    KTM shop recommendations

    The shop I work at, C&D cycles in San Diego could certainly handle that. As well as NCY, Poway powersports and Motoworld of El Cajon (they're all KTM Dealers,C&D isn't) As mentioned above, there's definitely SDAR members who could do this for sure.
  2. So, I have the Rekluse in my 300, whichis a game-changer for a short-legged guy like me in the technical stuff. I don't have one in the 500 and I tell myself that this helps me keep what little clutch skills I have.

    When you dial 911 from your phone, are they able to see exactly where you are like they do with a Spot?

    Glad it wasn't worse. Get well soon! Curious: was this one of those situations where you sent an SOS thru a Spot or some such? Like to know the details on the immeadiate plan of action and rescue.
  5. Every time I read one of your amazing stories I think I'd like to get a "Real" Adventure bike , but then I go and look at one and realize just how BIG these things really are (compared to my little 500exc) and that intimidates the heck out of me. Being a life-long dirt-bike only guy for 48years I can't imagine taking those bikes on some of those trails that I would want to. I really think I'd get myself in over my head really quick. It'd be tough to know when to scale back,

    Electric: Maybe they've finally figured it out

    The thought of going to a Supercross race and watching the bikes ride around in silence just depresses me......

    Kernan on a Big Bike...

    Well done. I wouldn't want to tackle that trail with such a big bike. Even though you say it's "only" 450lbs LOL! All that loose rock with such weight sounds pretty sketchy.
  9. Got to try out my evaporative cooling vest today at McCain. Seemed to work pretty good. Not sure how long it will last but it was still damp after 2 hours of slow going in high 80's. Wore it under my under armour which was under my jersey.

    Tech talk taco Tuesday

    "Tons of experience and knowledge distilled down to easy listening shop talk..." Yeah, it's perfect to play in the background while you're out fussing with the scoot.

    Xplor Forks - DIY 15min revalve ! Testers needed.

    I had George put a set on my 500 EXC. Haven't really had a chance to test them out yet. I'm hoping they'll help out in the Dez.
