    Looking for a used 500 exc f - questions

    Looking forward to seeing how you like it. I'm planning to buy a bigger, newer bike sometime soon. Right now thinking a tiger 800 for longer adventure rides. But torn about losing dirt capability. Wondering if the 500 would satisfy my need to be able to do longer rides and still do the rougher dirt stuff. Let us know how it goes.
  2. Up until a couple of weeks ago, I was seriously thinking about going out for a solo ride. It was posts like this one that convinced me to stay home. Riding with the fear of getting hurt front and center in your mind only seems to make it more likely something bad is going to happen. It's scary enough going to work everyday and interacting with customers, and worrying about bringing something home to my wife. Going to the hospital is bad enough in normal times, but it would really suck now. And tougher on your family knowing you would have to be there alone. I'm staying home when not at work until this is over. Thanks for the skiing article. It really drives the message home.
  3. Sounds like another great Dash. Sorry to have missed it after 8 straight years but personal and physical issues got in the way. Hopefully we will be back in the mix next year. Thanks to those posting pics and videos and sharing the experience.
  4. I'm off all next week. Wouldn't mind meeting up for a desert ride anytime next week.

    New Tiger 800 rider in San Diego

    Hopeing to get a bigger bike one of these days for longer adventure rides. The Tiger is first on my list. Really like the way that bike looks.
  7. Awesome write up and adventure. Going to have to add Utah to my list of rides to do in the next couple of years.
  8. Throttle Out is a good show. Every week a different project and ride on motorcycles. Motortrend TV is included on Youtube TV which we went instead of paying spectrum for cable.

    Unpaid Tab at SDAR Meeting 7/17

    I was amazed at the number of people there. The reason I drove out from yuma was because I was afraid the meeting would just be you and Mike talking to each other. Happy to see so many faces.

    New SDAR shirt - Looking for quick input

    I like them and even though half of the shirts in my closet seem to be sdar desert dash shirts, I will buy a couple more of these shirts. Wearing them reminds me to get off my but and ride.

    Long Way Up

    Exactly. For me it's just like watching the car shows on Velocity. I enjoy them even though I know I dont have a 100grand in donated tools and parts and unlike them my hands actually get dirty working on my car. It's a bit of fantasy but its entertainment. Not a lot of real life adventure seminars in Yuma, so stuff like this and YouTube is close as I'm going to get right now.
