) Map: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Scripps+Memorial+Hospital+La+Jolla (To help you locate the Workshop location on the hospital campus, attached to this email is a photo with the building marked. When you enter the building, look for people wearing yellow shirts.) ATTENTION people of all ages interested in Ham Radio (licensed, not licensed, or out of practice)! San Diego Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) will conduct another FREE monthly workshop to help participants "Get On The Air" (GOTA). Everyone is welcome regardless of club or organization affiliation! This two-hour workshop is intended for anyone getting started (or struggling) with a handheld "HT" radio. If you attended in the past, you are welcome to return for another workshop to hone your skills. If you have an earlier edition of the free workbook, please bring it with you to this workshop. The workshop starts with basics, such as how to turn on the radio, and then progresses to operating in simplex and repeater mode. This is a hands-on workshop in small groups led by Elmers (instructors), not a lecture. Participants receive a free workbook to guide their progress. What to bring: 1. A handheld radio, if you have one or can borrow one. Elmers will have a few loaners available. We recommend a 2m/70cm (VHF/UHF) handheld transceiver (HT). 2. The operating manual for your radio. Please bring the entire manual - either paper copy or on a tablet. 3. A pen, and a few paper clips or stickies to tab pages in your operating manual during the workshop. 4. If your HT is the Baofeng UV-5R (or other model Baofeng), please visit the web site www.miklor.com, print, and then bring to class copies of the documents: "On the Fly Keyboard Programming," "Keypad Layout and Functions," and "Reference and FAQ Page." These documents are much better than the manual that comes with the radio. This workshop follows the regularly-scheduled ARES meeting. If you plan to attend the workshop, please RSVP to k6rjf.rob@gmail.com so we know how many study guides to produce, or if you have a specific interest or question. When you RSVP, please tell us which radio you will bring, and please include your call sign (if you have a call sign). The most common radios (HTs) brought to this workshop are: Yaesu FT-60 and Baofeng UV-5R. Occasionally students bring Yaesu FT-65, Yaesu FT-1, Yaesu FT-2, Wouxun, Kenwood, and Baofeng models other than the UV-5R. We teach each model radio in a different group. Thank you. . . . Rob K6RJF Assistant Section Manager (Training) P.S. If you changed your call sign or email address, please send updated contact info to k6rjf.rob@gmail.com.
  13. I have some size 8's as well.
  14. I dont have "ladies" boots, but I am sure I have something close to that size in the gear boxes. I will check and see what I have.
  15. We are not one of the states, but it may happen. PSA: Bikers Can Legally Run Red Lights In These States 4.7k SHARES ShareTweet As many as 15 states in the country now have enacted laws that allow motorcyclists to run red lights. What this means is that motorcyclists in these states can now cross an intersection even when the light is red, and not be charged with anything. Currently, Arkansas, Idaho, Illinois, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and Wisconsin have such laws. 4 years ago, Nebraska had also proposed a similar bill, but it hasn’t been enacted yet. The status is currently, “indefinitely postponed”. It may sound bizarre to many readers how motorcyclists can be given such an exception, especially those not outside the US. However, there’s good reason for that. Most traffic lights in these states only go green for a particular lane only when a vehicle on it has been waiting to cross an intersection. The system uses metal sensors to detect if a vehicle is waiting. However, these sensors are not always very sensitive. As a result, vehicles like motorcycles and bicycles are often not able to trigger these sensors due to the low volume of metal they have. Consequently, the riders are left with rather impractical options to cross such an intersection. Either they get off their vehicle and trip the pedestrian crosswalk button, or ask for cars to squeeze through their lane, or simply run the light. These states recognized this plight of the riders, and officially made it legal to run such lights. However, most of these states have guidelines in place to prevent misuse. The riders are required to come to a complete stop at such lights, and then proceed into the intersection only when there’s no incoming traffic or pedestrians. Consequently, the liability in case of an accident at the intersection while a rider is running a red light has been shifted to the rider. Here are the details about it:
  16. I know there is a welder by my shop in San Marcos. I will try to go by this weekend and if he is not there, I will try and get the name of his business. If those attempts fail I will go by Monday during business hours. He showed me some of his welding in the past and it was nice.
  17. So this is next week. I need to know all who are in. In so far is only Crawdaddy - 2 Unclechamp -2
  18. DSM8 has graciously offered to host a bike tech day at his house in Escondido on Sat July 22. This is an event so that people can do maintenance on their bikes with the help and direction of their peers who are more experienced or for those who have just been procrastinating and looking for a reason to do something. Also a good excuse to meet other members and socialize! Waste oil can be collected and held on site. Please bring the tools and parts needed to work on your project. We will have a BBQ going with non- alcoholic beverages provided. If you wish to bring something to share at the lunch that would be great. DSM8 did not specify a time so I will let him chime in on what would work for him. Please chime in if you are coming and if you will be bringing something. The location would be 925 Chardonney Way, Escondido 92029
  19. Thanks for all the interest. I am waiting to hear back on the quantity/ pricing breakdown. I will order as soon as I know.
  20. Thank you Uncle Champ. I hope you did not get to injured. When you say the steering folded up, does that mean metal folded?
  21. Interesting topic. Maybe would should pin a thread and have a list of those companies that dont support off road use/ trail riding so that people can make a choice to not support them.
  22. Of course!
