  1. You've got camera skills...enjoying the pics as much as the write up!
  2. Edit: Nevermind, spoke too soon! I'm not able to make it this weekend after all. This is what I get for not checking with the boss/wife first! I'll reschedule for a later date.... ------------------------------- Thinking of making a baja run on Saturday 5/7. Basically a copy of this ride... http://dualsport-sd.com/forums/index.php?/topic/21508-big-bike-blast-through-bajas-wine-country/ Enter TJ about 9am or so, maybe get some breakfast. Head down 1 along the coast to Ensenada, make a left on 3 into Valle de Gaudelupe. Stop at Deckmans for lunch. Cross back at Tecate. All pavement, nice leisurely ride.Let me know if interested.

    Hand Held Radio Class

    Next workshop is 5/14. I plan to attend. --------- PLEASE FORWARD WIDELY Monthly "Communicator Gateway" Workshop Date: Saturday, May 14, 2016, 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. Location: Scripps La Jolla Hospital Campus in San Diego (Schaetzel Center, next to main hospital building) 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 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." 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 sitewww.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). Thank you. . . . Rob K6RJF ARES Training Coordinator

    Hand Held Radio Class

    This is exactly what I need. I hardly use my HT and when I do I need to restudy the manual for AN HOUR to remember how to program/use it. I just emailed Rob to get on his mail list. Thanks for posting this up.
  5. Yea, I saw that same episode and knew a trip down there was in my immediate future. Here a link to the episode, Deckman's starts at the 10 minute mark... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jxvX2pxd1wc This will be my next destination after I get back from the DV Noobs Rally next week.
  6. Second to last pic...looks like your caliper slide pin is sticking. Ha, JK! Nice photo composition. Were you moving when you got that shot?
  7. "My wife was absolutely furious with anger for a couple of days, but I believe that it was absolutely worth it. ;-)" Oh man, I had to laugh at that one! I can totally relate. My wife actually stopped talking to me for a couple days when I told her I was buying a bike. She's still not totally okay with it. I haven't told her yet about the 2 week Cabo trip I hope to do this late Spring

    STOLEN 2006 FORD F-250

    I know you said you think they dragged it off, but have you considered a hidden kill switch? This was one of the first things I did when I got my F-350 PSD years ago.

    Bmw f800gs or ?

    Mike, If you're looking to test ride, more than welcome to take my 2011 F800 out for a spin. It's set up for a tall rider and you know where I live.

    Dang it, I really wanted to make this but got stuck at work last minute! I had a feeling I was missing out on some good info.

    Reconfirming I'm in.
  13. Forgot to add, you're more than welcome to test ride if wanted.
  14. My F800 has the .95 Racetech springs, bought it that way. I tip the scales at 169lbs dripping wet and the bike handles fine to me, but I'm a noob, so what the hell do I know.
